"Orbasil's deeply researched and firmly structured book is timely and apposite.... the book is a useful contribution to the literature on tourism and conservation in historic towns....."
-"Urban Design, 2001
..."the author has widely focused on a series of detailed case studies....employed in a way that both elucidates the theory and makes it relevant to the real dilemmas of planning and, indeed, living in those historic towns that play host to the global tourism industry.."
-"Journal of Architectural Conservation, 2000
..."a text such as this is to be welcomed...This book is well produced and contains much useful information and I can see it being a useful student text and perhaps a source for practitioners...."

For the tourist industry, history has become a product that can be marketed, sold and even re-created. Historic settlements and urban areas have become products for consumers seeking an experience. Tourists in Historic Towns examines the relationship of culture, heritage, conservation and tourism development in historic towns and urban centres, debating the impacts of tourism on historic towns and the role tourism plays in conservation and urban continuity. Discussing long-term planning and effective management, based on strategic decision-making which is multi-disciplinary and multi-dimensional, the book aims to provide guidance in tourism development and visitor management for historic towns, in support of sustainable development objectives and community development. The main focus of the book is medium-sized historic towns and historic quarters which are attractive to the tourist market, but historic quarters in large cities and smaller rural settlements are not excluded. The book covers historic towns that are established or emerging on the tourist market in both developed and developing countries.Alongside over a hundred examples of historic towns, five historic towns are discussed as case studies: Granada, Spain; York, England; Mdina, Malta; Antalya, Turkey and Quedlinburg, Germany. Aylin Orbasli is a trained architect and specialist on the subject of historic towns: tourism, conservation and development. She actively works in the field both as a practitioner and as a consultant, also continuing to research the subject. She works internationally as a consultant, advising on heritage management, tourism planning and development.
