Italy reopened its borders to European travellers on Wednesday as the country attempts to rescue its tourism industry.
However there are fears in Italy that people may be put off visiting, with neighbouring countries keeping restrictions on travel from the country even as they open up to other European nations.
It now faces the challenge of enticing visitors back, as it looks to the summer holiday season as a possible route to some sort of economic recovery. Italy is currently facing the worst recession since the Second World War.
However, there are fears that people from neighbouring countries that would usually visit will be staying away this year.
On the same date Austria will open its borders with Germany, Switzerland, the Czech Republic, Slovakia and Hungary - but not Italy. Last week its health minister called Italy a “hot spot”.
