ICT e-Infrastructures represent a new Renaissance for our society, influencing every single aspect of our daily life.

According to WTO, the Internet is also playing a fundamental role in the distribution of tourism information and sales. Increasing proportion of users are buying services on–line, in this sense, online booking and reservation services have been widely accepted among both  leisure and business travelers to a degree where it is true to say that “e-tourism” has taken off and the touristic sector will gain a larger and larger share of the online  commerce market.
