New Venice tax details

The postponed Venice accommodation tax outlined in the June/July issue (GTO 223) finally came into force on 24th August.

The tax will be calculated at €1 (88p) per person, per star, per night, for a maximum of five nights. There are, however, reductions and exemptions. For example, guides with groups of 25 plus will be exempt, and there will be a differentiation of the centre of Venice (including the Lido), the islands and the mainland (such as Mestre and Marghera).
