The local government of Greve in Chianti has introduced a tourist tax based on overnight stays and the type of accommodation. The tax is applicable starting 1 April 2012 and applies March through October every year. Probably this tax will not (yet) be incorporated into the prices most places are displaying. Apparently they have to give a separate receipt for this tax. Some examples:
- Rooms in the sense of rooms rented in houses or B&Bs - 1 euro per person per night for the first 4 nights in any given accommodation.
- Apartments and agriturismi - 1.5 euros per person per night for the first 7 nights in any given accommodation.
- Hotels: the rate varies by number of starts from 50 cents to 4 euros per person per night for the first 4 nights.
Children under 14 years old don't pay.
Knowing the comune of Greve as well as I do, I think it likely that details of this tax will change from time to time.Edited: 10:47 am, April 01, 2012
