When the tourist tax came in to effect in 2011, tourists paid between 1 and 3 euros per person/night, depending on the category of the establishment.

From the 1st of September, tourists visiting Rome must pay the following fees:

€3 per person/night in 1* and 2* hotels.

€4 per person/night in 3* hotels.

€6 per person/night in 4* hotels.

€7 per person/night in 5* hotels.

These amounts will be added to a maximum of 10 nights. Tourist taxes in Rome are paid when the customer leaves the hotel. They then receive a receipt of the fees.

Citizens of Rome and children under the age of 10 don’t need to pay these fees.
