Drinking ban covers every district of Rome except Ottavia where mayor lives.
Rome mayor Virginia Raggi has introduced an order banning the sale and consumption of alcohol in public places at night in an attempt to curb anti-social behaviour in the capital.
The measures, issued frequently under previous mayors Gianni Alemanno and Ignazio Marino, have been extended by Raggi, covering 14 of the city's 15 municipi, or town halls. The only municipio exempt from the order is Ottavia, the suburb in which the mayor resides.
The ban mainly affects areas of Rome most associated with night-life such as Monti, Celio, Esquilino, Trastevere, Testaccio, Pigneto, Ostiense, Bologna, Prati, S Lorenzo, Ponte Milvio, EUR and Ostia.
Traders caught in breach of the order face penalties of €280 while consumers can be fined €150.
The city has issued notices outlining details of the alcohol ban, in Italian, English, French, Spanish and German, for traders to display. For full details see city website.
