- individuals travelling from Schengen Zone countries, the UK, Andorra and Monaco have been allowed to enter Italy without restrictions;

- hotels, B&B facilities and holiday homes have been allowed to be booked.
Gatherings remain prohibited.
The obligation to maintain a distance of at least 1 metre from other people is still in place.
The obligation to wear face masks in indoor public spaces is still in place. In Lombardy, wearing face masks outdoors as well is still compulsory.
Wearing face masks in cars is still compulsory, unless travelling with one’s family and/or people from one’s household, for a maximum of 4 individuals, including the driver.
When travelling with people not from one’s household in a vehicle approved to carry 5 passengers, the vehicle may carry a maximum of 2 passengers besides the driver, occupying the rear side seats and avoiding the rear centre seat.
Likewise, a 7-seat vehicle may carry a maximum of 5 people, including the driver.
Any individuals entering public offices are still required to have their body temperature checked; people with a temperature exceeding 37.5 °C will be denied access.
The obligation to stay home for those with a temperature equal to or higher than 37.5 °C is still in place.
Italy is expected to reopen to travellers from all over the world on June 15 (unless circumstances dictate a change in date).
The immigration offices at the Prefectures and Police Headquarters where files cannot be entirely processed online have reopened, though with significant restrictions, visitors being admitted by appointment only, to be fixed by the relevant authorities.
