e-Tourism is a tourist recommendation and planning application to assist users on the organization of a leisure and tourist agenda. First, a recommender system offers the user a list of the city places that are likely of interest to the user. This list takes into account the user demographic classification, the user likes in former trips and the preferences for the current visit. Second, a planning module schedules the list of recommended places according to their temporal characteristics as well as the user restrictions; that is the planning system determines how and when to perform the recommended activities. This is a very relevant feature that most recommender systems lack as it allows the user to have the list of recommended activities organized as an agenda, i.e. to have a totally executable plan.
