Venice is one of the most visited cities in Italy and a real tourist magnet.

From 2022 the long-planned entrance fee for tourists should come.

Venice has been trying to get mass tourism under control for a long time.

Before the corona pandemic, huge crowds caused traffic jams in the narrow streets of the Italian city and there was also a lot of traffic in the canals.

For this reason, an entrance fee for tourists has been planned for some time, which is now to be officially introduced next year.

Day trip to Venice: From 2022 only for an entrance fee

From the summer of 2022, day tourists will only come to Venice for a fee, as reported by the news site

Travel + Leisure

, citing the Italian portal

La Stampa

. This varies depending on the season.

For the high season in summer a maximum of 10 euros should be due, for the less popular travel times at least 3 euros are planned

Corona pandemic reduces pollutants in Venice

Originally, the

entrance fees for day tourists were to

be introduced in summer 2019.

The corona pandemic initially thwarted the plans.

Nevertheless, due to the slump in tourism, Venice achieved a

40 percent

decrease in

pollutants

in the canals and waters, as

reported by

La Stampa

The fee is intended to ensure that the water quality and cleanliness in the city can continue to improve.

Venice introduced a ban on large cruise liners in the city center last month.

Small ships should still be allowed to sail into the lagoon.
