Venice tourist tax website launches

Venice finally introduces long awaited charges for entering the city on peak spring and summer dates

Published by

Venice will now charge visitors €5 per day to try and curb overtourism that is damaging the city.

The city launched a trial last year, which has been expanded this year to the following peak travel dates:

  • 11, 12, 18, 19, 19, 25 and 26 May

  • 8, 9, 15, 16, 16, 22, 22, 22, 22, 22, 23, 29 and 30 June

  • 6, 7, 13 and 14 July

If you wish to visit the city on these days, you'll need to visit the official website here and pay the tax. After that, you'll receive a QR code. While there won't be any physical barriers, inspectors will randomly check that tourists have paid.

There are exemptions in place for residents as well as those who have booked a hotel room and are staying in the city. It's also free for children under the age of six.
