Travelers to pay US$11 per person, per day in Venice from 2020

Published on : Saturday, October 12, 2019

In Venice tourist tax will now cost visitors US$11 per person, per day, effective from July 1, 2020.

 

Travelers will soon face higher fees in the popular “City of Bridges.”

 

The tax for day-trippers would vary from US$3.30 to $11 per person, per day.

 

The original plan was for the new tourist tax to be brought into practice shortly after it was announced almost a year ago, but authorities in Venice wanted to decide how the money would be collected and the law would be enforced.

 

The new regulations would provide fee waivers for people visiting the canal city for work, study or family reasons. Other travelers coming to Venice will have to pay the tax via pre-payments over the internet, in neighboring provinces or another yet-to-be-determined way.

 

Visitors staying overnight in Venice already pay a tax as part of their accommodation charge.

 

However, the Italian city isn’t the only tourism hotspot taxing travelers.

 

Barcelona is working on legislation to increase the current tax rates by four Euros by 2020.

 

Amsterdam announced that it is adding another US$3 per person, per night fee on travelers staying overnight in hotels, which is an addition to the 7% tax on room rates that it currently charges.

 

For Venice, the new tax is to make the millions of day-trippers who visit Venice each year contribute for maintaining the city, including balancing the high charges that locals pay for services like trash collection.

 

The tax follows a series of efforts put forward by Venice to restrain overtourism.
