Face a Fine for Rolling Your Suitcase Through Dubrovnik

In order to reduce the noise in the city and make more space on the streets, Croatia's city of Dubrovnik is now introducing a ban that sounds strange at first glance. Anyone caught rolling a suitcase in the city faces a fine of €265 ($289 USD).

The reason for this is the volume that can sometimes be caused by rolling such a suitcase over the cobbled streets. Residents have been complaining about the noise for a long time. So if you are now traveling to the old town of Dubrovnik with a suitcase, you should carry it for the time being. In fall, however, a new system should simplify suitcase transport. Storage places are planned from November and free transport to the accommodation should also be organized in the medium term.

Flip-Flop Ban in Cinque Terre

Dubrovnik is not the only city where bans are used to combat over-tourism and its consequences. For example, some Italian islands have car bans in high season, and Sardinia restricts access to some beaches. In the tourist region of Cinque Terre, travelers are now also getting their shoes on. Anyone caught wearing flip-flops on the hiking trail along the cliffs that connect the picturesque towns can expect a fine of up to €2,500 ($2,727).
