Venice reporters exclaim the city will start charging day-trippers for entering the packed city historic centers. This rule will be effective starting from next summer, with fees as high as €10 planned for peak season.
The city’s council approved it on Thursday, to introduce the new ‘contributo di accesso’ (landing fee) from July 1st, 2020. The charge, which will only apply to tourists not staying overnight, is set at €3 standard rate, rising to €6 on busier days and €8 on the very busiest.
From 2021 the rates will rise to €6 standard rate and €8-10 on peak days, though visitors will get a discount in off-peak season to €3.
Meanwhile, cruise ships and other vessels bringing day-trippers in by sea will pay a flat rate of €5 per person per day in 2020, rising to €7 the following year.
