Special Message Regarding Covid-19

Updated: November, 2022


The news is good and travel to Italy keeps getting easier due to the easing of travel restrictions.

A word about vaccine requirements to travel to Italy

Since Italy was one of the hardest-hit countries in the early days of the pandemic, they have been understandably extremely cautious. Here are the current Covid-19 rules in Italy:

  • Since June 1, 2022 Italy has lifted the negative Covid test requirement for entry. The U.S. has also lifted the requirement to present a negative Covid test before reentry.
  • Our CDC white vaccine cards are accepted as the equivalent of the EU’s digital “Green Pass” as proof of vaccination. Right now Italy has done away with vaccination checks once you’ve entered the country.
  • Are U.S. citizens required to quarantine? Yes, in some instances: Individuals who test positive in Italy will need to self-isolate between 5-14 days, depending on the specifics of the case. The self-isolation will occur at the traveler’s own expense.

Although cases of Covid-19 have diminished dramatically, and are much less severe than previous years, the pandemic is not over. This past season we had positive cases of Covid on three tours and some tour members had to remain in quarantine for at least 5 days per the Italian Ministry of Health rules.

Andiamo Tours highly recommends purchasing travel insurance. Over the course of the pandemic, many travel insurance companies have expanded or adapted their coverage related to COVID-19. If purchasing insurance specifically for COVID-19 concerns, make sure to carefully review and understand your policy.

In order to protect the health and safety of all tour members, we are asking that all participants have proof of being fully vaccinated per the CDC guidelines to sign on to a tour with Andiamo Tours. That way, tour members who will be together for 11 to 14 days at a time will have a sense of security knowing that everyone in the group is vaccinated, including those with pre-existing health conditions. Staying up to date with booster shots when eligible is your best protection against infection by newer variants.

If you’re thinking about travel in 2023 DO NOT hesitate to get in touch. Since these tours are land-only, you’ll be booking your own airfare, giving you the flexibility to arrive early or stay longer if you’d like. If you have frequent flier miles or a favorite airline, you can use them.

Feel free to reach me via email or phone with any questions. And we’ll continue our mission to give you the trip of a lifetime in one of the most amazing countries in the world. Be well, and stay safe.
