Riomaggiore is one of five popular towns that are part of the Cinque Terre Natural Park. The popularity of this place unfortunately brings him a lot of damage. Piston and chaos on the streets negatively affect the comfort and quality of life of residents. The mayor of the city, Fabrizia Pecunia, decided to introduce restrictions for tourists.
According to her recommendations, the Riomaggiore Civil Defense regulations have been supplemented with procedures to be applied in the situation of too many tourists. An alarm will then be announced, as in the case of a natural disaster. The new regulations oblige local railways to provide the city authorities with information on the number of passengers who travel towards the city. If there are too many tourists, City Guard is obliged to keep them at the station and not let them enter the town.
This idea did not appeal to railway employees because they are afraid that this will affect the quality of their work. Recently, mountain rescuers in the Cinque Terre park also had problems with tourists. The services were massively called to the vacationers walking in the mountains in flip-flops. The problem was solved when penalties were introduced for walking in bad shoes. An inexperienced climber must pay up to 2,000 euros if he goes to the mountains in flip-flops.
