Pharmacies Rome

What it says exactly about the country I don’t know, but someone once told me that, except for lawyers, pharmacies take up most of the pages of Italian versions of the Yellow Pages. The Italian word for “pharmacy” is farmacia.

Pharmacies Rome

General information

Pharmacies in Rome (and the rest of Italy) are easily identified by a green cross. Opening hours are usually from 8:30 am to 8 pm, although often with a long lunch break. Pharmacies outside the center sometimes close as early as 1:30 pm.

There is a rotating night service where one pays a surcharge on medicines purchased. Some pharmacies are open 24 hours a day. At these there is no surcharge.

At every pharmacy, there ought to be a list outside with the other pharmacies in the district. This list can also be found in the Rome newspapers every day.

Note that pharmacies are not allowed, and will not, sell antibiotics without a prescription.

Pharmacies Open at Night

If you would like to know which pharmacies are open at night or during the weekend please call (+39) 06228941. This number can also be used when you urgently need medication for elderly or disabled people.

Pharmacies open at night usually do not allow entry, but whatever it is you need must be ordered through a window.
