On July 1, local time, Venturini, the cultural director of Venice, Italy, announced that from January 16, 2023, entry fees will be levied on tourists who arrive and leave the city center and islands of Venice on the same day.

  At that time, travelers who do not stay in Venice will pay 3 to 10 euros to enter the city according to the reservation situation, and violators will be fined 50 to 300 euros.

Venetian residents, students, commuters, relatives and residents of the Veneto region do not have to pay the entry fee.

  Zuin, the city's finance director, said that the city fee is not for making money, and Venice will not be closed to the outside world.

In addition, with the approval of the Italian government, the city of Venice will set limits and conditions for residential properties for short-term rentals, in order to encourage long-term rentals, improve the living environment in historical urban areas, and protect historical and cultural heritage.
