When in Rome - Nicki Betters

When in Rome

Tourists shouldn’t be eating while sitting on the steps of monuments or churches. It’s not about decorum, as the article suggests. It’s about preserving both the monuments and the culture. During my last visit to Rome, I was disgusted by the amount of food litter everywhere. Beyond that, the old saying holds true. Italians don’t sit on the Spanish Steps and eat and tourist should respect those kinds of customs.
