Carabinieri Website Navigation Tips

While updating it has become apparent that the new updated version of this website is far from perfect. The main issue is the addresses. Take the Police Station / Carabinieri in the Campo de'Fiori for example. The address is officially “Piazza della Trinità dei Pellegrini” BUT when you type in the address they will only accept “Piazza Capo Di Ferro”.  Why.? No idea.

The way we solved the problem was to mix up the details. We put the word "Piazza" in front of Via Capo di Ferro. Why did we use Via Capo di Ferro? It is the street across from the station. See what we mean about being creative? So frustrating & confusing!
Therefore, if you are in a city that we have not covered, you will need to mix it up a bit with addresses if you want to find out further details regarding hours of operation ,email addresses etc.
To make life easier follow the pictures below:
                                                       Homepage                                                          Click "Dove Siamo"


                            Basically the first question "Are you looking for a Police Station & the next option is how many in the area
                                                                      We choose 15,when finished click " Avanti"


                               The next question "What city" If its not in the drop down list you cannot proceed.
                               The next asked for the  address,as you can see,the correct address did not show a drop down list!



 Incorrect address,But a drop down list is revealed! Next add the postcode,then click " Avanti"

                                   If everything goes to plan (LOL) this map should show up .Click the hat for details.The following map (from                                               our website)shows details of how they mixed the street names up !
Remember: We do the boring stuff so you don't have to!
