Can anyone tell me what it is like in Rome now , regarding the trash removal problem, particularly on the center area and trastevere? We'll be staying near Campo De Fiori, and would be going to all the major atttactions. Is there trash covering the streets, like it was in Napoli a few years ago? Does it smell everywhere? or are they cleaning major attractions and other parts of the center (centeo) clean?
my wife and I love Rome, and are finally travelling with our two sons, ageso 11 and 9, there at the end of August.
I've heard there is a terrible problem with trash not being removed in Rome now, and there is litter everywhere, and that the hot weather is also making everything smell bad. I'm worried that this trash crisis may spoil our trip, and that my kids will see a dirty, smelly, gross city with trash everywhere, and think that I'm crazy for saying Rome is my favorite city.
i would be sad to not go to Rome now, but we have a few days to adjust our trip to go to tuscanny instead (Florence is gewat, but my heart is in rome... ) Any advice and / or information would be so appreciated!
Thanks for you help
