Traffic-free Sunday in Rome

Second anti-smog Sunday this year in Rome.

Traffic in Rome has been banned from circulating within the fascia verde (green belt) on Sunday 28 February from 07.30 to 12.30, and from 16.30 until 20.30.

The move is part of regional measures to curb air pollution and is the second in a series of four “ecological Sundays” planned for Rome.

The ban includes vehicles with permits to access the city centre and limited traffic zones (ZTL) and for the first time includes “Euro 5″ petrol and diesel cars.

It excludes electric cars; petrol and diesel Euro 6 cars; Euro 2 and Euro 3 motorcycles; and cars with special permits for disabled drivers.

For a full list of exempted vehicles as well as the city boundaries see the city website.
