"Pollution" Rome Warnings Or Dangers Tip by tvor

Rome Warnings and Dangers: 523 reviews and 232 photos

In Rome, the air is not very clean. There are no emission controls on cars which is a major contributor to the air pollution. We were there on sunny days but it always looked as though there were a cloud bank coming in the distance. We would drive and drive and never reach it. It was the pollution hovering. By the end of four days a lot of us thought we were coming down with colds that cleared up once we left Rome and drove north. If you are prone to asthma or other respiratory problems, make sure you have your meds with you.
