The theme of this paper is the relationship between tourism and environment, with particular reference to the ways of protecting tourist areas characterized by fragile ecosystems, such as parks and beaches. This paper analyzes and tries to show that environmental protection is not only a legal obligation in relation to the hydro-geology of the territory, but could also become an important tool for strengthening a tourist area. Green Tourism is one of the recently entered words in our vocabulary, and which, although using it increasingly more often, sometimes we do not fully understand it. In fact this notion still seeks a more complete definition, closer to the area of activities it virtually covers. Most often the preferred formula is "tourism that does not harm nature."
