Any ideas Sylvester Stallone may have had of a quiet time sightseeing and shopping with his family in Rome, Italy ended soon after the first of many people recognized him on the street.

On Wednesday, the Hollywood legend stepped out to soak in the sights with his wife Jennifer Flavin and their daughters Sophie, Scarlett and Sistine as part of their late-summer vacation.

And it didn’t take long before fans started to gather around them, causing quite the commotion, as they tried to walk from one street to the next browsing at storefronts.

The family of five seemed to focus on the fashion district of The Eternal City, and in particular the famed fashion triangle, which is known for its boutiques and shops full of clothing in and around the historic center.

At one point in the afternoon Stallone and his family were swarmed by fans and had to be escorted their way through the growing crowd, which was partly documented in a video posted on his Instagram page.
