What travel documents do I need to travel abroad for the summer of 2024? 
For international travel, including a trip to Italy, U.S. citizens need a valid passport.

Make sure your passport is valid for at least six months beyond your planned departure date. It's also recommended to stay informed about any travel advisories or restrictions that may be in place due to global events, health concerns, or other factors. The U.S. Department of State's website and the official website of the Embassy or Consulate of Italy in the United States are good sources for up-to-date information. Keep in mind that travel requirements can change, so it's essential to verify the latest information closer to your travel date. Italy may be implementing an EES/ETIAS by summer of 2024.
