Covid-19: The Situation on Capri and the Amalfi Coast

This page is dedicated to the current situation on Capri and the Amalfi Coast. Though we try to summarize the travel and tourism situation in our area to the best of our knowledge, it's not always easy to stay abreast of the changing situation so please see the official government links below.

We hope that 2021 will bring a return to normality, with the freedom to travel worry-free without testing or quarantines!

Rules about Traveling to Italy from Abroad

Between December 21st and January 6th, travel between regions is forbidden. Visitors arriving from outside of Italy are required to self-isolate for 14 days.

For clarification about whether or not travelers are allowed into Italy, the best source of information is the Italian government's directives. Right now, anyone can enter Italy if they have been in another EU country for at least 14 days before crossing the border. Leisure travelers from the US and other non-EU nations are not allowed to enter Italy, with some exceptions. Regions classified as "red" cannot be visited (the classifications change almost weekly).

See updated rules about entering Italy here:

Those arriving from countries considered at risk due to high numbers of COVID-19 cases will be required to undertake a COVID test (swab or rapid test) at their arrival airport or other border crossing location. The list of countries from which testing is required changes constantly and also differs according to specific regions in Italy. Check before departure to find out if you are required to undergo a test upon arrival.

On Italy's Foreign Ministry website, you'll find a helpful questionnaire that provides general information about testing requirements.

It's a good idea to contact your local embassy for precise information about whether there are requirements regarding COVID testing or quarantining upon returning to your country of residence after visiting Italy.

The Situation on the Ground on Capri and the Amalfi Coast

Last update: 9 December, 2020

With COVID cases on the rise in Europe, the island of Capri and the towns along the Amalfi Coast have imposed a number of restrictive measures to contain the spread of the virus among visitors. In Italy masks must be worn both indoors and out. Restaurants, bars, and cafés must close earlier.

Travel on Capri

At the moment, there are no travel restrictions for Capri. Rapid Covid-19 testing may be required. We suggest booking your ferry tickets in advance.

Ferry schedules and online tickets

Buses and the funicular are running on Capri.

Current bus and funicular schedules on Capri

Sita public buses are currently running on limited capacity. There have been reported problems with crowds on buses, particularly at the beginning and end of the school day. We suggest arranging for alternative transportation.

Travel in Sorrento and the Sorrentine Peninsula

The Circumvesuviana train between Naples and Sorrento is running, but can often be crowded. Opt for a ferry between Naples and Sorrento (keep in mind that ferries are running at reduced schedules) or a private transfer, the safest option.

Travel to Pompeii, Herculaneum, and Mt. Vesuvius

All museums, archaeological sites, and exhibitions are currently closed. Pompeii, Herculaneum, and the Mt. Vesuvius National Park will remain closed until 3 December.
