Traffic-free Sunday in Rome

Third anti-smog Sunday in Rome this year

Traffic in Rome has been banned within the fascia verde (green belt) on Sunday 23 February from 07.30 to 12.30, and from 16.30 to 19.00.

The ban was originally scheduled until 20.30 but was brought forward to 19.00 on account of the Lazio-Sassuolo football match at the Stadio Olimpico at 20.45.

The move is part of regional measures to curb air pollution and is the third edition the initiative so far this year, after two other “ecological Sundays” in January and February.

The ban includes vehicles with permits to access the city centre and limited traffic zones (ZTL). It excludes electric cars; petrol and diesel Euro 5 cars; Euro 2 and Euro 3 motorcycles; cars with special permits for disabled drivers.

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