RENAISSANCE aims to develop a valid, reliable and integrated package of access and mobility measures for historic cities. These will make possible the rediscovery, preservation and enhancement of historic cities in Europe, together with the sustainable development of the local economy, to the benefit of visitors, residents and local business alike. RENAISSANCE brings together a group of historic/tourism cities across Europe that are in the vanguard of sustainable development.
The RENAISSANCE cities have a strong reliance on heritage and tourism, which must marry environmental concerns, and sustainable access and mobility, with economic development. The partners face common problems: they are all historic cities with common layouts, and very valuable heritage to be preserved and enhanced. The partners also face unique local and regional challenges, including those brought about by social and economic integration within the EU. There is great added value in RENAISSANCE because the best practices that will be demonstrated will have resonance and relevance throughout the range of European Historic Cities.
