Italian Money is called the "Lira" -- oops! I haven't been to Italy in a few years. Italian money is now called the Euro, and it's used by most of western Europe. I guess my Lira are collectors items now.
Capitolo is such a small town, I don't remember too many banks or money exchanges (if any). I recall the front desk clerks exchanging money for us if we needed it. Credit cards are accepted by most restaurants, hotels, and other businesses.
