From 1 January 2020, visitors staying overnight in Florence will pay an increased tourist tax after the city council voted to increase the so-called tassa di soggiorno.

Tourists staying in one- and two-star hotels will pay an additional €1 per night (increasing from €2 to €3 and from €3 to €4 respectively), while the tax applied to three-star hotels will increase from €4 to €4.50 and four-star overnight stays will go from €4.80 to €4.90.

Those staying in campsites and hostels will also pay an additional €1 per night, increasing from €2 to €3, however the €5 overnight charge applied to five-star hotels in Florence will remain unchanged. 

Venice recently announced that it would introduce a tourist entry fee, taking effect on 1 July 2020. At the beginning the tax will range from a €3 standard rate to €6 on busier days, rising to €8 during the peak season. However from 1 January 2021 the standard daily rate will increase to €6, rising to €8 in busier periods and €10 in the peak summer season.
