Submitted by HedonisticHiking on 7 Feb 2024
Following the announcement of new tourist rules for Venice this year, the platform for day-trippers to purchase the €5 fee to enter the city launched on January 17th, allowing visitors to make their payment before arriving in the city. The fee does not apply for any visitor who stays overnight.
The authorities in Venice have officially enforced the entry fee, also known as the Venice Access Fee, for day visitors sightseeing in the ancient City of Canals during 29 designated dates in the year. The initiative aims to strike a balance between preserving the daily life of Venice residents and providing an exceptional experience for visitors.
This Access Fee initiative seeks to discourage daily tourism during peak periods. The €5 per day fee, applicable only to the historical parts of the city, ensures sustainability for both residents and tourists. The system issues a QR code upon payment, streamlining the experience for visitors while contributing to the responsible management of Venice's unique charm. The fee is applicable on specific days from 25th April to 5th May and on weekends in May, June, and July, from 8:30 am to 4 pm, excluding access to the islands.
