holidays on the safe side

Safe travel: South Tyrol has started a new, safe everyday life. Here you will find current information for your journey to Sesto.

THE CORONA VIRUS GUIDE
The coronavirus has changed many things. Ourselves, our behaviour - but also the environment in which we
live. Suddenly, we need to keep our distance from others. We have learned to smile with our eyes and to remember
#everythingwelove. Things that just a few short months ago we took for granted have now become much more important
and valuable to us. Freedom, community, health. We want to take care of that now! With mutual respect and
a healthy dose of caution. And then? Simply enjoy - our regained freedom, a feeling of lightheartedness, nature that
has had a chance to revive - and the increased appreciation of life’s small pleasures... This year we have the chance to
spend a more gentle, slower holiday, with consideration and thoughtfulness. Let us grasp this opportunity and take care -
of ourselves, of others, of nature! 

Enjoy your time in Sesto and stay healthy!

THE PLACE TO BE
There’s no question about it – in times like these in particular, Sesto in the holiday region 3 Zinnen Dolomites is the place to be. You’ll be very well taken care of here, with fresh, healthy mountain air, magnificent views that do your spirits good and plenty of room to move around freely in the beautiful landscape. Naturally all of our property owners and service providers are extremely well informed and concerned with ensuring they maintain the highest standards of safety and hygiene. However, it is important to remember that everyone has a part to play!

THE GOLDEN RULES
Three simple rules of conduct have been put in place in South Tyrol for interacting with others in a healthy, respectful and safe way:

KEEP YOUR DISTANCE
The specified minimum safe distance to be kept between people who are not from the same household is one metre.

PROTECT YOUR AIRWAYS
If it is not possible to keep to the minimum distance, then it is mandatory to wear a mask to protect your respiratory
tract – including outdoors. In all public areas and enclosed spaces (shops, public transport and cable cars) as well as when entering restaurants and bars, it is compulsory to cover the mouth and nose with a mask.

HYGIENE

Thorough hand washing and the regular use of the hand sanitiser that is available in all public spaces is recommended.

REGULATED INTERACTION
In your accommodation and in all public areas (shops, restaurants, bars, public transport, cable cars etc.) the minimum prescribed distance of two metres must be adhered to - except, of course, for members of your household! At check-in you
will be notified about the specific safety measures that must be complied with in your accommodation - there are differences
in this respect due to the amount of space available, the services on offer and procedures in place: for example access
to the buffet and spa complex, etc.


RECREATIONAL ACTIVITIES
In order to ensure compliance with the minimum distances, many processes have had to be rearranged and reorganised.
This means that when it comes to recreational activities in particular, there may be waiting times and delays. Plan
enough time and find out in advance about the applicable regulations, opening times and possibilities.
There are fewer spaces available on public transport due to the distance regulations. Find out about alternative, more
environmentally friendly options: many journeys can be combined with a nice walk or be done by (rented) bike...
Plan your hikes and mountain tours carefully and act responsibly. There may be delays and queues for public transport and there will be fewer spaces available in the mountain refuge huts.


CABEL CARS
The Monte Elmo cable car will carry fewer people this year, which may potentially result in passengers having to wait longer. All other gondolas carry only household groups together. Naturally, precautions will be taken to ensure the minimum distances and hygiene regulations are adhered to - nevertheless, to avoid queues and gatherings of people, tickets can and should be purchased online in advance.

AVOID LITTERING
Of course, health and safety take precedence! However it is still important to try to avoid unnecessary littering - or at least to properly dispose of waste. Naturally it is essential to use the required single-use gloves when shopping or at the breakfast buffet - but in some areas there are alternatives - for example, always take your own personal mask with you. And if you have not already got one, then Sesto-style washable varieties are available in the Tourist Information Office in Sesto...
