Venice introduces a fee of 5 EURO / day in order to reduce the number of tourists
In an attempt to reduce the large number of tourists visiting Venice every day, the Italian authorities have decided to impose certain restrictions as well as taxes.
The Deputy Mayor for Social Welfare, Tourism and Economic Development in Venice, Simone Venturini, explained that by imposing restrictions, the aim is to discourage one-day tourism and, at the same time, to encourage slower tourism.
In this context, Venice imposes a fee of 5 euros / day. Specifically, it is a ticket that costs 5 EURO, and all those who want to visit Venice will be required to book this ticket online. The ticket will be valid for one day only. The authorities have decided to establish such a short validity for these tickets in order to reduce the number of visitors.
Moreover, the local authorities in Venice will close the main access to the historic centers as well as equip the city with 500 rooms to monitor the movement of visitors.
Italy currently maintains strict entry restrictions for all those wishing to enter the country. All passengers are required to present a valid vaccination or recovery certificate. In addition, passengers must present a completed passenger location form and a negative pre-arrival test.
