In Rome, they are often standing in the suburbs of the city usually on the consolar roads, like Via Tiburtina, Via Casilina, Via salaria, and the road leading to a seaside suburb, that is Via Cristoforo Colombo. Proposals to legalize brothels again have foundered.

Also, due to it's confused and contradictory laws which while officially permissive, have so many restrictions, that Italy gets the worse consequence, of both permissive and repressive prostitution laws.

"In Italy, prostitution is not a crime but this doesn't mean that you must continue to make believe (the problem) isn't there," Serra (ex Police chief) was quoted saying.
The police has enormous difficulty expelling them from the country, because the Nigerian prostitutes will violently resist expulsion and the Nigerian Embassy won't cooperate sufficiently with the Italian police.

They are the cheapest prostitutes, ranging from 15 to 30 Euros.

As you walk past the whores you can hear them saying something like "ti vuoi divertire un pò? Average cost to have sex with a street whore in this area is 30-50€.
