The Italian city of Venice is soon to start charging fine up to €500 (Rs 42511.36) for sitting in random, undesignated spots. So, those who are planning to visit Venice might have to keep some extra amount in mind.
The new plan to implement fine was proposed by Luigi Brugnaro, city’s mayor. It will be voted on by the city council in October
When it comes to tourism, Venice has always been stern about its city’s rules. Already, people were restricted from sitting in tourist spots including St Mark’s Square or the Rialto Bridge, pausing on bridges, walking around in swimwear and feeding pigeons. These prohibitions are in addition to other bans such as littering, graffiti and placing padlocks on monuments.
Venice is one of the world’s most popular tourist destinations which is situated across a group of 118 small islands.
