Don’t sit down.

It seems the city government of Rome no longer wants people plunking themselves down on the Spanish Steps. This week, it announced that the historic steps are not to be used by the public as seats, though for generations they have attracted those looking to rest, have a nibble, or sip a cold drink.

If you do sit on the steps, you’ll likely hear a whistle blow twice in your direction. That’s the police reminding to you to move on.

No worries. There are much better—and more fitting—places all over this great city to grab a seat, get off your feet, and enjoy great views and people-watching.
