Italy gradually getting back on track after COVID-19 affected its tourism

Published on : Wednesday, May 19, 2021

Italy is slowly getting back on track after COVID-19 affected its tourism badly last year. Its tourism industry is opening up to travelers from some select countries as of now, and there is hope that one of the world’s most loved countries for travelers might soon witness a comeback. Tourism is one of the main revenue earners for Italy; before the pandemic, tourism brought in 13 per cent of Italy’s GDP. Italy has formally reopened its borders to international travelers and has allowed restriction-free travel for visitors from some countries.


Earlier this week, Italy reopened for EU member states, Israel along with the UK. Travelers from these countries will need to provide COVID-19 negative certificates, vaccination certificate or proof of their recovery from COVID-19 in the past six months. Italian Prime Minister Mario Draghi said that Italy would be welcoming tourists possibly from mid-May. COVID-19 related parameters like infection rate, hospitalization and death rates has improved in the country over the past month and this is one of the reasons why Italy is reopening.
