Christmas and new year restrictions

With only two people allowed per household Christmas and New Year will be more sombre events than usual....

Red Zone restrictions will be in place across Italy as of 24th to 27th December (inclusive), 31st December to 3rd January (inclusive), and 5th to 6th January (inclusive).
During this period people can leave their homes only for reasons of work, necessity and health and only within their own local municipalities (comune). They are also obliged to carry with them an auto-certification form justifying their reason for being out and about.
Only essential shops will be open and bars and restaurants will remain closed.
The rules will however allow people during this period to receive a maximum of two guests, not including children under the age of 14, in their homes.
On those week days that are not public holidays or the eve of public holidays – 28th to 30th December (inclusive) and 4th January – a nationwide orange zone will be enforced: Bars and restaurants will remain shut with takeaway service only and non-essential shops will be open until 21.00.
Movement between different comune remains restricted to reasons of work, necessity and health, but no auto-certification form is required to justify movement.
A curfew from 22:00 to 05:00 will remain in place throughout the entire period.

MY CORTONA

MY CORTONA WAS DUE TO BE LAUNCHED DURING EASTER 2020. UNFORTUNATELY, FOR EVERYONE, COVID 19 MADE AN APPEARANCE.


Our blog had been intended as a central hub for Cortona lovers world-wide, bringing you useful information, profiles of the many interesting people who live & visit the town, up-dates on local news, special stories & upcoming events

With the world still reeling from the pandemic, we have chosen to suspend some features & have decided instead, - at least for now - to bring you a limited version of our blog by introducing a series called MOMENTS.

We would love you to contribute!

We also thought that in the absence of an imminent visit, you might enjoy a little Local news and a few Tips for (future) Trips
We look forward to seeing you soon!
