Unfortunately, due to Covid and restrictions, it will be more complicated this summer to be able to come to the beautiful country.
The real problems that arise in the movements between the UK and Italy are not related to the actions of our government, but those adopted by Prime Minister Boris Johnson. But let’s see why.

These procedures, however new in our lives, are not overly restrictive and allow, with proper control, the possibility to come to the beautiful country.

This forces Sicilians and Italians abroad to return only for a few days. but not only costs of the holidays rise significantly. Between tampons to arrive in Italy and those made in the UK, costs can exceed in some cases تتجاوز 300/400 euros in total.
