Venice, Italy is moving forward with plans to make visitors use a booking system and pay an entry fee into the city.
Officials say the measure is designed to control the number of tourists.
For several years, Venice has struggled with “over-tourism” and large crowds causing congestion in the city’s narrow streets and waterways.
The new restrictions, set to start next summer, will require visitors to book in advance, pay a fee, and enter the city via electronic turnstiles.

The entry fee will vary depending on the season.
Do you think other cities should implement something similar? How much would you be willing to pay just to enter the city of Venice?
