Americans can now travel for free in quarantine for Italy Going through COVID-tested flights, and Air Canada announcing that they will offer COVID tested flights to Rome since July 2, the demand to visit Italy has increased rapidly. Perfectly timed for this, the Italian National Tourist Office earlier this month launched its “Travel to Italy AcademyÂ»Training site for advisers.
Created and managed by the Italian National Tourism Board, this online training course provides travel counselors with the inspiration, knowledge and confidence to create unforgettable itineraries to sell (and sell) to clients on their trips to the country of “La Dolce Vita”.
By becoming an âItalian travel specialistâ, travel counselors will broaden their knowledge and expertise of the country, including discovering destinations off the beaten track; they will also be kept up to date with the latest news and information from the Italian National Tourist Office. Modules include those such as “Italian cities of art, “Food and wine, “Move, “Italian UNESCO World Heritage Sites“and”Outdoor and active holidaysÂ», Among others.
At the end of the course, advisers receive the designation of âItaly specialistâ as well as a certificate proving to clients that they are experts in the destination. In terms of Academy benefits, those who have completed the course will be part of the priority group considered for FAM programs. Other services are still under development (because it is a new program for the tourist office).
Travelers from the United States can currently visit Italy; However, at least until July 30, they will have to self-isolate for 10 days upon arrival. Travelers must also complete a Digital passenger tracking form and prove that you have undergone a molecular or antigenic test, carried out with a swab, with a negative result, within 72 hours before your arrival. As soon as they enter the national territory, they must inform their local health authority of reference. In addition, travelers should only use private means of transport to reach their final destination in Italy. After the 10-day quarantine, travelers must take another molecular or antigen test.
