New system for Venice tourists to prevent overcrowding

Venice will be forcing tourists to pre-book their visit via an app before they set foot inside the city and use other means to prevent overcrowding.

Airport-like turnstiles are being tested to control the flow of people, who could have to pay a day trip charge of up to 16 dollars.

Authorities will also track everyone entering the city using a network of 468 cameras to combat over-tourism.

The system aims to place a physical limit on the number of people who can be in the city at any one time, but locals are concerned the new system could decimate the tourism industry.
