Sicily Wants To Lure Tourists By Helping Pay For Flights And Hotels Post-Lockdown

Sicily’s original scheme, baptized "Empty for Full," would launch once Italy reopens its borders. Vouchers for discounted flights, hotels and free museum tickets will be made available via the island’s official website, Visit Sicily.

And for every three nights, one free," reports Business Insider Italia based on the statement by Manlio Messina, Sicily’s tourism director, who announced that “there will be 400,000 vouchers for discounts and giveaways to encourage holiday-makers who despite coronavirus fears, decide to go to the island.”
