Rome Hotels Furious Over Tax On Tourists

Visitors to Rome now have to pay an extra tax to stay at hotels in the Italian capital. Critics say the new tax, of up to $4 per night depending on the class of hotel, will dissuade tourists from coming to Rome. Cash-strapped local officials say the tax will boost city funds by more than 100 million dollars per year.
