Traveling to Italy from France being a US citizen (Arriving in Rome on Sep16

Hi Everyone,
I am slightly confused as to what the requirements are for traveling to Italy. I am a fully vaccinated individual living in the US and i will be touring 5-6 countries in Europe for a period of 3.5 weeks starting on Labor Day. I will be arriving to Rome from Paris. Do i need to take the PCR test prior to my arrival in Italy or am i good considering that I have been vaccinated against the virus and i have a CDC-approved vaccination card with me. Could someone help me with this regard?

As of right now Italy doesn't require testing as long as you're vaccinated. This is for both the US and France, so you should be good to go with your CDC card and passenger locator form. However, according to the US embassy in Italy's website, that's only true until 8/30, so we just don't know yet if they're going to change the requirements after that.

If OP has been in countries other than France and US in past 14 days that advice may not apply

I am sorry but that statement just doesn't make any sense. Needs a better explanation. Why would you return to Paris to go to Rome? A day trip from Spain to Portugal? Where in Spain to where in Portugal? Seems to me that you are wasting a lot of time traveling when it is not necessary. Want am I missing??

Firstly, I have a 24 hour layover in Lisbon on my way to Barcelona while flying from the US. I will spent 5 days in Spain (dividing time) between Seville and Barcelona. I will fly to Nice from Barcelona and spend 3 days there before I head over to Paris for 2 days. (Already been to Paris before so no point in spending so much time there) From Paris, I will fly to Rome for 3 days and then fly out to Santorini from Rome for 3 days. From Santorini, I will fly to Zurich and spend 5 days in Swizerland before I fly back to US via Tap Air which has a 3 hour stopover in Lisbon. I know it’s a lot of traveling but I think it’ll be worth it.
