Is Italy still offering Covid testing at the train stations?

Hi Amazing traveling brain trust,

We are heading to Rome/ Florence in 4 days. A few weeks ago, in response to a different question I had, someone mentioned that Italy was offering Covid testing at the train stations. The person who offered that info wasn’t sure if that service was still going to be offered in September. Does anyone have any insight on this? Thank you!!!!

We are in Italy now. There was an Italian Red Cross tent in the Roma Termini and Napoli Centrale stations, but as stated above, the lines were very long. A woman on our Vatican tour said she had arrived an hour before opening time in Rome and was the first in line. We brought tests from home. I’ll report back on how that goes!

We’re in Rome now and saw a tent set up outside one of the pharmacies. No one in line. I asked how much it cost to get tested. Was told 22€. It was a rapid test.

Here now as well. After looking around, we will just get a test at any one of 3 or 4 pharmacies in the area of our hotel, show up, fill out a simple form, pay your 22 euro, results emailed to you in a couple hours or less. Planning on doing the test the day before we fly out.
