Rome's traffic-free Sundays to battle smog

Traffic restrictions on five Sundays to combat air pollution in Rome.

Rome has banned motorists from driving within the fascia verde (green belt) on Sunday 4 December from 07.30 to 12.30 and from 16.30 until 20.30.

The traffic restrictions, ordered by Rome mayor Roberto Gualtieri, are part of five car-free Sundays scheduled on 20 November, 4 December, 8 January, 5 February and 26 March 2023.

Known as domeniche ecologiche (Ecological Sundays), the traffic restrictions are designed to curb air pollution in the capital.

There are a number of exemptions to the traffic ban including less-polluting vehicles, electric cars and people travelling for essential medical treatment.
