No alcohol!No drinking, we’re underage!

Be careful: starting July 18 2009 teenage drinking is prohibited all across town and anyone who supplies youths under the age of 16 with alcohol - either wine or spirits - will face punishment.
The Milan City Council was among the first to introduce a regulation of this kind in Italy.
Whether you agree or disagree - at CiaoMilano quite frankly we find it a little over the top - please keep in mind that a fine of up to €450 will be imposed on the parents of offending children and on shopkeepers or bar owners who serve them.
