Until recently, economists have been reluctant to rely on culture as a possible determinant of economic phenomena. Much of this reluctance stems from the very notion of culture: it is so broad and the channels through which it can enter economic discourse so ubiquitous (and vague) that it is difficult to design testable, refutable hypotheses (Guiso, Sapienza, Zingales, 2006). According to Global Data, ‘Cultural Tourism’ is defined as tourism that offers travellers an opportunity to learn and develop their cultural understanding, through historical site visits, local crafts, cookery workshops, and arts.
