Coronavirus in Umbria - Current situation

With the Dpcm (Decree of the President of Council of Ministers) of 9 March 2020, the Italian government establishes rigorous measures aimed at countering the spread of the new Coronavirus Covid-19.

The decree extends the provisions of art. 1 of the Dpcm 8 March 2020 to the whole national territory.

These measures are effective from March 10 and are valid until April 3, 2020.

In these weeks we are all called to give our contribution by respecting the rules with rationality and avoid uncaring or excessively anxious attitudes. Staying at home means protecting not only yourself but above all the most vulnerable people.

Through our website and our social networks we will continue to keep you company, telling you about the wonders of our region with the certainty that we will return to fully experience them soon.
