Safety during your stay in Rome, and in meeting and touristic places:
ncient ruins are everywhere; public toilets are not. You'll become expert in instantly sensing the location of facilities in restaurants you're not eating in! It's never been a problem for us. Onerous, perhaps at times, but turn it into a game!
heck our Visiting Hours page for a lisiting of the more important sights.
dmissions are generally inexpensive in Rome. ($5-10) Many churches ask for a 'donation'; 500-2000 lire is adequate.
few express (probably ill-informed) concern about the water, but Ed's had only one problem in 30 years of visits and probably brought the bug with him. While we usually drink bottled water at meals as a matter of taste, we drink lots of tap water in the room.
English is understood and spoken moderately well in tourist areas in Rome and major cities. Many waiters can give at least a sketchy description of selections in English. (Unfortunately this means that sometimes beef, pork, and veal may all be translated to "meat".)
However, more than in Northern Europe, you'll find a few words of the local language useful. The more off the beaten track, the more inexpensive the restaurant, hotel or shop, the more at least a little Italian will be helpful.
Visa and MasterCard are widely honored. (MasterCard is accepted at shops displaying the EuroCard symbol.) AMEX (and Diner's Club) are honored in many hotels, restaurants and shops. You will find some hotels do not take (any) credit cards. Verify before you go, certainly before you check out.
Widely available. In major cities often inside bank foyers. While bank patrons' cards may unlock the door outside business hours, yours probably will not. Best to get cash during the day.
