Their bags were packed and they were ready to go but the cast of Jersey Shore's trip to Italy has been put off while problems with shooting permits are worked out, RadarOnline.com is exclusively reporting.

Although the producers have already rented a fabulous townhouse in Florence, the city's mayor Matteo Renzi has increasingly cracked down on where shooting could take place.

As RadarOnline.com has previously reported, the show has been barred from filming the cast drinking -- what, no drinking!

Now permits for shooting at some of the city's most fabled landmarks including the Uffizi gallery and Palazzo Vecchio have been yanked.

The cast had already been filmed with their suitcases, arriving at the airport when they were told to hang back.

RadarOnline.com will keep you posted on the next step in this all too-real MTV drama.
