Rome Introduces Strict Rules For Tourists

If you're off to Rome this summer you won't be allowed to pull your wheely suitcase down historic staircases.

The Italian city has introduced some strict rules for tourists.

The city has introduced a long list of rules including banning people from singing on public transport, eating near monuments and letting your lips touch the spout of public water fountains.

Attaching padlocks to bridges, walking around topless and ticket touts are also banned.

Some offenders will get off with a warning, others could be fined or banned from the area where the offence took place.

Independent councillor Mannix Flynn says Dublin needs some rules of its own as the streets are very busy with tourists adding that bus tours in the city often disturb residents.

He thinks it's time Dublin City Council, the tour operators, Failte Ireland and Discover Ireland sit down together to grow tourism in a responsible way.
