Guests of hotels in Rome will pay a special tax for staying in this city

News According to the law issued by the town council of Rome, all tourists who arrive in this city will pay a tax for staying in the capital of Italy. The money paid in the form of the tax will be charged as a pay for using the town’s utilities.

New law becomes valid starting from the 1st of January, 2011. All tourists who stay in hotels in Rome will need to pay the new tax. The tax is charged on a per night basis and estimates 2 Euro for a person in case the traveler stays in Rome for less than 10 nights. Visitors of 4 and 5 star hotels will pay an increased amount of the tax – 3 Euro a night from 1 person.

Tourists should keep in mind that people who have made a reservation through a travel agency are also eligible for paying this tax. As the tax is taken by the city and not by the hotel, people, who stay in hotel for free (for example, guides or tourist bus drivers), will also need to pay it. Only hostel visitors and children below 2 can stay in Rome for free.

Currently the law is yet in the process of development and approval, so minor changes can be added to its text.
