Since August 24 2011, the Venice City Council introduced a City tax which is in addition to current 10% VAT levies. The Venice City Tax is to be used to finance tourism, the maintenance of cultural heritage sites and the environment as well as public services.
This City tax is payable by all guests and is applicable for stays of a maximum of 5 consecutive nights and is to be settled by guests upon check-out. The City tax is based upon seasonality and age of the visitor. As a 5 star hotel based in Venice, the City tax levies applicable for stays at The Gritti Palace are as follows:
High Season (1 Feb - 31 Dec): €5.00 per person per night
Low Season (1 Jan - 31 Jan): €3.50 per peron per night
Children aged 10 years and under are exempt and children from 11 - 16 years pay 50% of the adult rate. City tax levies are subject to change without notice.
