Italy has outlined strict coronavirus curbs for Christmas, including a ban on travel between different regions from 21 December to 6 January.
A curfew from 22:00 to 05:00 will also be in place.
Restaurants can open in some regions until 18:00 but only takeaways are allowed in other parts of the country. Ski slopes must close until 7 January.
It comes as Italy announced its highest daily Covid death toll since the pandemic started, with 993 fatalities.
“We cannot let down our guard,” Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte told a news conference.
“We must eliminate the risk of a third wave which could arrive in January – and not less serious than the first and the second,” he added.
There will be travel exceptions for work, medical reasons or emergencies.
