If you have any doubts, contact us and we'll try to find information on the arrangements with your country and the documents you need. First aid ("Pronto Soccorso") at public hospitals is subject to a fixed fee ("ticket") of 25.00 euros for minor illnesses that don't need immediate treatment (white triage code).
