Latest Updates on Travel Restrictions
We have put together the following country-by-country guide (CLICK HERE) on the latest situation on the ground in Europe, as it re-emerges from enforced lockdown and international travel gets back underway. Here you will find a detailed and more up-to-date understanding of what travel currently means, points that should be taken into consideration, measures and restrictions still in place, and safety precautions to protect travellers.
If you have more specific enquiries about the latest situation, please do not hesitate to get in touch with us. We endeavour to keep this guide accurate and regularly updated, but the frequently changing nature of the situation across a large number of countries, each with different rules and advice, means that we cannot always guarantee this information is the most up-to-date.

The origins of prosecco earn UNESCO recognition
In a country where the competition in the wine market couldn’t be stronger, it takes something to really stand out. Prosecco’s steep rise to become the most popular Italian wine abroad is no mean task and UNESCO have recognised the scale of these impressive achievements. The beautiful hilly landscapes of Conegliano and Valdobbiadene, with their lush terraced vineyards, were among several new sites added to the UNESCO World Heritage List earlier this month. Centuries of agriculture dedicated to prosecco viticulture are now rewarded with a befitting status, and visitors usually drawn to the more well-known vineyards can expect to be tempted to the north-eastern corner of the country.
Ready for Take Off!
Passengers throughout California and the wider region can gear up for fresh new flights into Italy. From April 3, Air Italy will be running direct flights four times a week between Los Angeles and Milan Malpensa, with an additional route between San Francisco and Milan Malpensa opening a week later (the only direct flight between San Francisco and any destination in Italy), doubling the existing number of US gateways that included New York and Miami already. All the flights are to be operated with the new Airbus A330-200, with up to 24 seats in Business Class providing the comfort of signature Italian cuisine, complimentary WiFi and more. Not only does this represent a great opportunity to experience the historic city of Milan, a European capital of fashion, but also an opportunity to explore the surrounding area of the Italian Lakes, the Riviera or even the Swiss Alps.
Celebrate the Oldest Vine in the World!
The arrival of the harvest season in the Eastern Slovenian region of Styria is a cause of celebration for the locals, as they take to the streets to pay tribute to their rich wine tradition.

A series of cultural and gastronomic events and programmes unfold throughout October, culminating in the unforgettable St Martin's Day celebrations on November 11th.
