The City tax or the Tourist tax is a local tax which exists in each city and has been introduced to travelers in Italy from 2011.
As you may know, it is applied to all types of accommodations as hotels, hostels, camping, B&B, agritourism, apartments or residences located in towns or on the countryside. However, the cost of tourist tax is different and vary according to the accommodation’s star rating. For instance, in a hostel you will pay less than in 4-5-star hotels. Also, since many apartments in Rome are rented not officially, their owners won’t collect this tax. Children under age of 10 are exempt from the tax. Moreover, the tax is payable for a maximum of 10 nights (5 nights in some accommodation kinds).
