Travel on Italian territory is strictly regulated. Restrictions may apply and formalities may be necessary. We invite you to visit your country Ministry of Foreign Affairs website to check its instruction of International Travel and to visit your country Embassy in Italy website.

In Italy, as the situation is changing rapidly, we invite you to follow the evolution of the instructions of the Italian governments, of the local authorities, in particular those relating to confinement (in particular on the site of the Italian Ministry of Health, in Italian), to inform yourself calling the Italian free number 1500 and consult the FAQs on the website of the French Embassy in Italy, on the website of the French Ministry of Foreign Affairs and on the website of the Italian Ministry of Foreign Affairs (in Italian).

HEALTH MEASURES ON BOARD

To allow you to travel quietly and with respect for “barrier gestures” and physical distancing measures, Thello implements a series of measures on board its trains.

Even by train, we can respect “barrier gestures” and limit the spread of the virus!

 

To facilitate physical distancing on board Thello trains: a chessboard placement

In order to allow you to comply with the rules for physical distance on board our trains, we have modified our policy for allocating seats.

Henceforth, only one seat out of two can be occupied in a chessboard arrangement. A marking indicates the seats which must not be occupied.

Chessboard placement in a second-class coach

You will have no one next to you, in front of or behind you. In particular, in the seats side by side, you will not have a neighbour. And in the squares, two passengers will be placed diagonally.

This rule applies to all passengers, including your traveling companions.

When booking, the system will automatically allocate seats in a checkerboard arrangement. If you have decided to choose your seats using the Seatmap, you will only be able to select the available seats identified in green.

For the health of all, we thank you for strictly respecting the seats which have been allocated to you.

Passengers with a subscription without reservation are invited to occupy the available places not indicated by the marking to comply with this chessboard arrangement and the rules of physical distance.

 

To wash your hands regularly: provision of hand sanitizer

So that you can wash your hands regularly and as soon as you need it, hand sanitizer is available on board.

 

To limit contacts and groupings: the bar service is closed

To limit contacts and groupings, we regret that we cannot provide catering services.

 

To welcome you safely: strict health precautions on board

Our onboard staff wear masks and gloves and strive to respect “barrier gestures”.

In addition, our trains are disinfected with specific products before each departure from the terminal (Nice and Milan).
