availability of British cigarettes

Hi there

Can anyone let me know if British cigarettes are easily available on Lake Maggiore.

We will be staying in Stresa for 2 weeks next month. Also if they are how much can I expect to pay, certainly not as much in Scotland I would hope.

Many thanks

The good news first... whilst there may have been another since then, the 20th Feb version of the official price list (you'll see little or no discounting of genuine product) is here..

aams.gov.it/sites/aams2008/files/TABACCHI/PR…

About €5 for a pack of 20 - try to ignore the per kilo equivalent!

No idea however of what you'll find available!

Sorry I have never been to Stresa so can offer no help there but I know you can buy English cigarettes around Lakes Como and Garda. They seem to be available in most tourist centres and big cities..Although the price in Italy has increased a lot in recent years they are still much cheaper than in the U.K.

A packet of cigarettes costs around €5 so expensive here as well, what cigarettes are you talking about?

That's not expensive. Try €15 in Australia.

Under €5 a packet. You get most brands from the UK in Italy.
