With Italy still in it’s Second Lockdown, of course many of us are still waiting to know the answer to the golden question, is it still possible to travel to Italy without restrictions for Summer 2021?

Is my Italy Summer 2021 Trip still Going to Happen?

Italy’s Tourism Industry has been put on hold since February 20th, and of course the country has seen a significant decline in national and international visitors since, however we are happy to say the possibility of the borders being closed to foreign travellers until 2021 is simply not true, which of course gives us some sort of indication and hope that a summer in Italy will still be possible.

During the Summer, Southern Italy witnessed a surge in arrivals of travellers from other European countries, as well as many Italians who chose to spend their summers holidays in Italy and enjoy the beauty located closer to home especially during the months of September and early October. Sorrento and the Amalfi Coast welcomed visitors mainly from Northern European Countries and the United Kingdom. Unfortunately, with the start of the second wave of COVID-19 and the new limitations travel, there has again been a decline in visitors and bookings.

However, finally we have some great and positive news regarding the COVID-19 Vaccine development in Italy and we are happy to say that, since the Vaccination Campaign launched in Dec 2020, Italy has now already surpassed 1 Million Vaccinations! With this important development, we predict that travel will become much easier and restrictions will begin to ease meaning that for Summer 2021, could be the summer we all missed out on this year.
