How Venice Entry Fee Will Work


Venice, the iconic Italian city renowned for its picturesque canals and rich history, is set to make history once again as it becomes the first city in the world to implement a day trip fee for tourists. This groundbreaking decision comes as Venice grapples with the challenges of overtourism, a phenomenon that has plagued the city for years.


According to reports from various sources including The Independent and Timeout, starting next year, visitors to Venice will be required to pay a fee of €5 to enter the city for day trips. The fee will apply to all tourists arriving in the city by cruise ship, train, or bus. There will be exemptions for certain categories of visitors, such as students, residents of the Veneto region, and children under the age of six. Visitors staying in Venice hotels overnight will also not be subject to the fee, but they will still be required to register online and acquire a code to gain passage through checkpoints.


The decision to implement a day trip fee in Venice is part of a broader strategy to promote sustainable tourism and protect the city's cultural heritage. In recent years, Venice has taken steps to limit the number of cruise ships allowed to dock in its port, restrict short-term rentals, and introduce measures to combat littering and vandalism.


If you plan on traveling to Venice in the near future, keep this new measure in mind. As always, our dedicated SVH Travel Agents are also here to answer any of your questions and to help guide you in the right direction. Just give us a call at (818) 543-1821 for assistance.
