The Italian Tourist Board (ENIT) has unveiled new guidelines and protocols to educate and reassure visitors traveling to the country. British visitors can currently travel with no quarantine restrictions in Italy. However, they are required to quarantine for two weeks when returning to the UK.
Flavio Zappacosta, ENIT manager for UK & Ireland, commented: “With the extensive and thorough protocols available online for travelers, we hope to reassure visitors that Italy is ready for tourists and has the correct measures in place to both ensure their health and safety whilst having a fantastic experience in the destination.”
Various safety measures have been implemented
The information includes operational guidelines for businesses and general information and protocols for tourists regarding social distancing measures. Specific information has been published on the Italian Tourist Board website. It also includes links to pages showing specific protocols throughout the holiday experience including restaurants, seaside and beach areas, accommodation facilities, swimming pools, parks, and museums.
Visitors must wear a mask in enclosed spaces including public transport or in places they may not be able to exercise social distancing. Hand sanitizers must also be available and information on prevention measures must be displayed in several languages. A one-meter social distancing rule will apply in all public areas including restaurants, hotels, and public spaces. ENIT has launched its first-ever app, Italia VR to attract tourists. It will include further information on art, history, territory, culture, food, and wine, and also offers three immersive experiences.
