Gratuity TipsService charges are included in your restaurant bill, so you are not expected to tip. It is common practice, however, to leave a small amount. In bars, Italians will usually leave any small change as a tip, but this is by no means obligatory. Tipping taxi drivers is not common practice, but your hotel porter will expect a little something.
Banks, Credit Cards, ATMsAccess/Mastercard, Diners Club, and Visa are widely accepted. Check with your credit card company for merchant acceptability and other facilities which may be available.

Rome means history. There's layers of the stuff - Etruscan tombs, Republican meeting rooms, Imperial temples, early Christian churches, medieval bell towers, Renaissance palaces and baroque basilicas. In this city a phenomenal concentration of history, legend and monuments coexists with an equally phenomenal concentration of people busily going about their everyday life.
