In 2011 the Italian government has decided that all Italian regions and local authorities can introduce a tourist tax, which should be paid on arrival directly to the holiday homes and hotels. The tourist tax is a personal tax that is calculated based on the number of nights that one is staying in the region as well as the standard of the holiday home or hotel. The government has not set a deadline for the introduction of the tourist tax, nor has a specific amount been settled. The amount of the tax is decided by the different authorities and can change from day to day. Normally you will only pay for the first 10 nights, but this can change as well. Unfortunately it is not possible for In-Italia to update this information for all our holiday homes and hotels.
