Venice Access Fee: how it works


Starting in spring 2024, Venice will introduce a booking system and an access fee for day trippers: visitors not staying in accommodation in Venice overnight (and residing outside the Veneto region) will have to book online and pay a fee of €5 during the peak tourism periods of the year (those sleeping in accommodation in Venice already pay a tourist tax).

The fee will apply on 29 days, starting from April 25 to May 5 and also during weekends in May and June - excluding the Festa della Repubblica weekend (1-2 June) - as well as the first two weekends of July. The day-tripper fee will only apply during peak hours from 8:30am to 4pm.

This fee, a first-of-its-kind experiment, aims at managing visitor influx more effectively and preserving the city's unique heritage, discouraging 'hit-and-run' tourism.

On the website of the City of Venice there are FAQs on the Access Fee that explain everything you need to know before arriving in Venice.

All visitors over the age of 14, who do not stay overnight on the dates on which the fee will be applicable, and do not reside in the Veneto region, will have to book their visit and pay the €5 fee in advance. 

To manage the entry process, visitors will need to register on the online platform https://cda.ve.it/en/ that has been launched on January 16.

Upon booking, visitors will receive a QR code that certifies the payment of the fee (or the exclusion/exemption condition). In order to prove that you have booked and paid for entry - as well as that you are exempt from payment - simply show the QR-code to officials at Venice's main access points.
