Tourist caps: Dubrovnik has be­come the lat­est tourist hotspot to an­nounce a cap on vis­i­tor num­bers in a bid to avoid ru­inous over­crowd­ing. The mayor of the city, where cruise ships un­load thou­sands of tourists at a time, has an­nounced a daily cap of 4,000 tourists en­ter­ing the old city, which will come into ef­fect within two years. This sum­mer has seen anti-tourist marches in Venice and Barcelona, while last week the re­gional gov­ern­ment of Spain’s Balearic Is­lands an­nounced new caps on the num­ber of ho­tel beds and stricter rules on short-term rentals such as Airbnb.
