Smoking Ban on Restaurants, cafe and Trains in Italy

An official ban on smoking in all enclosed public places has come into force in Italy in January 2005.
It aims to protect against passive smoking and deter those who pursue a habit that is calculated to
kill 90,000 Italians a year. The new law obliges restaurants, bars, offices and factories to prohibit
tobacco use on their premises, unless they provide special sealed off rooms with smoke extractors.
In reality, few retailers will be able to fulfill this condition, making it practically impossible to smoke
in any public places.

A fine of up to 2,000 euros may be levied on businesses, which fail to comply with this law.
Smokers themselves may be fined up to 275 euros. The fine can double if a smoker lights up in
front of children or pregnant women. Italy is the third European country, after Ireland and Norway,
to bring in a smoking ban. The British government has revealed plans to follow suit. A recent White
Paper on public health calls for a smoke-free environment in workplaces and establishments that
serve food by 2009 across England.
