Smoking questions about italy?

Okay, I'm 17, i'll be going to rome in march with college and was curious about the legal smoking age/purchase age in italy, how to order them and any tips/tricks because I honestly couldn't go a week without a good ol' cigarette (I'm totally uninterested about the ridiculous anti smoking debate so please restrain yourselves from going into it unless you've tried it please? much obliged)

Answer on Smoking questions about italy?

Hi! Here in Italy you can legally buy cigarettes from the age of 16. They are sold in shops called "Tabaccheria" and in some bars too. You can recognize these places because they usually have this sign hanging over the door:

Hope you'll have a good time in Rome!
