Local Guidelines

Restrictions are gradually lifting, although regions have been organized into color-coded tiers in order to categorize restrictions. Most regions of Italy are classified as 'yellow zones'. A Basic Green Pass or Super Green pass (EU Digital Certificate) is required to access most facilities and establishments or to attend certain events. Proof of vaccination, negative testing, and previous recovery qualify as a Basic Green pass, while only proof of vaccination or recovery will qualify as a Super Green pass.
