Just shocked today to find out that the American Express Travel Office on Via Dante Alghieri has been closed! I can't imagine the last time there wasn't an Amex office in this town -

I guess this happened recently but the place is empty. Couple that with the lone Citibank branch closing, and it just keeps getting harder and harder to get money here (for us, anyway). I suppose this was simple cost cutting on their part - how much can be made from cashing travelers checks, giving cash advances and selling train tickets? Not enough I guess to keep a whole office and staff going. They did have travel agents there too but that part of the business always seemed dead.
