On public transport

I just learned this today:

A ticket-holding commuter can take any of the following with him/her on a bus around Rome at no extra cost:

  • a hunting rifle (only if it is unloaded)
  • a fishing rod (of certain dimensions I didn’t note down)
  • a maximum of two goldfish
  • a maximum of two chicks (i.e. baby birds)
  • a child under the age of four and less than a metre tall

Never seen anyone with the first four 🙂
