Italy has been put under a total lockdown, as the novel coronavirus spreads across the country.

New measures include travel restrictions, a ban on all public events, the closures of schools and many public spaces. Religious services and sporting events have also been suspended. The situation is complicated.


Today famous tourist sites are deserted, a smattering of bar-goers kept at arm's length from each other at formerly lively establishments and worried citizens stood in line outside stores after drastic restrictions were imposed to contain the deadliest coronavirus outbreak outside China.


Here's the situation today told through photos taken from Skylinewebcams.com, these places are generally the most frequented by tourists, but today are empty:
