Is Italy Opened To Tourists?
The Covid-19 pandemic has slapped hard a number of countries in Europe and the restrictions put in place by these countries are the only things keeping them from waves after waves of the pandemic.
Italy, being one of the European countries to suffer great loss from the effects of the pandemic is yet to find a lasting solution to the daily increase in infections.
Tourism in Italy is a leading revenue generation avenue, the question is, has Italy opened its borders for tourist activities?
Travelers at the moment are not allowed into Italy for tourism purposes yet.
All restrictions for Covid-19 travels are still in place while the Italian government is working towards easing such restrictions.
