Digital solution to over-tourism in Venice

Dear all,

As part of my digital innovation course assignments at university, I was tasked to come up with a digital solution to the rising problem of over-tourism in Venice.

My idea was to develop a mobile application that proposes tours exclusively outside the historical center of Venice, so as to get people out of the city. The application would essentially act as a personal voice-guided tour guide of the hidden lagoons around Venice. Along the way, the app will notify the user of restaurants, workshops and other attractions available in the given area. Users can then choose to engage in this by purchasing tickets directly through the app, to go see a show for instance, or simply resume the tour at their own pace. 

I would be very grateful if fellow travelers could provide a short feedback on this idea. Would you use a service such as this one? 

Thank you in advance
