Hi All,

I've just joined Slow Europe, after friends (ArtnBarb) referred me to a thread here. I was part of Slow Travel (I think it was) years ago, and haven't been on travel forums much since it closed.

My wife and I quit work at the end of Feb 2020, just in time to 'stay home' for 18 months. All the big travel plans went 'poof' pretty quickly. We were both landscape architects, and have always been dedicated travellers. Europe has been our focus, and Italy the main destination for the last 15 years or so. An Italian passport, house and some modest language skills have been the result.

As we're two weeks away from a return to Italy this seems like perfect timing to get back onto a travel forum.

As a fellow Canadian, I will be interested to hear your travel experiences to Italy from Canada...ie: which CV19 tests and proof did you have to show and where, both in Canada leaving and arriving, and the same in Italy.

A good request and reminder. I will certainly share our experiences with the community. At this point, we're taking the BC Gov't immunization 'card' on our phones and as paper print outs. I also have photos of the actual little sticky things that we got at the pharmacy after we received our Astrazenica shots. A test the day before we leave as well.

Some persons have said that they have printed out the latest Italian gov't ruling in Italian and in English. I'll do that as well, but I think that will be more for museums, restaurants and trains.

At the moment I'm more concerned about Covid Green Pass compatibility than actually entering the country. Not sure if there is a thread about this already, but I'll certainly start one if necessary.
