Warning Signs on Rome’s Subway

It’s difficult enough to get around a foreign country when you don’t speak the language – it’s another when the signs are confusing. My recent trip to Rome brought to face to face with some of my favorite street signs.

First, we rode on the Rome Subway and were faced with these signs. I’m pretty sure my translations are completely accurate.


This one says, “Do not wear this white speedo while boarding the subway.” Probably.



“Do not lean out the door and attempt to get other passengers to do ‘the monkey’ with you.”


“Do not re-enact the story of Samson and Delilah while riding the trains.”

It got even worse when we got off of the train – I’ll share more signs with you, later.
