The list of countries that we can travel to changes almost hourly, it can seem, making it difficult to choose where to head to for a long-needed holiday.
But there are still many countries that are not subject to the Home Office’s quarantine rules, and Italy, once the epicentre for the coronavirus in Europe, is off the list and has been welcoming visitors since 10 July.
Once Italy lifted its travel restrictions, tourists have not needed to isolate on arrival to the country, nor do they have to quarantine once they have returned to the UK.
Sadly, this information is only correct at time of writing, and infection rates have been slowly climbing again, so there is a risk of it being placed onto the quarantine list, whether that is then nationally, or regionally. There is a chance that both Sardinia and Sicily could face quarantine restrictions.
Sardinia now has additional restrictions, and all visitors to the island must complete an online registration form at least 48 hours before arrival, or face being refused entry.
Other regions of the country might have their own additional measure in place, so make sure you are aware of any particular requirements well in advance of travelling.
Over the whole of Italy, face masks are mandatory in enclosed public spaces, such as restaurants and public transport, and must be worn in all outdoor spaces between 6 pm and 6 am.
Nightclubs and bars remain closed, but the country’s hotels and attractions have reopened, including the Colosseum, the Vatican, and the Leaning Tower of Pisa, but there will be restrictions on capacity to adhere to social distancing.
As with the UK, you may be asked to supply contact details for track and trace purposes before being allowed to use services in restaurants, beaches and other venues.
