Last updated on 20 November 2020, 9.00 am


Abruzzo has been recently classified in the red area. This means that until 3 December rules and protocols for containment of the infection have been in effect.

The situation is constantly monitored by the local health authorities through the adoption of specific prevention measures.

It’s allowed to leave one’s house only for strictly necessary reasons; it is forbidden to move to other Municipalities or other Regions, except for proven work or health needs or for reasons of necessity and urgency, to be justified with self-certification.

Bars, restaurants, pubs, pizzerias, ice cream shops and pastry shops are closed to the public. Catering with home delivery is allowed as well as catering with take-away until 10pm. It is forbidden to consume on the spot or nearby.

Commercial activities that sell food and basic necessities remain open. Malls are closed with the exception of supermarkets, pharmacies and parapharmacies, newsstands and tobacconists inside them. Museums and other places of culture, theatres, cinemas, bingo halls, arcades, casinos, gyms, swimming pools, leisure centers, ski facilities, health centres, spas and social centres remain closed. Public transport travels at 50% of its allowed capacity. Railway stations, highways, ports and airports are open and functioning.

Now and for the next few weeks the most important thing to do is to follow the measures adopted by the Government with care and a sense of responsibility, in order to preserve one’s health and that of one's relatives and friends, especially of the most fragile people mostly exposed to the risks of contagion.

The managers of accommodation facilities and tour operators in Abruzzo are ready to welcome you back and offer you their best hospitality as soon as this emergency phase is over.
