A senior Dutch tourist couple made the Italian evening news yesterday after they had driven their car into the stairs of the Rome metro station.
Il Corriere della Città, the evening news daily of the Italian capital, jokingly stated that: “It can happen that you get lost in Rome, but to drive down the stairs of a railway station takes dedication.”
The message clarified that the elderly Dutch couple drove into the metro station with their Skoda Octavia around noon, between the fences of the metro station Magliana.
The man is said to be 70 years old, his wife 72.
Pictures circulating on Twitter show how the Italian police are helping them.
