All sorts of things are being banned in Rome lately, from snacking at certain historic sites to placing locks around the Ponte Milvio on the river Tiber. While the city claims these efforts are to maintain the more historic sites, many are looking at Rome's attempt as a move towards a nanny state.

Rome might be one of the world's best destinations for foodies, but thanks to a new city council ordinance tourists will have to keep their delicious slices of pizza away from certain historical monuments.
