Here’s a link to the latest information about traveling to Italy – the US State Department site is cautiously optimistic, saying that family members can come to Italy, but they will need to self-isolate for two weeks on arrival. No details about where and how the self-isolating should be done are given though.
The Italian Ministry site however, clearly states that no travel is allowed for purposes of tourism unless one is from San Marino, Monaco, Vatican City, some EU countries, Schengen countries, the UK, Northern Ireland and Andorra.
Still it seems a good sign that the US is no longer listed as a prohibited country – now it just doesn’t mention the US in any way…
Let’s hope that the Italian government decree a few days ago that family members can now visit Italy shows that the government is cautiously inching its way to loosening up the border. Maybe by mid-October, they’ll have something even happier to say – hope so!
