While other countries are trying to boost their tourism sector, Resort towns in Italy are doing the very opposite and are reportedly banning tourists.
Cinque Terre is comprised of five brightly coloured and picturesque fishing villages which host some 2.5 million tourists each year.
This number is more than the villages can bear and locals fear that their community is being swamped by tourism, The Local reports.
In a bid to reduce tourism, park authorities are reportedly going to set a fixed maximum number of tourists who will need to purchase a special access card online in advance of their visit. The precise number for the new quota has yet to be decided.
