Now for day trippers in Venice, prior reservation & fee are a must

 Wednesday, July 6, 2022 


Venice from January will allow the day-trippers to make prior reservations and pay a fee to explore this celebrated lagoon city of the world. This move was initiated in a bid to manage visitors in a better way who’s number often times exceed the number of the locals in the capital of Veneto Region, obstructing the narrow streets and foot bridges massively used by criss-crossing the canals.

On Friday, Venice officials disclosed these new rules for the day-trippers to the public, which would go effective from Jan. 16th, 2023.

In hotels, tourists who would select not to stay overnight will have to go for prior online sign up for the day they plan to come and explore the city by paying a fee. The fee range from 3 to 10 euros per person, in terms of advance booking and whether its peak season or the city is already overcrowded.

Offenders will have to provide risk fines which could go as high as 300 euros if stopped and not capable to produce proof that they have booked and paid with a QR Code.

Approximately, four-fifths of visitors come to this Italian city just for the day. Around 19 million day-trippers ihad visited the ‘City of Canals’ n 2019 and provided just a fraction of the revenue from their staying.

The tourism commissioner of Venice rebuffed any suggestion that this new step would definitely limit the number of out-of-towners who are pouring into the most-visited city in Italy.
