After all, getting caught in the act of classic tourist mistakes is very annoying and shameful.
Tourists would need to be heedful about the way they drink water from the city’s public drinking fountains. Authorities have ordered it’s not satisfactory for thirsty tourists to let their mouth touch the metal spout; instead they can cup their hands under the spout and drink water.
No Performance on Public Transport
Another ruling decree is that singing or playing instrument on public transport in the city is banned.
People no longer would be allowed to take prams or wheeled suitcases up and down the historic steps, like Spanish Steps,
New Rules to Be Enforced
Although it’s not clear how the new rules would be enforced or what fines might be charged if people are caught breaking it. However, as per news, it has been declared that police would be patrolling the historic sites. Tourists might be temporarily banned from visiting the place in case they misbehave.
