Paid Access Tax in Venice for Tourists in 2023: Regulations, Paiement, Prices and Exemptions


After several years of discussions, the city of Venice has decided to introduce a paid access tax for tourists who come to Venice for just one day.

2023 Date of entry into service of the Venice Access Tax

The payment of the entrance tax to Venice for tourists who do not stay there (initially planned for June 2022) will only become effective in 2023 on a date that is not yet fixed.

The Price of the Entrance Tax in Venice

The entrance fee to Venice should vary between 3 and 10 euros depending on the time of year, major events, etc. But the final price has not yet been decided.

How do I pay the Venice Entrance Tax?

Venice's tourist and entry tax will be payable through an application for smartphones (which does not yet exist) or by credit card or bank transfer.

Exemption from paying the tax for stays in Venice of more than one day

Tourists who will stay in Venice for more than one day will not have to pay it since they already pay the tourist tax when they book a hotel room, bed and breakfast or apartment.

What is the Venice Access Tax for?

This tax, which only applies to those who pass through Venice without sleeping, is made to relieve the Venetians of the costs they pay today alone to maintain the city and its services:

The household waste service (which costs 41 million euros per year).
Maintenance and repair of the pavers (Masegni) that cover the streets of Venice.
The maintenance and repair of bridges.
The maintenance of docks and banks.

Maintaining the city's heritage, monuments of art and other elements that you appreciate during your stay.
