Rome bans sleeping and singing on street
Many young travellers have enjoyed eating and sleeping on the streets of Rome but that is all now going to stop - and please don't sing! Doing any of these things will now bring a hefty fine as Rome brings in laws to clean up its streets and piazzas.
The Italian capital has become the latest city - following on from Venice, Florence and Verona - to bring in public behaviour laws in a bid to keep streets tidy.
Under the new city council ordinances sleeping outdoors, bivouacking in a public space and eating and drinking, as well as singing have all been banned.
However accordion and violin players who serenade diners at Rome's many open air restaurants are exempt - providing they have a licence - while anyone who breaches the new laws will be hit with a fine of up to 300 euro (£240) fine.
