Nearly 4,000 Rome holiday lodgings 'irregular'

Censis says tax loss to city totals around 40 mn euros

(ANSA) - Rome, July 21 - There are nearly 4,000 "irregular" tourist lodgings currently on offer in the Eternal City, making up a total of about 36,000 beds, with unregulated or "under the table" structures totaling about 75% of those, said Censis on Tuesday.
    The think tank said the city government loses around 40 million euros annually due to the phenomenon.
    Censis conducted the study, called "Rome Towards the Jubilee," in light of the special Jubilee year announced by Pope Francis, which will begin in December and is expected to attract up to 33 million tourists and religious pilgrims to Rome.
