Traveling to Rome or precisely to Italy is part of the dream that is expected by most tourists around the world, the country associated with various historical relics on a great historical tour.
It is a joy of tourists after arriving there, say in Rome, the happiness of enjoying various tourist attractions as well as the local culinary offer that is able to tempt and on the other hand gives a bad impact.
One of the interesting things is the habits of tourists to enjoy snacks, drink ice cream, eating excellent pizza while taking pictures of selfie, or anything else that leads to the garbage around it.
Apparently getting the attention of the Mayor Virginia Raggi, quoting an article on the sites CNN Indonesia, today, of course this bad habit should be discarded, the Mayor set new rules that related to the rules of 'eat and drink' by the tourists who come to the attraction in the Italian capital.
It does not take long, quoting the sites The Local on Tuesday, June 13, the city government of Rome set the rules as a trial until October, which prohibits tourists from eating food and drink at around 15 fountains which are historical attractions.
This immediately has an impact, the new rule aims to anticipate "incidents that can lead to violation of propriety while protecting the historic attractions of Rome".
Imagine that one day in Rome you will not be able to eat your favorite gelato, pasta or pizza while sitting nicely around the historic fountain.
Even further, the city government's seriousness to forbid tourists to climb, swim to bathe the pet in the fountain.
Other things are still permitted, such as throwing coins at the bottom of the fountain pool, which has been considered a ritual of expecting good luck.
Of course, you should pay attention to this, unless you can afford to pay a fine of around USD 45 - 264, when caught by the city superintendent.
This policy is good to be applied in various other tourist attractions, not just in Rome.
