Rome mayor mulling more pedestrian-only zones

Circus Maximus, Palatine Hill next on Marino's list

(ANSA) - Rome, October 20 - Rome Mayor Ignazio Marino said Monday he might make the Circus Maximus and the Palatine hill pedestrian-only. The mayor spoke hours after an extended ban on cars, trucks and scooters in more streets in Rome's historic centre took effect. The ban extends a pedestrian zone put in place in August affecting 15 small streets around the Spanish Steps. The city last year strictly limited traffic along the Via dei Fori Imperiali, connecting the iconic Colosseum with Piazza Venezia and running through the Roman Forum.
