I've always thought that the busy major thoroughfare running right by the Colosseum and ancient Roman Forum was a light on the atmosphere of such an archaeological area and I guess Rome's mayor does as well.
What do you think - it seems a valid point that the road is an essential connector that if done away with will cause monumental traffic snarls but still for world-class sites like the Colossseum and Forum I think having those in a more serene location is great - and I've always thought the Schlock allowed in front of the colosseum - especially all the vendors selling bird seed, fake birds, etc and faux gladiators posing for pictures for a fee with tourists was tacky as well - not having been to Rome for a few years I wonder if that tacky things are also still allowed?
What do you think about the Mayor of Rome's plans?
