Venice, Italy's famed water city, began a trial entry fee system at the end of April to combat increasing traffic congestion, according to a new report. For nine consecutive days from April 25, and specific periods every weekend until mid-July, those who enter Venice but do not plan to stay overnight will have to pay a city fee of 5 euros (39.16 yuan). Any visitor who fails to pay the city fee may face a fine of up to 50 to 300 euros (391.6 to 2349.81 yuan) and will have to pay 10 euros (78.3 yuan) back to the city fee.

据最新报道称,意大利著名的水城威尼斯为了应对日益严重的交通拥堵问题,于4月底开始尝试实施进城费制度。该制度从4月25日起的连续9天,以及7月中旬前的每个周末特定时间段,那些进入威尼斯但不打算在城中过夜的游客,需要支付5欧元(折合人民币约为39.16元)的进城费用。而任何未支付进城费用的游客将可能面临高达50至300欧元(折合人民币391.6元至2349.81元)的罚款,并需补缴10欧元(折合人民币约为78.3元)的进城费用。

 

After the policy comes into effect, eligible visitors will need to pay their fees and obtain a QR code through the government website between 8:30 a.m. and 4 p.m. to enter Venice. Tourists who have booked a stay at a local hotel in Venice, as well as minors under the age of 14, are also required to pre-register and obtain a QR code but do not have to pay a city fee. In addition, residents, residents, students, workers, and homeowners in Venice are not included in the fee.

此项政策生效后,符合条件的游客需要在上午8时半至下午4时的时间段内,通过政府网站完成缴费并获取二维码,方可进入威尼斯。对于已预订威尼斯当地酒店住宿的游客以及14岁以下的未成年人,虽然也需要预先登记并获取二维码,但无需支付进城费用。另外,威尼斯的当地居民、住户、学生、工人及房主等,也均不在收费之列。

 

The original intention of the Venice municipal government to launch this policy is to guide tourists to come to Venice during the relatively idle time through economic means, to reduce the traffic pressure in the city. Venice Mayor Brugnaro also said that the city fee is not intended to increase government revenue, but is aimed at protecting Venice, which faces serious congestion problems due to the large number of tourists, so that it can return to its former calm and livable.

威尼斯市政府推出这一政策的初衷,是希望通过经济手段引导游客在威尼斯较为空闲的时段前来游玩,从而减轻城市的交通压力。威尼斯市长布鲁格纳罗也表示,征收进城费并非为了增加政府收入,而是旨在保护威尼斯这座因游客众多而面临严重拥堵问题的城市,使其恢复往日的宁静与宜居。
