Rome Currency Guide
The currency used in Rome is the Euro.
Rome has a wide range of ATMs located conveniently throughout the city. If you plan on withdrawing money during your holiday, be sure to tell your bank your travel dates before you go. Also keep in mind that international ATM withdrawal fees for Australian cards can be expensive, so you may also want to consider checking how much your bank will charge you.
Before travelling to Rome, be sure to exchange some of your Australian Dollars into Euros to bring with you. This can be done at a range of currency exchange outlets including Travel Money Oz, which do not charge fees or commissions.
In addition to cash, it's also a good idea to bring a credit card with you while travelling. If you don't have a credit card you may want to consider purchasing a pre-paid travel money card. A Cash Passport is a nifty piece of plastic that allows you to load your money in the form of Euros onto the card, which you can then access at various ATMS and also use wherever MasterCard is accepted.
