A number of websites relating to Rome museums, tourism and cultural services promoted by the Italian capital remain offline following a cyber attack on Monday.

Hackers targeted sites and apps operated by Zètema, on behalf of the city, and work is underway to restore services as quickly as possible, Zètema Progetto Cultura said in a statement.

The sites still down on Tuesday included Musei in Comune and the individual websites of city-run museums, Turismo Roma, Roma Pass, Culture Roma, MIC Card, 060608 and Sovrintendenza Roma.
