Abstract

The research aims to explore, as part of a pilot project, whether visiting ECoC cities is mainly motivated by a broad interest in cultural experiences – and it is the richness of these cities’ cultural programme which acts as a pull-factor for visitors – or whether the unique status of being a European Capital of Culture is able to add an attraction beyond the general value of the cultural supply. In other words, may ECoC tourism be considered as a niche segment within cultural tourism?
