From 2024, a €5 fee will be charged to day-trippers entering #Venice (only on 30 selected days).
This comes after cruise ships were banned from entering the lagoon in 2021.
It is an experiment to PROTECT the city against mass tourism. Will it be enough to prevent Venice becoming Veniceland, a theme park instead of a liveable city?
The capital letters of PROTECT are mine. More and more, #tourism is not a blessing, but a punishment.

Evil greed. If you are a family and are bound to school vacation dates, greedy landlords try to extract the hell out of your pocket.
You pay between 2.5-4 times the rent for the same apartment during holiday season.
This chart is now publicly visible for everyone on many tourism websites. I hope it will have an impact. For me it already does - I rather stay home than pump my money into some greedy mf’s ass.
What do you think how long it will take until I have to remove this chart out of protest by the landlords?

French government launches new strategy to deal with 'over-tourism'
Finding a long-term place to live at a normal price seems to be #MissionImpossible in #Split, and I'm becoming increasingly frustrated. #Tourism, #gentrification, and short-term rentals made sure that this city is becoming more unlivable every year and it's turning into a #scenography for tourists. It breaks my heart to say this because this is where I grew up, I love this city, but the future doesn't look good.
Tourism will destroy #Mediterranean.
La Sambuy, a town which runs a family skiing destination near Mont Blanc in the French Alps, has decided to dismantle its ski lifts because global warming has shrunk its ski season to just a few weeks, meaning it’s no longer profitable to keep them open.
Could the stranded assets of the forestry industry be recycled?
We've done Victoria
"By the end of this year, native forest logging will cease in Victoria. After more than 50 years of clearfelling and other destructive logging practices. The supply of sawlogs in Victoria was close to being exhausted, and the state’s logging industry had long been financially unviable."
Now for NSW
Logging 95 % of the Great Koala National Park
In Victoria "the harvesters and their machinery were left sitting idle after the government fast-forwarded its intended 2030 phase out of native forest timber harvesting to January 1, 2024 after a court decision last November locked the workers out of the state’s native forests...25 of the state’s 27 harvest and haulage crews have been on VicForests stand-down payments since last year’s Supreme Court decision."

After initial pleas for people to avoid visiting Maui, Hawaiian tourism officials are now encouraging vacationers and sightseers to come again. While the area affected by wildfires is still off-limits, local businesses spared from the disaster say they have seen a steep decline in customers and worry for the economic future of the community. Hotels and airlines are offering discounted rates to lure wary tourists back to the island.
Venice to start charging visitors entry fee next year (Reuters).
"Venice plans to experiment with an admission fee of 5 euros($5.35) for day trippers next year to try to manage the flow of tourists drawn to its historic canals, the city council said on Tuesday.
The fee will be applied on a trial basis on 30 days next year, focusing mainly on spring bank holidays and summer weekends when tourism numbers are at their peak. All visitors over the age of 14 will have to pay it.
The aim was to find "a new balance between the rights of those who live, study or work in Venice and those who visit the city," Venice tourism councillor Simone Venturini said."
Anyone here think that this is going to work??

As the Hawaiian island starts its recovery from the Lahaina fire, it relies even more heavily on out-of-state visitors than its neighbors
Many now flock to natural places for the best selfie background
"Trampling plants, damaging rock art, risking your life: taking selfies in nature has a cost."
"Someone goes swimming, puts it on social media and suddenly there’s 100 people a day coming to go wild swimming where the platypus and the glow-worms live. And in a wet year, suddenly all the vegetation around the rock pool is trampled, it turns into a muddy mess."
