Covid 19

General information on COVID-19

Find here the current situation according to the new measures to contain the spread of COVID-19.

Tuscany is in the red zone. People cannot leave their home except for proven reasons of absolute necessity (health or work) with a self-declaration indicating the reason. Concerning restaurants and bars, only take away service is allowed until 10pm (bars until 6pm) and home delivery service with no limitations. Hotels may stay open with their restaurants only for customers. Non-essential shops, museums, monuments, theatres and cinemas will remain closed until further notice.

Red restrictions will be applied throughout Italy on April 3, 4 and 5 (Easter time), with all the restrictions listed above. Only one exception! Visits to the homes of friends and relatives within the region will be permitted once a day from 5am to 10pm, by no more than two people at a time, who may be accompanied by kids 14 and under and those with disabilities.

Transit between regions throughout the national territory is still prohibited, except for proven work requirements, situations of necessity or health reasons. However, the return to one's own residence is allowed, as well as to second homes, with the cohabiting family members. In Tuscany, however, a restrictive measure allows you to go to your second home only if you are resident of this region.

It is always mandatory to wear facemasks, both in all indoor public places and outdoor and to respect the recommended social distance of at least 1 meter (3 feet) from one another. The curfew from 10pm to 5am remains in effect.

Travellers coming to Italy from the rest of the European Union are required to undergo a test (RT-PCR test or a rapid antigen test within 48 hours prior to departure). Access from UK, Ireland and extra-EU countries is not allowed or allowed with restrictions. More details here.
