Accessibility and mobility at destinations
In order for a destination to become a smart destination, it is necessary that activities, tourist places and attractions are easily accessible to everyone, without exception, and the tourist can get to them easily and without queues.
In addition, it is desirable that the tourist get to these places with minimal harm to the environment and with a minimal carbon footprint.
Despite the apparent simplicity of the task, its implementation is often complex and requires assistance from local authorities.
