Most cities in Italy now impose local taxes, known as the tasso di soggiorno, on visitors staying overnight. 

Costs vary depending on the city and the level of accommodation.  The ‘tax’ is paid in person when checking out, either in cash or by card, and you should receive a separate receipt for this payment.

Here are the cost per night in some of Italy’s most popular destinations:
