Tourists have been banned from sitting on Rome’s famous Spanish Steps

You can walk and walk, famous Spanish festivals in Spain you want but don’t try to sit down for a long time because the police whistle and threaten to be fined.

Local authorities have begun to impose new bans on this place, which is loved by strangers and was immortalized in 1953 by the romantic romance of Gregory Peck and Audrey Hepburn.

They say that most people sit for too long, stop the traffic of others, and even skip lunch from their community.

Not everyone is satisfied with the attempt to restore order that began this week.

“I think it’s stupid, stupid,” said Attle, an American immigrant from Seattle, who watched the police whistling to move others.

“You rest on the stone for a while, then continue,” he said on Thursday.

Vittorio Sgarbi is one of the most famous artists in Italy, calling it a “fascist.”

The cost of disobeying the police ranges from 160 euros to 400 euros (180-450 dollars). So far, no signature has been signed to warn visitors of the ban and let the police watch the whistle.

Federico Guerrinoni, an Italian tourist from northern Italy, said he agreed with the proposal.

“I know this will hurt some people, but you can see it like this,” he said. “There are a lot of people who don’t respect these monuments. So a little safety is not hurt,” he said.

In 1726, 135 steps were built, connecting the square below it to the Holy Trinity Church on the top of Mount Pincio.

The Italian is known as “La Scalinata (Staircase) diTrinità deiMonti”, which is the church’s discourse to the North. English is called the Spanish step because the Spanish Ambassador to the Vatican is in their place.
