    After banning kebab shops and introducing plans to restrict access to Piazza San marco the city has approved plans to ban new hotels from opening in La Serenissima.

    The Ban prevents converting buildings into tourist accommodations whether hotels or B&Bs or making extensions to the already existing ones.

    The plans are not expected to cover the islands beyond the city center places such as Giudecca , The Lido and as yet unconverted private islands will be the only way forward for new hotels to open. The ruling does not include private rentals such as Airbnb.
