At the very last minute before it was supposed to be implemented, Venice has postponed its trialling of entry fee for tourists until next year. Earlier I April it had announced that is was going to experiment with the fee to ease over tourism and crowding in its main areas.

As visitor numbers returned to pre-pandemic levels earlier in the spring, the city council earlier this year decided to move forward with the entry fee after postponing it due to covid, reports Euronews, but now it will officially launch on Jan. 16, 2023.

This plan to charge has been floating around since 2018.
