Venice To Ban Loudspeakers: Limit Tourist Groups To 25 People

Venice To Ban Loudspeakers: Limit Tourist Groups To 25 People
Jan 1 2024 Share

Starting from June, Venice is implementing measures to alleviate the impact of mass tourism, including banning loudspeakers and limiting tourist groups to 25 people. 

The ban on loudspeakers is aimed at preventing confusion and disturbances caused by their use. With over-tourism recognised as a pressing issue in this popular European destination, these regulations aim to enhance the management of organised groups in the historic centre.

Venice, covering only 7.6 sq km, hosted almost 13 million tourists in 2019, a number expected to surpass pre-pandemic levels. 

As more residents leave due to concerns about overwhelming tourism, citizen associations have been monitoring available beds, revealing an imbalance favouring tourists. UNESCO experts, in July, suggested adding Venice to the list of world heritage sites in danger due to climate change and mass tourism, blaming Italian authorities for a lack of strategic vision. 

Although not added to the list, the debate prompted measures such as banning large cruise ships from the historic centre in 2021. Italian Culture Minister Gennaro Sangiuliano highlighted efforts, including anti-flooding systems and tourist entry fees, acknowledging UNESCO’s recognition of attempts to address Venice’s challenges.
