Sitting on Rome’s famous Spanish Steps is no longer allowed as the local police have decided to apply the rules in a more stringent way.

The famous steps are also considering a monument, meaning sitting or lying on them is banned.

Those who breach the ban risk a fine of 250 euros, which can go up to 400 euros if the steps are dirtied or damaged.

Rome’s authorities have recently been introducing a series of measures to try and control the effects on mass tourism on the Italian capital city with ever more stringent measures being introduced.
