Venice To Charge Tourists Up To €10 Per Visit

From summer 2022 onwards, Venice could begin to charge tourists who visit.

As one of the world’s top tourist destinations, the number of visitors continues to rise each year, with numbers sitting at the 5 million mark each year.

The city has struggled to cope with the capacity, in particular, with the large number of visitors arriving on cruise ships.

However, in a first step to protect the city’s heritage and environment, the city recently banned large cruise ships from entering.

The proposed fee will vary between €3 and €10 euros, according to whether the visit is in high season or low season. Visitors will enter the city via a Disneyland-style electronic turnstile.

This new planned measure is to control the number of tourists entering the city each year.
