Tourist tax – Venice, that top spot for romantic getaways, has introduced a tourist tax on people staying in hotels in the city. The tax will be introduced on 24 August and is set to be around 5 Euros a night for 5* hotels dropping in price for lower starred hotels and halving during the low-season. The tax is intended to raise £20m a year to pay for vital restoration work in the city which has for some time been in danger of sinking. Tourism is a huge part of the city’s culture as the population of 60k regularly doubles on a daily basis with the huge influx of tourists. It is no use thinking staying in a tent will save you from the new tax as it will apply to the area’s campsites as well as hotels and b&b’s.
