Italy will reopen to European tourist on June 3. It will also scrap the recommended 14-day quarantine period.

Italy was one of the first European countries to implement lockdown measures, but has been easing these restrictions over the last two weeks.

People from the Schengen Area will also be allowed to visit Italy.

Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte enforced an early lockdown to counter a pandemic that has so far killed more than 31,500 people in Italy.

The Prime Minister has resisted calls from some regions to open sooner, and has instead lifted measures gradually fearing a second wave of the virus.
