No Wining for Teenagers in Milan

Breaking news...For the first time in Italy's history, Milan city council has banned serving and selling alcohol to persons under the age of 16. The law goes into effect on Monday. Prior to this new regulation, Italy had no laws prohibiting the drinking age. Fines for serving teens under the age of 16 range from 500 euros to 750 euros. The fine also applies to catching under age teens drinking.

Driving In Italy

There is nothing more fearful than driving in Italy. No matter how prepared you think you are, I guarantee you, you will need a change of underwear especially if you decide to drive along the Amalfi Coast. While there is no scenery more beautiful, prepare yourself for the ride of your life. The narrow winding roads will leave you breathless.

Did you know that in the first week of August, ten million italians take their vacation. That's right, ten million italians on the road. If that doesn't scare you then you need to start jumping out of planes. I recommend you get off the road between the hours of 11:45 and 12:30 p.m. and go have pranzo (lunch). This leaves the road wide open for those Italians speeding to get home, have lunch, nap, and get back to work with as little car damage as possible.

Seriously, driving is the best way to see as much of Italy as you can. In addition to renting a good car, pay for the extra insurance, and invest in a good road map. Happy Driving
