The current Mediterranean tourism development model started during the first European tourist revolution in the 50s and 60s. As a result, tourism has created a number of different types of destinations. Some of these destinations are implementing strategies that are changing its tourism microenvironment. At the same time, new destinations appear and new spaces have been identified as targets for the tourism gaze. According to it, this lecture will introduce a theoretical debate about conditions of tourism development and redevelopment in the Mediterranean and some issues for a research and management agenda.
