 Snacking Tourists in Rome to be Fined

Rome has issued a law prohibiting tourists from snacking at monuments of historical importance. Snacking tourists will have to pay a fine of up to 629 dollars at sites such as the Pantheon, the Piazza Navona and the Colosseum.

"It is forbidden to encamp or erect makeshift shelters and stop to eat or drink in zones which have a particular historic or architectural value," the ordinance adopted by Rome city council read.

According to news.com.au, the law was designed to protect the historic moments and follows similar bans in Venice, Florence and Bologna.

But for many residents the rule is also about teaching tourists respect.

"This is a way to re-educate people about how to behave in this city. We've let standards fall," Rome resident Viviana Di Capua said.

"At the moment people can do anything they like in this city. We need to restore respect. It's just a first step - a lot more needs to be done," Capua added.
