[Venice] City to introduce tourist tax

Would this deter anyone here from going? Not me…

Also, it seems that tourists are all over Italy again. Saw someone posting hour long queues for the Vatican on instagram…

Wouldnt deter me.

If I’m a day-tripper (possibly on a beach holiday at Jesolo or a cruise ship passenger), then I’m already paying a lot that a few euros more makes no difference.

Tourist taxes are already well established elsewhere in italy (and in the Balearics)

Tourists were all over Paris last week (Easter Week) but seem to have vanished this week. But I expect them back beginning in 3-4 weeks and very heavy over the summer.
