Locals outraged; tourists take a dip in 400-year old fountain

- Fontana dell’Acqua Paolo is a  400-year-old fountain in Rome

- Locals were outraged when three tourists wore their bikini and had a splash in the fountain

- A passerby was able to take photos of the incident and the women are yet to be identified

As more people want to see the world from their very own pair of eyes, an influx of tourists in various countries was to be expected. Individuals of different nationalities are forced to mingle with one another; introducing them to a brand new culture and novel experiences whilst the other party was expected to behave according to the nation’s customs.

But no matter how much you remind the visitors, there are still quite a few who left their manners back home and had a penchant for trouble. Three tourists in particular are making the rounds online – recipients of the heat and backlash of outraged locals.

A group of young women who appeared to be all in their 20s strip down into their bikinis and proceeded to frolicked in Fontana dell’Acqua Paolo, a fountain deemed to be 400 years old in Rome. The three ladies have yet to be identified as photos of them were only snapped by a passerby. As for how long they stayed under the cool shade and water the fountain had offered and whether a police officer managed to catch sight and arrest the trio has yet to be known as well.

A hefty fine would be waiting for these offenders if they would be recognized.

Over the weekend, Rome’s temperature reached 32C which possibly prompted such actions. However, this is not enough reason to disrespect the monument as locals expressed their dismay on the incident.

Trastevere, an online magazine, took to Twitter that the fountain is not a pool and a place for swimming. It was retweeted over 300 times with many agreeing on its claims. One user easily assumed that the ladies hail from either Germany or England, and declared on doing similar activities when he takes a trip to the aforementioned places. Many were quick to call the women ‘rude,’ while some were disappointed on how the witness did not confront the ladies, opting to only capture a few photos. - HB, Kami Media
