THE HEIRS OF TITUS FLAVIUS

The project “The heirs of Titus Flavius” has been developed within the framework of Strand 2, Measure 2.1 of C.I. Leader+. It reflects an effort to combine community involvement, regional governance and academic research in order to : 

  • a- educate stakeholders to the values of heritage interpretation, 
  • b- manage leisure time for non-captive audiences in recreational settings, and 
  • c- to create a non-exchangeable tourism image for the high-density, multicultural heritage sites in the historic area of Maroneia, Greece. 

An interpretive planning framework has been developed in order to realize desired visitor experience outcomes: it addresses a series of research questions such as: 

  • a- What are the prerequisites for a place / heritage object to become “visit-worthy”, 
  • b- What is meant by the historic environment and how can this be safely offered to tourism, 
  • c- What do visitors expect to derive from an situ visit (experiences and services), 
  • d- Which communication processes and heritage presentation methods are most suitable for recreational audiences, 
  • e- What is the role prior knowledge plays to select a destination, 
  • f- How to access heritage resources physically, mentally and spiritually and last but not least: 
  • g- how to connect heritage resources to the conventional tourism product components (transport, accommodation, catering, shopping).
