Periodically there are crack downs, like in 1998 when an enterprising district police chief cleaned up the whole EUR district, which by then, had turned into a red light wild west.As of 2015, the prostitutes have slowly trickled back to the EUR district, but not in such great numbers as in the 1990's.
Determined Paola Saulino began her "Pompa Tour" last week and has now completed two nights of her 22-date tour.
They are the cheapest prostitutes, ranging from 15 to 30 Euros.
They consequently have a lot of students, unemployed and old age pensioners as clients, who with their meagre state pensions, can't afford Italian prostitutes.
At the time Paola said: "Those who say NO to the referendum will be waiting in delight for my "Pompa Tour" in January for what I promised to those who voted no."Some have questioned whether the "Pompa Tour" is nothing more than a publicity stunt.
But Paola, who lives in Los Angeles, seemed to dismiss those claims by posting a selfie on her day off.
Rome's top security official suggested the city needs a Red-light district to keep prostitutes off the residential streets, because there has been so many complaints about prostitutes working the streets of the Italian capital.
