Liquor Limits in Rome
Rome's mayor, Gianni Alemanno, has just issued a city-wide ban on selling alcohol "to-go" after 9 pm (supermarkets included!) and restrictions on restaurants and clubs after 2 am. A recent stabbing of a tourist in Campo dei Fiori prompted the decision which many residents had been requesting for years. It seems that not everyone in Rome is interested in staying up all night with a bottle of wine in the piazzas and narrow alleyways of Trastevere! Don't worry, you can still purchase alcohol to go-just do it before 9 pm.
