I agree with the tourist tax in principle when it’s used to help maintain areas that ‘suffer’ or deteriorate because of tourism or to improve the quality in tourist areas for the benefit of tourists, but that is certainly not the case here.

The Catholic Church in Rome should be paying for the upkeep and restoration of these relics! Tourist Tax should not be used for a Religious Relics!

Think it’s wrong to tax the tourist to view the islands treasures, You pay enough towards your holiday without this extra tax as well. You don’t get slapped with a tax if you enter the UK, sadly for me this will be the last time I will visit the island. Sad really.
