This seems to cover the requirements for re-entry. With the caveat that you will need to check current regulations at your time of intended travel.

Returned from Italy 10 days ago. But i am German, so things might be slightly different for you.

Basically its rather relaxed at the moment.
- wear masks in shops, public transport and while getting to restaurant tables
- use the EU passenger locator form before entering
- have proof of vaccination. Not sure if you need it 100%, but i have the QR-code on my phone and when i was asked for "green pass" i showed it. No idea what would have happened otherwise, might be theres other solutions. Was not asked that many times however (only like 40% of the times when i was eating inside a restaurant)

thats pretty much it.

Here is the link from the Italian Ministry of Health.


You will want to check your own country's requirements for returning home.

FWIW, I flew from Portugal to Rome Ciampino two weeks ago and was not asked to show anything to enter (I haven't exited yet), but that was a flight within the Schengen zone and your flight is not.

Thank you, Anhalter. Great information, I hope you enjoyed the experience - I can't wait to feel the freedom!

Thanks for the link, GPeachy - great info. I'm looking forward to coming back to the beauty that is the Via Francigena.

Thanks, jungleboy. The Schengen zone.... I wish! Maybe I won't come home 😷

Returned from Italy a few days ago. You have to wear masks indoors (shopping...), but in restaurants only to and from your table.
For indoor dinners you need to show the "green pass" what is simply the vacc. proof. I showed them my QR code via CovPass app and that always worked.
All in all I found it rather relaxed in Italy at this time.

Best wishes,
Volker

I suggest you to check also the Italian government website on travel requirements. It is available in Italian and in English:
Buon cammino!

Camino Francis 2012, 2014, 2016. Camino Norte 2018. Many more to come in my future God willing !
Just arrived back in the U.S. from Italy.
Throughout the country they were quite strict about mask wearing and temperature taking (Even to enter a McDonald's restaurant!). When entering many locations I had to display my CDC card (The U.S. equivalent to a green pass).
Coming back to the U.S. I had to obtain a Rapid Test result and have it uploaded onto my phone for display at the airports upon boarding. (I was also issued a hard copy of the document as well).
Overall is was painless and if anything just a little bit of a time delay here and there, but other than that it was all worth it in the end.
