Eurovision Song Contest 2022 in Italy: go by train

So, Italy won the the 2021 Eurovision Song Contest, in Rotterdam. Måneskin won thanks to the popular vote with their song ‘Zitti e buoni’. “Sit still and be good“. So, the ESC goes to Italy in 2022. But where and when?

So we can travel, but where to?

From today, we can travel to and from Belgium. That travel can be non-essential. But while we can leave Belgium for another member state of the European Union or  a member state of the Schengen Area, it is important to research which country is welcoming tourists.

Luxembourg, Vatican City, Monaco, San Marino, Singapore, Baarle-Hertog / Baarle-Nassau, Neutral Moresnet, Malta, Gibraltar. I love-love-love microstates, small nations and other quirks of geopolitical history.

Vatican City & The Vatican Museums

Luxembourg, Liechtenstein, Monaco, San Marino, Singapore, Baarle-Hertog / Baarle-Nassau, Neutral Moresnet, Malta, Gibraltar. I love-love-love microstates, small nations and other quirks of geopolitical history. Primus inter pares is of course the Vatican or Vatican City in Rome. Last time I went, was in 2016, with Steve.
