People crowd Via del Corso shopping street ahead of a Christmas Eve national lockdown due to start on Dec. 24, in Rome, Dec. 23, 2020. Italians are easing into a holiday season full of restrictions, and already are barred from traveling to other regions except for valid reasons like work or health. Starting Christmas Eve, travel beyond city or town borders also will be blocked, with some allowance for very limited personal visits in the same region.
