With more than 13 million people in 2017, Rome continues to remain one of the most popular tourism destinations amongst the global tourists. The Argentinians are no different. At the end of 2013, after Pope Francis was elected, the number of Argentinians visiting Rome rose by more than 60 percent.
Although there were some tourist scams which were uncovered in some of the restaurants in the city, the appeal of the Eternal City is unique because of its art. More recently in news, there were four Japanese students who had to pay €1,100, or $1,400 for four steaks, a plate of fried fish and two glasses of red wine. Following this, it was recommended to the tourists to check the prices before ordering and look up tourist reviews online about the restaurant.
There is a strong temptation to scam since not many of the 13 million tourists speak Italian and appear to have a lot of money. However, cheating is not free! The Venetian restaurant will have to pay a €20,000 fine, almost $25,000. But will all these in news, the Argentinians still make up a considerable percentage for the Rome tourists.
