Italy will drop its requirement for fully vaccinated Britons to quarantine from next week.

UK travellers who have been double jabbed and provide a negative coronavirus test will be able to enter the country without self-isolating from Tuesday.

The negative PCR or antigen coronavirus test must have been taken 48 hours before arriving in Italy - and it must have been at least 14 days since the second vaccine dose was administered.

Those who are not fully vaccinated must still quarantine for 10 days, and take a Covid-19 test on or before day two and on or after day eight following their arrival.

Italy is on the UK’s amber travel list meaning arrivals from the country to the UK must take a test three days before travelling and another after arriving.

Italy reported 54 coronavirus-related deaths on Saturday, compared with 45 the day before, the health ministry said, while the daily tally of new infections fell to 6,860 from 7,826.

Teachers and people attending indoor events in Italy must now show a ‘Green’ pass which proves they have been vaccinated.

The controversial pass has led to protests across the country.
