This week we discuss the new strict laws that have recently been signed into law by Rome’s mayor, Virginia Raggi. Feel like enjoying a gelato on the Spanish Steps à la Audrey Hepburn in Roman Holiday? Think twice! Want to climb on the back of one of the lion statues in Piazza del Popolo to snap that perfect Instagram-worthy shot? Better not. Tempted to strip off and dive into the Trevi Fountain? Only do it if you’re willing to pay a hefty fine and risk being exiled from Rome!
Maybe you’re thinking, “But Rome wouldn’t be Rome without an impromptu picnic on the steps of a monument?” Or perhaps your thoughts run more along the lines of: “About time this city started to be treated with respect!”
Whichever is your view, tune in to this week’s episode to hear our take.
