Measure aims to encourage the return of tourists to Sicily after the pandemic

Italy was one of countries most affected by the new coronavirus. As an attempt to revive local tourism if the pandemic is brought under control in the near future, the paradise island of Sicily is offering travelers a great incentive.

In a statement released, the local government committed to paying half of travelers' air tickets and a third of hotel reservations for all tourists visiting the destination. In addition, admission to museums and attractions will also be free.

Although it seems unlikely, the measure was a solution found to encourage tourists to return to visit the Italian region. It is estimated that since the beginning of the pandemic, Sicily has lost more than a billion euros due to the shutdowns.

For those interested in receiving the benefit, the website of the local tourism entity, visit Sicily, will make vouchers available once the country's borders have reopened.

There is still no forecast for the return of tourist activities in the country, but there is already some effort to make it happen gradually. With a gradual return, some Italian restaurants will already be able to reopen their doors from May 4th.
