In fact, it attracts so many visitors that this year, travelers will have to pay a tourist tax to enter the city in a bid to combat overtourism.

Don’t worry this won’t break the bank. You’ll have to pay 5 euros per day to enter the island of Venice between 8:30 and 16:00. 

Although this fee won’t be officially introduced until 2025 it will be tested throughout 2024. The current test days will be May 11, 12, 18, 19, 19, 25 and 26.

Why Visit Venice? 

Venice is a captivating, breathtakingly beautiful city. Its waterways have captured the hearts and minds of tourists for generations.

It is a small city of grand palaces and old buildings that seem to emerge from the water.

There are no roads in Venice, so traveling by boat (or, if you can afford the luxury, a gondola) is one of the best ways to navigate the city.

There are around 177 different canals to explore in the city, and each offers a unique perspective.  

Because Venice is such a compact city, it’s easy to explore in a relatively short period of time.

It has lots of narrow alleys and ancient streets, and getting lost as you explore these is part of the adventure of spending time in the city.

Venice is a great year-round destination thanks to its Mediterranean climate.

Although the winter months can be cooler and misty, that only adds to the romantic, old-world feel of the city.

And the city tends to be quieter during the winter and spring months too, with the hottest summer months also being the most crowded.  

Some of the main attractions in Venice include the Rialto Bridge, Piazzo San Marco, and the Doge’s Palace.

Fans of art and culture should also explore the galleries and museums such as the Galleria dell'Accademia, Museo Correr, and the Venician Guggenheim collection.
