COVID-19 has had diverse global implications that have forced the entire society to stop and rethink its way of life, interactions and customs. It has demonstrated the vulnerability of tourist destinations, making it imperative to find new paths. Furthermore, COVID-19 has required adaptive government management to cope with uncertainty. The absence of a roadmap has left a natural park or a remote town at the same starting point as a tourist city, especially since the sanitary recommendations suggest avoiding crowded areas—one of the main characteristics of urban tourism. To understand the impacts that COVID has had on tourist cities, especially World Heritage sites, we will analyze six cases, each one of them with its own challenges. This will allow us to see how cities are facing the pandemic.
