Higher Venice Tourist Tax is a need...

Home >  Facts about Venice >  Venice Tourist Tax >

Do I have to pay extra Venice tourist tax? Why? Yes, also Venice Italy feels the consequence of an economic crisis in Europe. Tourists are spending less nights in the city. They think twice before they spend their money. 

The local government is collecting a better income by raising the tax. Since 2011 tourists in the city who overnight have to pay an extra high tax. I think,, let them please use this extra income to renovate the city!!! What do you think? 

Venice Facts Tourist Tax

The tax introduction is the result of the decision of the Italian government and Venetian city. They gave permission to the local Italian authorities to stimulate tourism for the long term. Which means preservation of cultural heritage, the environment and financing of public services.

Tip 1: Discover Venice by gondola and experience the magic of the city from the water. Through my partner Tiqets.nl we have tickets from EUR 32 , - Book here >

Most tourists pay a hundred euro for a short gondola ride. And this tip is for you to take a gondola ride just for a few bucks is our secret. Shhh...

Due the Venice Tourist Tax Hotels are expensive...

The tourist tax, which is obviously not affecting the local residents, will be levied on the first 5 nights in the city. The rates vary by season (low and high), by location (mainland, the islands and the old city) and by type of accommodation. Do you want to know my rates for hotels in Venice, B & B, camping sites and cottages? My fares on the Venice accommodation are inclusive this tax!

Children between 10 and 16 years pay half price. Children under 10 pay no tax at all in Venice. And travelers who stay in youth hostels and other facilities owned by the City of Venice, remain unaffected by the new city tax.

So what does this mean for your holiday in Venice? When you are staying in high season in a Venetian five star hotel you will pay € 4.50 per person per night. In low season you will pay for the same hotel € 0.70 less. The amount of taxes for the less luxurious stay is more variable (see two paragraphs above).

As a visitor of Venice you will not notice this extra tourist tax directly. The hotels and other accommodation included this tax already in their nightly rates. You can imagine; a stay of 3 nights will already cost you an extra of  max. € 13,50. But this depends on your accommodation and the season. 

And you? Did you notice when you paid this higher tax? I hope the tax is used for the right purpose and the right way to preserve Venice... That will be good for the local residents of Venice. They are very proud of their city from the water! And we have to protect the city against more commercial initiatives.
