Transport System in Rome
Taxis in Rome are always white and with visible taxi badges, they can take special lanes and speed up your trip. Credit Cards are often accepted but we recommend you to ask the taxi driver in advance. Several apps can be used to order a taxi in Rome (FreeNow, ItTaxi, AppTaxi) and you can pay with cash or credit card. Hotel staff can call a taxi for you or you can dial 060609 or 063570.

For your information, the nearest metro station (CORNELIA station – A Line) is 2 km from the hotel. Rome’s underground network is not extensive but, once you reach the city center some of the sights are in walking distance. The Hotel also provides a scheduled shuttle service to locations of interest in the city center.
Rome is generally a safe city, although walking alone in the areas around the main train stations at night should be avoided. Please be aware that pickpockets are often active on buses and underground and in general in crowded places. Some general rules:
• Whenever you need to open your wallet in public, avoid exposing big cash notes
• Do not place your wallet or your phone in the back pockets of your pants, especially in places that are very busy and full

Insurance, Currency and Credit Card
Delegates are encouraged to purchase travel insurance before leaving their home country. Insurance plans typically cover accidental loss of belongings, medical costs, and other risks of international travels.
The currency used in Italy is the euro. One euro is divided up into 100 euro-cents. There are eight different coins (1, 2, 5, 10, 20 and 50 eurocents) and seven notes (5, 10, 20, 50, 100, 200 and 500 euros).
As well as in cash, purchases can be paid for using the most common credit cards. This payment system is common in Italian shops, which generally display the symbols of the credit cards they accept on the outside door. If you pay by credit card you will be asked to show an identity document. Travelers cheques (in USD or Euros) can also be cashed in Italian banks.
Tips are not compulsory and in Italy there are no generally established rules, although it is common practice to leave a sum amounting to around 10% of the bill if you are satisfied with the service you have received.
Italy is in the Central European Time (CET) Zone, 1 hour ahead of Greenwich Mean Time (GMT), and observes Daylight Saving Time.
