Italy’s COVID rules are about to change again, as the country’s state of emergency ends on 31st March.
From 1 April neither version of the Green Pass will be required to consume food or drinks in outdoor areas of bars and restaurants.
People in Italy must continue to wear masks in enclosed public spaces, including schools and public transport, until 30 April. FFP2 masks will continue to be mandatory until this date on public transport as well as in cinemas and theatres.
Commuters on public transport will no longer be obliged to have a Green Pass from 1 April. It will however remain a requirement on long-distance transport until 30 April.
From 1 April the Green Pass will no longer be required to enter post offices, banks, tobacconists or public offices.
You will need the green pass to stay in our holiday home up to 31th March. Travellers have to show the green certificate at the check-in. The Green Pass will not be required anymore from 1 April onwards.
