In June 2024, Venice is implementing targeted entry restrictions aimed at managing the city's significant influx of tourists, especially during peak periods. This approach includes the introduction of a new entry fee for day trippers, a measure designed to mitigate the impact of short-term visitors on the city's infrastructure and local life.

The entry fee is specifically tailored to affect independent day trippers, those who visit Venice for just a few hours and often contribute to overcrowding without staying overnight. The fee will be imposed during what are identified as peak tourism times, not only encompassing select dates in June but also stretching to other high-traffic periods from late April through early July. 

Venice Entry Fee Exemptions

  • Residents and Local Workers: The entry fee is primarily targeted at day trippers, meaning residents, local workers, and guests staying overnight in Venice may be exempt from this fee. This distinction aims to reduce the burden on locals and encourage tourists to stay longer, contributing more sustainably to the local economy.

These new regulations signify Venice's commitment to sustainable tourism management, aiming to reduce the negative impacts of overtourism while ensuring the city remains a vibrant, accessible destination.
