Tourists will have to pay and book to enter Venice from January 16, 2023. This is a measure aimed at trying to control mass tourism that has been affecting the proper functioning of the city for years, according to informed this Friday the City Council.

Venice will thus become the first city in the world to charge tourists an entrance fee. The ticket price, which can be purchased online, will be up to 10 euros per person, although it will fluctuate depending on the system of supply and demand and the time in which they are purchased.

In this way, the city will have a maximum number of tourists per day. Those who spend the night in Venice will be exempt from this payment, since they carry the rate included in the accommodation, as well as residents, workers or students of the region or those who visit it for some reason or event.
