Tourist coaches to remain out of central Rome from January 2019.Rome's city council has banned tourist buses from entering the historic centre of the capital after receiving approval for the plan from the Lazio regional administrative tribunal (TAR) and Italy's council of state, the legal-administrative consultative body that ensures the legality of public administration.
Rome's mayor Virginia Raggi, of the populist Movimento 5 Stelle, claimed the legislation was a "victory for citizens" and an "important decision to protect our archaeological heritage and the environment." Raggi said that coaches would be provided with new waiting areas, outside the centre, once the legislation takes effect in January 2019.
The move was not welcomed however by the tourism and transport industries who claimed the measures would damage the city's overnight group travel sector.
