Paphos and Sevilla selected as European Capitals of Smart Tourism

Paphos and Sevilla on Wednesday were named the winners of the EU’s 2023 European Capitals of Smart Tourism competition.

According to an announcement, the two European Capitals of Smart Tourism will receive promotional support, as well as a purpose-built sculpture for their city centres, which will be displayed prominently for the duration of their year as a European Capital of Smart Tourism.

They will also become part of the growing network of smart tourism cities in Europe in view of sharing their experience and best practices.

The European Capital of Smart Tourism is an initiative that promotes smart tourism in the EU by rewarding cities for their pioneering approaches in accessibility, digitalisation, sustainability, and cultural heritage and creativity.

For the 2023 competition, 29 cities from across 13 countries competed for the title of European Capital of Smart Tourism.

The cities were evaluated by a jury on three criteria: the city’s programme of activities envisaged to implement in 2023; the city’s overall commitment to develop as a smart tourism destination, and the city’s capacity to act as a role model and inspire other cities.
