Snacking banned at monuments in Rome

People caught snacking near monuments will have to pay a £40 fineRome City Hall has banned snacking near its famous monuments in the city”s historical centre, according to reports.

A £40 fine will be slapped on those who violate the ban which runs until the end of October, the Associated Press said.

Officials told the news agency they want to preserve artistic treasures and decorum in a city that has millions of visitors every year.

The ordinance also bans the homeless from making makeshift beds and people loitering around at night, as they are “often drunk [and] not only leave all manner of litter on public grounds and in the fountains, but also disturb the peace”.

Rome is the latest Italian city to take steps to protect its historical sites.

Venice banned picnics in public places and bare torsos in St. Mark”s Square, while Florence is clamping down on men who wash the windshields of cars for payment.
