Paper Title: Binding Culture and Tourism through Literature: The potential of Literary Tourism.

Authors: Carvalho InÍs, Baptista Maria Manuel, Costa Carlos

Abstract:
This study aims at providing some hints on the potential of literary tourism for business and regional development.
It begins with the presentation and critical analysis of definitions of culture, literature and tourism. These concepts are then interrelated. The profile of the literary tourist is also characterised and the overlap between literary and film-induced tourism is analysed.
Finally, the potential of literary tourism is explored through the analysis of ten international good practices in the field. Single literary tours, companies offering several literary routes and literary tours resulting from public-private partnerships are under analysis.
