TRAVELLING SAFELY

For a peaceful and stress-free stay in Trentino

This page contains useful information on the Coronavirus situation in Trentino and real-time updates on the measures taken by the Province of Trento to reduce risks and guarantee the health of guests and citizens.

In short:

  • Trentino is a white zone. By behaving sensibly and with a sense of responsibility, we can get back to travelling freely and enjoying the mountains, nature, and our delicious food and wine.

  • Travel between regions or autonomous provinces that are in yellow or white zones is currently permitted.

  • As of 6 August, anyone over 12 years of age may only take part in or do certain activities if they have a Green Pass (anyone who has received their first jab or is fully vaccinated, has had COVID and recovered, tested negative after a molecular test or rapid test in the last 48 hours).


  • For a safe and relaxing stay, we encourage you to observe all the good practices that have by now become familiar to us all: wash and sanitise your hands regularly, keep a safe distance from non-family members, and always wear protection over your nose and mouth in indoor public spaces.

For further details, you can learn more in the collapsible sections below about the current provisions regarding catering and restaurants, accommodation, public transportation, and how to enjoy all the leisure activities on offer in Trentino.

 

Attention: due to the constantly changing situation, sudden changes may be made to the regulations which may result in stricter or looser provisions. This page and the sections it contains will be constantly updated.
