Venice has released details of a new tourist tax that will be introduced next year.

The new tax will come into effect on January 16, 2023 and will only apply to day trippers.

The city originally planned to introduce a tourism levy this summer as a way to combat overtourism, but has decided to push it back to May next year.

Simone Venturini, Venice's tourism adviser, called the tax a "great revolution".

"Venice is a living city and it must remain so," Venturini said, explaining that the goal was to reduce "tourist peaks."

Travelers will need to register online on the day they plan to visit and pay a fee of approximately $3 to $10 per person, depending on the time of year and city traffic. Those who fail to pay the tax face fines of up to $315 dollars.

Children under 6 years of age will be exempt from the fee. Visitors who book a hotel stay will also be exempt as they are already paying the $5,33 per night tax.

About four-fifths of all tourists visiting Venice come for the day, and in 2019 it was visited by about 19 million people.

The fee, which has been in place since 2019, is Venice's latest attempt to combat overtourism. The idea was justified by the near-immediate improvement the city saw after the pandemic halted tourism, including allowing its famous canals to start cleaning up.

Last year, Italy declared the waterways around Venice a "national monument" and banned large cruise ships from entering the lagoon pool near Piazza San Marco and the Giudecca Canal.

Italy welcomes travelers from the United States and does not require them to present proof of vaccination or a negative COVID-19 test for entry. The country has also stopped requiring visitors to show proof of vaccination to visit places like restaurants, bars and museums.
