We have always used Euros in Europe. That is their system of currency. It would be the same if we went to the U.S. and tried to use Aussie dollars! Yes some of the drivers will take U.S. dollars but as the dollar is low against the Euro at the moment they seem to prefer euros now.

Same thing in Rome..there were 10 of us, so it was only 70 Euros each (or close) each for the same sights + his own personal touch (like serenading us with his concertina while we had lunch at a local place) and the ship's tour of the same areas was $345 each!
If I knew I was going on a particular date, I would book him right now.
Hope this helps.
