Benátky poplatek za vstup

Why did Venice introduce an entrance fee?

Venice, one of the world's most popular tourist destinations, has faced long-standing problems related tom with excessive numbers of visitors, leading to wear and tear on the infrastructure and difficulties in the daily lives of the city's inhabitants. The introduction of an admission charge is one of the efforts to reduce 'one-hour tourism', which burdens the city without benefiting the local economy.

How will the entrance fee work? Who will pay the entrance fee and who will not?

The admission fee will be collected from tourists who plan to visit the city for one day. The amount of the fee will depend on the season, with higher fees during peak periods (green, yellow and red days are planned). Tourists booking accommodation in Venice will be exempt from the fee, as will children under 14 years of age, disabled persons, residents of the region and students attending educational institutions.

Atest run is planned for 2024, where a fee of 5€ per person will be charged only on selected days of the year: - mainly on public holidays from 25.4. 5.5. and the following weekends until 14.7. (all other days remain free):
