Just when you thought you were doomed to a hermit’s life, the world begins to reopen! Of course, caution is still needed and ‘open’ does not mean pre-Covid norms.
Luís Araújo, president of the European Travel Commission, emphasized in a statement that safety and security are still priorities. He also said that travelers should check national tourism office websites for information about rules from country to country. Try the Re-Open E.U. app or Visit Europe website to start.
Expect that you will need to make advance reservations for popular tourist sites. That means that advance planning and research is an absolute must. For example, everyone visiting the Louvre must book a time slot for their visit, and all payments at the museum must be made with a credit card.

Travelers will certainly navigate post-COVID Europe with more confidence if they learn a language such as French or Spanish. Imagine how much less time it will take to ask a stranger for directions while wearing a mask and standing a few feet away! Another huge bonus is that you will enjoy deeper travel experiences.
