Don’t Make This Mistake in Venice


The city council in Venice, Italy has introduced a law that can result in fines of €100 to €500 for dragging wheeled luggage or baggage across the city’s cobblestone streets or walkways. The law was enacted to address two issues: noise pollution—those plastic wheels make an awful racket—and serious damage to the city’s walkways, bridges and marble stairways. So, if you visit la Serennissima, be prepared to heft that luggage.

Update: The city government has already backtracked on this legislation. They now say that will only apply to commercial wheeled cart and luggage trolleys.
