We are ever faithful to the spirit of openness and hospitality that are part of our DNA and we have never stopped working hard to ensure everyone’s safety and because we want your stay in Trentino to be a moment dedicated to your well-being and to the well-being of your loved ones.
Trentino has been a yellow zone since 26 April. With awareness and a sense of responsibility, let's get back to travelling freely, enjoying our mountains, nature and our delicious food and wine.
Travel between regions or autonomous provinces that are in yellow or white zones is permitted.
Those with a green pass or certification - i.e. a certificate issued to those who have been fully vaccinated, those who have had COVID and recovered, those who have tested negative after molecular tests or rapid tests in the last 48 hours - can travel from one region to another even if they are in red or orange zones and without proven need.
It is possible to travel throughout the whole country for reasons of work, health and necessity.
For more details, you can learn more in the collapsible sections below, about the current provisions and measures taken and to be taken for a worry-free stay.
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.

As of today, Trentino is in the yellow zone, with numbers showing a clear improvement in the epidemiological situation, which is constantly monitored by a dedicated task force. Below, we have summarised the main measures which are in place in our province:
- From 26 April, travel is permitted between regions and provinces that are in yellow and white zones (i.e. low risk). For travel to regions of different colours, green certification has been introduced, which allows for mobility throughout the country and is valid for one of the following conditions:
- negative swab within the last 48 hours
- certificate of vaccination
- recovery from COVID within the last 6 months.
- The restriction on non-essential travel remains in place between the hours of 10:00 p.m. and 5:00 a.m. throughout the country. During the rest of the day, it is possible to travel to a single inhabited private home, once per day only, in a group of no more than two people (plus any minors or people who need to be accompanied). From 1 May to 15 June 4 people can travel together at any one time.
- Catering facilities may offer table service for both lunch and dinner, provided that the tables are outdoors and comply with social distancing. After 1 June, food and drinks can also be served indoors from 5 a.m. to 6 p.m. Take-away will be allowed until 10 p.m., while home delivery will continue to be allowed, subject to the rules on packaging and delivery. Restaurant service is allowed without time limits only within hotel facilities and only for hotel guests.
- It is compulsory to wear a face mask both indoors and outdoors and in the vicinity of people whom you do not live with. Children under the age of 6 remain exempt from this obligation, although the obligation to wear a face mask on all public transportation, for the entire duration of the journey, applies from the age of 3 years and up. People with health conditions that prevent them from wearing a face mask and anyone performing physical activity alone while outside of residential areas and respecting minimum social distancing of at least two metres from others are exempt from the obligation to wear a mask.
- From 26 April, cultural venues such as cinemas, theatres, concert halls, live music venues, museums, galleries, libraries and cultural institutes will reopen to the public in a safe and restricted manner, complying with social distancing.
- From 26 April it will be possible to play outdoor sports, including team and contact sports, but the use of changing rooms and indoor spaces will not be permitted. For individual exercise, a minimum distance of 2 metres from other people should be observed and crowded spaces should be avoided. From 15 May, outdoor swimming pools can be used, and from 1 June, gyms can reopen in accordance with specific protocols.
- From 15 May, commercial activities in markets and shopping centres, shopping malls, business parks will reopen on public holidays and pre-holidays in accordance with protocols.
- From 15 June, trade fairs will be able to resume, and from 1 July, congresses and conferences will be possible, subject to compliance with specific guidelines and protocols.
- From 1 July onwards, spas, theme parks and amusement parks will be able to reopen in the yellow zone, subject to quotas and regulations to counter the spread of the virus.
- Trentino falls within the Yellow Zone and therefore travel to and from our Province from other parts of the country is possible that are in the same colour zone or are in the white zone. For travel from regions of another colour, reasons of proven need and green certification will apply.
- Restrictions on travel between 10 p.m. and 5 a.m. remain in place throughout the country, unless justified by proven need.
- Prime Ministerial Decree of 2 March regulates travel to/from abroad until 15 May: it requires a molecular or antigenic test to be carried out within 48 hours of boarding or the border crossing, and the completion of a self-declaration form for travellers coming from or having stayed/transited in the countries on list C, which can be consulted here. All those who have stayed in or transited through one or more of the countries on the above-mentioned list in the 14 days preceding entry into Italy, regardless of the outcome of the molecular or antigenic test, must also undergo a 5-day quarantine period in their Italian home or residence, after notifying the competent health authority of their entry. An additional molecular or antigenic test is also mandatory at the end of the five-day quarantine period.
- After 19 April, a negative molecular or antigenic test within 48 hours prior to entry into Italy is compulsory also for those who have stayed or transited in the previous 14 days in one or more countries included in list D, accompanied by a self-certification form as prescribed by the Order of 16 April issued by the Ministry of Health. As of the same date, the period of self-isolation for those who have come from or transited through these countries is reduced from 14 to 10 days. At the end of this quarantine, an additional molecular or antigenic swab test is mandatory. You can only reach your final destination in Italy by private transportation.
- For E-listed countries, travel can only be allowed for specific reasons and therefore not for tourism. Until 30 April 2021, the ban on entry into Italy from Brazil and from India, Bangladesh and Sri Lanka remains in force, with limited exceptions.
- Once in Trentino, you must report your arrival in Italy to the Trento APSS (Provincial Health Services) Prevention Department by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org and attaching a copy of your completed self-certification, ID and test results, also acceptable in the original language.

Take-away is still allowed within the same hours, but the ban on consumption on the premises remains in force. However, there are no restrictions on home delivery services, which can be provided in accordance with all the protocols on safety and hygiene.
In Trentino, there are lots of activities you can safely enjoy in the open air, exploring woods, trails and lakes, while avoiding gatherings and rediscovering the joy of spending time outdoors, breathing in the scents of new blooms and tender greenery. While waiting for outdoor beaches, spas and gyms to reopen, you can enjoy the warmth and well-being offered by the wellness areas of our hotel facilities, which have reopened following the precise protocols already tested in the past seasons.
At long last, the cultural venues in our province will also be reopened, in compliance with all the necessary safety measures: for performances in cinemas and theatres, minimum safety distances and quotas will be adopted. Minimum safety distances will be required to enter museums, and for weekend access you will need to book your visit at least one day in advance, either by phone or online.

What should you do if you think you have COVID-19 symptoms?
If you have a fever, cough or difficulty in breathing or you suspect you have had close contact with a person affected by COVID-19, do not go to A&E or the medical clinics located throughout the territory! Inform management or the owner of the property where you are staying in order to contact the tourist medical service in the area as soon as possible, which will take action with the provincial body for Healthcare Services to carry out the medical examination in safety.
