In the last few weeks, we’ve seen European countries announcing gradual opening of their borders to tourism. In early June travelers will be able to visit Italy without the need to quarantine. The move aims to help restart the country’s economy.
According to Reuters, on May 16, the Italian government approved a decree that will allow foreign travelers to enter the country from June 3. At the same time, Italians will be able to go abroad.
However, Italy is preparing to open its borders to a limited number of countries. According to la Repubblica, only travellers from the European Union and the Schengen area, including Switzerland and Monaco, will be able to enter the country.
Tourists will not need to undergo a mandatory 14-day quarantine.
Being one of the hardest-hit by the Covid-19 pandemic, Italy was one of the first European states to introduce nationwide restrictions. These restrictions began to ease on May 4, when, for example, Italians were allowed to visit parks.
