China curbs tourist visits to Vatican
November 22, 2017
CWN Editor's Note: The Chinese government has announced new restrictions on travel agencies, slapping heavy fines on those that promote tours of the Vatican. The restrictions became public, ironically, just one day after the announcement that the Vatican Museums and China’s Forbidden City were launching a joint art exhibit.
Chinese tourism in Italy has become immensely popular, with most visitors spending much of their time at the Vatican.
