Savour local specialities such as cicchetti, small appetisers that will make you fall in love with the flavours of the lagoon.

At every turn, Venice reveals its uniqueness, capturing the soul of those who visit. This enchanting city, with its timeless romanticism, promises an unforgettable journey through the canals and calli of one of the world’s most fascinating destinations.

Precisely because of its uniqueness, its beauty attracts tourists from all over the world. Unfortunately, however, the city also has a very fragile ecosystem that mass tourism is damaging. To protect and preserve the lagoon city, the city council has decided to introduce an entrance fee, which will come into effect in 2024.

How to get the voucher

During the period from 25 April to 14 July 2024, visitors to Venice will have to pay an access fee on specific days, except during the hours of 16:00-8:30.

Residents and those born in Venice are exempt, while children under 14 can prove their exemption with a document. To obtain the exemption, tourists must register and acquire a voucher.
