Venice will reintroduce entry fee next year

The authorities of Venice have confirmed that fees for anyone to enter the city without an overnight reservation will be charged on January 1, 2022.

“In view of the current situation of the Covid-19 pandemic, we have decided to make an important gesture on the optical means that we hope to encourage tourists to return,” announced Michele Zuin, the MP in charge of economic affairs.

The access fee (contributo di accesso) or access fee will be priced according to the busyness of the city to discourage people from entering during peak hours and thereby distract them throughout the season.

The official data for 2022 has not been confirmed, but for the plan to be implemented in 2020, it is planned to increase the maximum amount to 10 euros (12 US dollars) on the busiest days.

Tourists who spend the night in the city are tax-exempt, and this is designed to encourage people to stay overnight, thereby putting more money into the economy.
