McDonald's banned from site near Caracalla Baths

McDonald's fast food outlets are ubiquitous, but Italy's culture ministry has banned the chain from building another restaurant near the Caracalla Baths. The baths date from the 3rd century and sit near the center of the city, close to the Coliseum and other famous sites.

Despite the decision, visitors to Rome will not have to travel far to get their Big Mac. The Italian capital already has 40 McDonald's restaurants.
