Italy and Europe are open to the US! (7/1/21)
While the CDC and WHO still recommend vaccination before traveling, there are options for travelers for entry: proof of recovery from the virus, a negative test result, or proof of vaccine.
I visited Rome and mid-June, and it was amazing: light crowds, beautiful weather and mostly normal day-to-day business. They still require masks indoors and on public transportation, but they’re back to full capacity for dining and they’re in great spirits.
Multiple times I heard restaurant staff, shopkeepers and tour guides thank us for coming. They are delighted to welcome back the Americans they missed so much. Here’s what’s coming up yet this year:
September – this is a great time to visit Rome and the Amalfi Coast!
Fall weather, light crowds and a glorious welcome from our Italian friends who have missed us. Our 11-day small-group tour will include some of Rome’s greatest monuments, local dishes, and wine tastings. We’ll walk the ruins of old Pompeii, swim in the Tyrrhenian Sea, and spend a day on our private boat visiting Capri. $4,300/pp/double occupancy or $5,590 single occupancy. Sept. 24 – Oct. 4
October – Luxury sailing trip through the islands of Croatia
This 7-day cruise aboard a large yacht will sail from Dubrovnik to Split, with an option to add two nights in Split. Partnering with Sail Croatia to offer this adventure. $2,100/pp/double occupancy Oct 6-13 (sold out, sorry!)
**Covid-19 update: International travel is resuming and travel restrictions continue to decrease. For Italy and most of Europe, travelers need either a negative test result, proof of recovery or proof of vaccine.**
