How does the access fee to enter Venice work?

Starting from April 2024, those wishing to visit Venice for the day, without staying overnight, will be required to pay an entrance fee of 5 euros.

But in any case, everyone, including those staying in hotels or apartments in Venice, will need to register and have a QR code certifying their registration.

The request for the entrance ticket and the QR code to be shown at the controls is currently limited to 29 days a year, mainly corresponding to peak times, such as holidays and long weekends.

On days when the entrance ticket is required, the reservation or payment of the access fee will be valid for the entire day. Therefore, it will be possible to enter and exit the affected areas as desired, showing the QR code in case of checks.


When Does the Entrance Ticket for Visiting Venice Take Effect?

The Access Fee to enter Venice will be active from April 2024 onwards. The intention of the Lagunare Municipality is to use an Access Fee, an economic disincentive that imposes some rules and restrictions for occasional visitors in an attempt to manage the growing problem of tourist overcrowding.

On Which Days Will the Ticket Need to be Paid?

The Access Fee to enter Venice will be applied on certain days in 2024 from 8:30 am to 4:00 pm.

The exact dates in 2024 when the fee is required are:

April: 25, 26, 27, 28, 29, 30

May: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 11, 12, 18, 19, 25, 26

June: 8, 9, 15, 16, 22, 23, 29, 30

July: 6, 7, 13, 14

How Do You Pay for the Ticket to Enter Venice?

The payment of the Access Fee can be made online through the official website.

Subsequently, a QR code will be generated which must be presented to the authorities in case of checks, even for those who are exempt.

QR code vouchers are personalized, but cumulative bookings can be made for family trips or small groups.

Who Does Not Need to Pay the Ticket?

Some categories are exempt from paying the Access Ticket.

Among these are:

  • Guests of accommodation facilities subject to the tourist tax;
  • High school students on educational trips;
  • People with disabilities and their companions;
  • Subjects born in the Municipality of Venice;
  • Minors under the age of 14;
