From 24th August 2011, after Rome, Florence, Otranto and other Italian turist destinations, Venice as well has introduced a tax for tourists.
The tourist tax to be paid varies depending on the following elements: the city where you stay, the type and site of the accommodation, the number of stars, the type and quality of the facilities provived by the accommodation chosen.
For example: in Venice tourists will be asked to pay just a few cents if they stay in a camping in the mainland, or up to 5 euros if they opt for a room in a 5-star hotel.
But if you stay in Venice for more than 5 days, your stay is free of charge from the sixth night.
The task of collecting the tribute has been given to the accommodations’ host: the tourist tax, in fact, has to be paid in place.
The rules concerning the maximum number of nights to be paid and the minimum and maximum amounts to be applied change from town to town.
However, the only thing that is the same in all the Italian cities with tourist tax is that children under the age of 10 are free of charge.
Lakes in Italy are among the main beauties of our landscape heritage, natural paradises that are part of our national pride and which, every year, attract tourists from all over the world.
The most famous are Lake Como, Lake Garda and Lake Maggiore that are all located in the north of Italy and compose the famous “Italian Lake District.”
The delightful towns that spread around these lakes are well connected and close to the major airports in the north such as Milan, Bergamo, Brescia and Verona, so they are easily reachable from wherever you leave.
These blue gems, scattered throughout the peninsula, are poetic areas, evocative of a past literature. The atmosphere that we live walking along the shores of an Italian lake is indeed unique and indescribable, the mountains stand around and then come down to meet the lake banks where many hotels rose to let tourists enjoy a spectacular lake view during their stay.
Finally, do not forget other famous Italian lakes such as Lake Trasimeno in Umbria and Lake Bracciano in Lazio. These two peaceful oasis are perfect for those seeking beautiful landscapes where relaxing the mind and Bracciano, for example, is itself a nice historic town with an historic castle open to the public.
