The European Union has announced today (5/19/21) that they have agreed to allow quarantine-free travel for vaccinated tourists and visitors from countries considered safe. Travelers who have received vaccines from Pfizer, Moderna, and Johnson & Johnson will not have to quarantine before or after arriving in Europe. The approval of this proposal will be finalized this week and plans on how this will be rolled out country-by-country are expected to follow. (You can read the full article here.)
Europe to reopen for travel is great news! We are eager to hear what the details are for entry but we can most likely assume that the digital green certificate indicating that you are fully vaccinated will be expanded to include U.S. citizens, making it easy to provide proof of vaccine without having to hang on to your paper vaccine card everywhere you go.
In hopes that this would be the case, we had rescheduled our European tours from last year to this coming fall. If you are ready to start planning your travel, we have spaces available on the following trips:
- Belgium Beer Tour – September 13 – 19, 2021
- Tuscany Wine + Music Adventure with Mindi Abair – November 1 – 5, 2021
- Tuscany Food & Wine Tour – November 6 – 12, 2021
- *Next Summer* Spain Food & Wine Tour – June 23 – 28, 2022
Or you can book your own private tour for any of our itineraries where you gather your group and choose your own dates.
We’d love to have you join us and resume doing what we love to do most – traveling the world and savoring every moment of it!
