Rome City Tax

Does every visitor to Rome have to pay this 2-3 Euro daily tax ? Does it apply to stays in an apartment or only hotels ?

Since many apartments in Rome are being rented under the table, some apartment owners won't collect this tax. However, I would avoid this kind of apartment, because they often have safety issues.

Children under age 10 are exempt from the tax, and there is a maximum number of nights you have to pay it, which I don't remember, but it's more than a week.

The tax is payable for a maximum of 10 nights (5 nights in some accommodation types), as per the information in the link I gave earlier.

How far out of the city area to you have to stay to avoid this tax? Is the area next to the Vatican taxed? I don't know the name but it is on the other side of a river.

You have to stay outside the area administered by the City of Rome, which extends a long way. You will not get out of it by staying in Trastevere.

>>How do they have safety issues?<<

Unregistered rental apartments are not subject to inspection to ensure that they meet the requirements for fire safety.

Also, people who are willing to break the law and evade taxes are usually people who aren't overly burdened by scruples about your safety.

@6, it sounds as if your piggy-back post is referring to the Prati n'hood. As pointed out, you would have to stay much, much farther away to avoid a couple of extra euros per day.
