VACCINATIONS yes or no for TRAVELING to ITALY
Thefts: watch out for pickpockets especially in tourist areas. Be careful also with the car, always leave it well closed and with nothing in sight. Do not open the trunk if there are suitcases inside when leaving the car parked.
Driving: Italian driving is something special: it is quite normal for them to get half a meter away from your car if they want to overtake you. Therefore, it is better to always drive on the right and move to the left lane only for overtaking and always keep a safe distance from the car in front. Be extremely careful when driving in cities, especially in Naples, where the driving of the locals is somewhat “random”.
Both are very good travel insurances and therefore we recommend them to you. Both are very easy to purchase online and you will receive a confirmation email with all the coverages and ways to contact them in case anything happens.

Yes, some vaccinations are recommended for visiting Italy. The WHO and ISTM recommend the following vaccinations: typhoid, hepatitis A, hepatitis B, MMR (measles, mumps and rubella), meningitis, and influenza.
“Personalized attention””The attention received from Madelyn, Lic. in Nursing at Passport Healt, was very pleasant and enriching, because she informs about the minor vaccinations and recommendations for the trip and also consider some observations to avoid risks at the destination.”

Italy: how to set up your itinerary, documentation, requirements
After entering Italy, citizens who have the Argentine Vaccination Card that proves they have a complete vaccination cycle with vaccines recognized by the European Medicines Authority (EMA) will be exempted from any isolation.
On the other hand, Argentineans who do not have a Vaccination Card or have been vaccinated in our country with doses of Sputnik, Sinopharm or Cansino, after entering Italy must undergo a five (5) days isolation and an antigenic or molecular swabbing at the end of such period.
From the above, and due to the misinformation circulating in this regard, we wish to emphasize that those who have vaccines not recognized by EMA, may enter Italy, since having vaccination is NOT an exclusionary entry requirement.
Since January 10, 2009, the Italian government has increased restrictions on mobility and recreational and work activities for unvaccinated persons, as a consequence of which neither Italians nor foreigners are allowed to enter hotels, museums, restaurants or use urban or interurban means of transport – whether by rail, air or sea – without a European Vaccination Certificate, also known as a reinforced Green Pass.
