there are some family discounts for some of the Civic museums like the Doge's Palace, if you buy one ticket at full price, there rest are at a reduced rate. Here's the link: …visitmuve.it/en/…. It doesn't say that the children/students must be EU citizens. The family tickets seem like the best deal.
However, the Accademia would be full price, which clearly lists that reduced tickets are for EU citizens.
I did find this website which had the announcement regarding the changed admission policy and a way to search by region
Didn't find anything for Venice but the above website did have the official press release which they recommend you print out to show. Who knows?
If this is correct, then the Accademia, Correr and Palazzo Ducale would be included http://www.beniculturali.it/mibac/opencms/MiBAC/sito-MiBAC/MenuPrincipale/LuoghiDellaCultura/Ricerca/index.html?Nome=&Proprieta=&Tipologia=&action=do&luogo=Veneto|VE|Venezia&page=0
I didn't look at all the pages, it is there.
Your persistance has paid off! They are free for children and the websites don't reflect those changes.
This will be a great help for many.
Since the Palazzo Ducale has child rate tickets for everyone and a family ticket deal, will they be going to free tickets for children. If not, I can buy the family ticket on site, correct.
Would you update your post when you purchase your tickets and let us know if you did pay the children
I am trying to book tickets for Doges Palace for two adults and two children. Site is still asking for a fee for children so I'm unsure now what to do. I'd rather not pay for the children if we don't have to but how can we reserve tickets??
The site is asking the fee for the advance booking: it's the "cost" you have to pay to skip the line (adult or child).
We won't be there until the end September, and may wait to buy until we get there. Hopefully someone will have bought theres before then and can update the info.
Just to point out the 50 cent fee per ticket is not the issue, it is the 8 euro ticket price for those kids that are 6+
