So, in an effort to rebuild, the country has launched its ‘Visit Sicily’ initiative which will give travellers a chance to experience a post-COVID holiday… for a fraction of the price.

Basically, Italy will be paying for people to take a vacation, which is incredible and insane, but people do crazy things when they’ve lost over a billion dollars. Sounds like a decent vacation to us!

“This is the time of waiting, a necessary time. Let’s stay at home and while waiting, let’s make plans, let’s dream and travel with imagination,” they say on their website.
