Useful information for your stay - currency - language - electric supply

In Italy the currency is Euro from January 1, 2002. In some shops you will still find the price in liras with the change in euro. The coins of euro are 1, 2, 5, 10, 20, 50 cents, 1, 2 euros. The notes are 5, 10, 50, 100, 200, 500 €. Shops accept all notes but we suggest that you avoid to use 200 and 500 € notes. Most of the shops accept all kinds of credit cards.

The native language is Italian but at the hotel our staff speaks fluently French, English, German and Spanish.

Electric supply
In Italy supply is 220 v.
