Rome, Italy, Aug 20, 2021 / 10:34 am
Proof of coronavirus vaccination or a negative COVID-19 test is now required for tourists who wish to visit the Duomo in Florence, St. Mark’s Basilica in Venice, and many of Italy’s most famous Catholic cathedrals.
Italy implemented earlier this month a digital COVID-19 vaccination certificate called the “Green Pass” that is required for all indoor dining, gyms, museums, theaters, concert venues, and tourist attractions.
The Italian Green Pass is valid if a person can submit proof of vaccination, recovery from a prior case of COVID-19, or a negative swab test result from the past 48 hours.
Among the locations requiring the pass are many historic Catholic churches which charge tourists ticket fares to view the inside of the church.
