The world famous Uffizi gallery in Florence will reopen on Wednesday, according to an announcement on its website.
It’s the latest in the list of Italian monuments and museums to reopen as the country gradually lifts coronavirus restrictions.
Vatican Museums, which host the Sistine Chapel, have welcomed the public again starting Monday, as has the Coliseum, but under strict rules such as temperature checks for visitors, compulsory face coverings and maintaining distance during the visit.
Travelers from the European Union and the UK will be allowed to enter Italy without having to go into quarantine starting Wednesday, in a move the government has described as a “calculated risk.”
Visitors were previously required to undergo a two-week quarantine before being allowed entry.
