Sightseeing in Rome

There are many exciting places to see and things to do in Rome. Explore the sites and activities here


Electricity in Italy complies to the European standard rules, so wall sockets have 220 to 240 volts alternating at 50 cycles per second output. If your gadget or appliance is not dual voltage and requires a different voltage then you'll need a power converter (or transformer) to convert to 220 to 240 volts. Italy has 3 main socket types: Type C, Type L, and Type F (aka Schuko plug).


The currency is Euro. ATMs are readily accessible and credit cards are widely accepted. 


Tipping is not obligatory in Italy, however, a tip for exceptional service is always appreciated.
