"A trip to the already pricey city of Venice, Italy, will now leave your wallet even emptier than before. Venetian officials have announced plans to charge day visitors up to $11 (€10) to enter."

"Over the busy May Day weekend, the local government restricted the movement of visitors and implemented moves to separate the tourists and locals wandering the city center."

Maybe we should start charging Italian visitors a fee to visit US ports?
