Local Guidelines

A state of national emergency has been declared which limits all private gatherings to a maximum of 10 people. A National Certificate (EU Digital Certificate) as proof of vaccination, testing, or recovery is required to access most facilities and establishments. Those that do not request a National Certificate are subject to strict capacity limits. We recommend keeping up-to-date with official guidelines throughout your trip.
