Rome prohibits drinking at night near major nightlight tourist spots

Published on : Thursday, July 13, 2017

Coliseum, Rome, Italy.Rome passed a rule prohibiting eating and drinking near famous fountains. Next, it made it clear that drinking is no longer allowed during the nighttime and specially during the peak tourist season.

 

Mayor Virginia Raggi has brought in an order outlawing the sale and consumption of alcohol in public places, effective immediately and ending 31 October. It will be applicable in 14 of the Italian capital’s 15 municipi, or areas.

 

The city council’s website has clearly stated about the ban in the consumption of alcohol outdoors and on public transport from midnight to 7am. A ban on drinking from glass bottles comes in earlier, at 10pm. The sale of alcohol is prohibited from 10pm in the supermarkets. The bars have to stop serving alcohol after 2am.

 

In order to curb antisocial behaviour in the capital, anybody who would not abide by the law will be fined €150 for drinking, or €280 for selling beyond the mentioned time.

 

It’s not the first time Rome has introduced a temporary ban like this – but Raggi’s is the first to cover the city so extensively.

 

The rule applies to the areas specially near and around the historical centres and around the nightlife areas such as Monti, Testaccio, Trastevere and even Ostia on the coast.

 

The only municipio to be exempted from the order is Ottavia, the suburb where Raggi lives herself!

  1. Sure, come to Rome spend your money but DO NOT in any way inconvenience the Romans who in any case would not conform to these outrageous and unenforceable rules.
