Banks in Rome
banks everywhere in Rome and almost daily you can see a new one. Tourists can't be afraid of being without money. Normal business hours are 8.45am to 1.30pm
and 2.45pm to 4.00 Monday to Friday; some of them have longer hours
on Thursdays and are also open Saturday mornings.
Banks can change
cash and travellers' cheques, with a commission of à6,000 ( euro
3,09 ) to à10,000 ( euro 5,16 ).
Automatic Teller Machines
Most of the banks
in the city have 24-hours automatic telller machines. Cards with the
Cirrus symbol are accepted almost anywhere, but you may have to look
a little harder to find a machine that takes the Star symbol.
The following are just a few suggestions:
- Terminal Area
: Banca Nazionale del Lavoro ( BNL ), Via Marsala corner with
Via Solferino - Banca di Roma, Via Gioberti.
- Spanish Steps : Deutsche Bank,
Largo Tritone 161. If you have a problem with your Visa or
MasterCard, come directly here as it is the main branch for these
: Banca Nazionale del Lavoro, Piazza Risorgimento 27 - Monte dei
Paschi di Siena ( Visa, MC, Cirrus, EC ) Via Cola di Rienzo 240
The exchange rate
at the ATMs is very good, so the only extra fee you'll pay is
whatever your bank at home charges for international withdrawals.
- Parioli : Monte Dei Paschi di Siena, Viale Parioli, 142
- Via del Corso : Banca Intesa, Piazza Montecitorio, 115
