Italy welcomes visitors

The Italian Tourist Board says that British originating visitors can now enter the country with no quarantine restrictions. However as things stand upon returning to the UK 14 days isolation is required.

Flavio Zappacosta, Manager for the Board in UK and Ireland, commented: “The tourism industry is one of Italy’s key economy drivers, so it is with utmost importance that we open for business as soon as it is safe to do so.

“We know how popular Italy is for Brits and hope we can inspire them to start to plan and book an Italian holiday this year.”

Beach resorts, museums, attractions, parks, as well as bars, restaurants and ice cream shops have all now opened up and comply with a strict set of new guidelines and protocols respecting social distancing at all times.  Also welcoming visitors are gyms, swimming pools and sports centres plus theatres, concert halls, cinemas and other outdoor spaces.

Performances must be held with pre-assigned and spaced seats, on condition that both staff and spectators respect social distancing measures.

Outdoor shows will allow a maximum of 1,000 spectators and for indoor performances, 200 people will be allowed.

Visitors to Italy are advised that it is mandatory to wear a mask in enclosed spaces including public transport or anywhere where they may not be able to exercise social distancing.
