Do UK citizens need a visa to travel to Italy?

UK citizens do not need a visa to travel to Italy for stays of up to 90 days in any 180-day period for tourism or to attend business meetings. Visits to other countries which are part of the Schengen Area (Austria, Belgium, Czech Republic, Croatia, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Iceland, Italy, Latvia, Liechtenstein, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, and Switzerland) within the 180 days previous to your arrival in Italy count towards your 90 days.

If you are planning to stay in Italy for more than 90 days or to work or study, or for any purpose other than tourism, you will need to apply for a visa before traveling. This can be done through your local Italian embassy or consulate in the UK. You will need to provide documentation including a valid passport (it is recommended that your passport has at least six months of validity remaining after your planned date of departure from Italy), proof of sufficient funds to support your stay, and a reason for your stay in Italy.

It is advisable to check the latest travel advice from the UK government and the Italian authorities before planning any trip to Italy.
