Its a mystery...the new public toilets in Rome
AKA: What the hell is going on!!!!!!
Back in August 2015,the Pope announced the Jubilee Year & the Comune di Roma announced public
works.Thankfully these included the complete renovation of most of the public toilets through out the city, both free standing & automatic.Unsurpisingly they have yet to materialize.Check out Rome Toilets Overview for the full pre story.
The new toilets were originally set to open in early December......the next date was Easter.Now I do hope I have jumped the gun & can delete this story within the next couple of days.........but experience & a strained conversation with someone in the comune "What new toilets ?" have left me wondering, why did they closed all the toilets with no plan B?
With this in mind if you are travelling to Rome you will be pleased to know that within the Vatican you have your choice of clean & well maintained toilets Map of Vatican Toilets
For the rest of Rome our maps include other alternatives
I did find a map from 2014 that has the location of portable toilets that are in place for extra special events in the Vatican Area
There are still some public toilets in place.The one outside the Coliseum is still there.As far as I know they will be renovated shortly & will include ticket office ec etc.In the Galleria Sordi you will find a toilet,but these are all few & far between
So when you are grumbling about the lack of toilets in Rome just remember the Romans are just as annoyed about this situation. Read any newspaper or any local blog.Lets cross fingers & hope that I can delete this page shortly.Check out our Twitter page for any quick updates or our website for maps
