The Rome City Council introduced a ban of eating any snacks in the Rome’s historical centre.
So the most popular places to visit will be off-limits for street snackers.
The ban is also extended to drink or to encamp or erect makeshift shelters — in zones which have a particular historic or architectural value.
Those not complying with the law are liable to a fine of between €25 and €500.
Some other art cities in Italy, such as Florence, Bologna and Venice have already taken such measures to protect popular tourist spots in the city.
In Venice, for example, people were already prohibited from eating snacks in the hugely popular St. Mark’s Square.
