Nowadays, urban management has evolved. Cities are managed for the welfare of most citizens. Urban management has an important role in the success of programs and urban development plans. This issue will be more important especially in relation to sustainable development. Cities due to having natural, historical and cultural attractions are considered as tourism destinations. Development of urban tourism has both positive and negative economic, social, cultural and environmental effects and establishing balance in this field in a manner that it has more positive effects than negative ones requires strong management policies. Thus, sustainability in urban tourism requires systematic attention to the technical, cultural, political, economic, historical and environmental aspects, so that using tourism attractions is in line with today requirements as well as the maintenance and sustainability of resources for future. This paper aims at analyzing essential variables of urban management, in connection with the sustainable development of urban tourism in the city of Kermanshah. The results suggest that a direct positive relationship exists between integrated management and mutual cooperation of urban managers and local people and sustainable development of urban tourism, that is, if urban management is more coordinated and there exists better relations between managers and local people, the possibility of achieving sustainable development of urban tourism will increase.
