People who violate the new order will face a fine from 25 to 500 euros. Police will now patrol the area to enforce the new ban, news.com.au reported.

In Barcelona and Mallorca, for example, people can be fined for wearing swimwear outside of a beach or pool area. And in Italy, the town of Praia a Mare prohibits walking barefoot in town, while Rapallo bans dressing skimpy, according to news.com.au.
