Italy holidays: Why Milan has just banned selfie sticks, water bottles and food trucks | Travel News | Travel 829979 1

If you’re planning a holiday to Milan, you’ll need to leave your selfie stick at home. 

The Italian city has just outlawed the Travel device in popular tourist areas – and that’s not all. 

Glass bottles have also been banned in a bid to curb littering and anti-social behaviour. 

Tourists can’t hold, carry, dispose of or receive any form of glass bottle, container or can under the new rules.

Piazza XXIV Maggio, Gorizia Avenue, Via Codara, Cantore Square and Gabriele D’Annunzio Avenue are all included in the prohibited zones. 

Officials have put a stop to firecrackers and fireworks in these areas too.

Under the banner of “moving trade” in public spaces, food trucks are no longer allowed to operate there either. 

The new laws are in effect until August 13 but they will be extended if the government sees fit.

Security councillor Carmela Rozza said it’s a “renewable provision” that “will continue until it is needed”.

She added: “The purpose of this ordinance is to make it a habit not to bring glass bottles or cans in the area.”

Milan joins a host of other destinations in Italy that have tightened the rules to clamp down on anti-social tourist behaviour. 

Earlier this year Florence began hosing down the steps of its churches during the day so that holidaymakers could no longer eat or drink there. 

Rome has just banned drinking at nighttime, during the peak tourist season. 

Barcelona has shunned tourists by placing a ban on new hotels. 

The metropolis has become so popular for holidays that it can no longer cope with demand.

Barcelona’s 1.6 million residents were swamped with 32 million Travels last year alone.
