Excellent, thanks a lot. Whereabouts in Veneto are you?

This Wind deal is perfect for me and I wouldn't drop it. I'll go into a Wind shop when I get back and see to it; I remember now I was scammed some years ago (provider Vodafone) - tempted into clicking a link that led to "buying" ring tones. Went to the Telecoms Police; waste of time.
However, don't want to clog up this thread.
BTW. Nationwide Pathology still haven't provided my Day 2 test result and I start back today.

I’ve been told different information by different people at the pharmacy so a bit anxious about it.
Yes. The pharmacy were very efficient; produced a test certificate (with my passport details) in Italian and English within 15 minutes; and charged 20 Euro.

Hospital District 1, Belluno. The pharmacy I used, Vetronelli(?), is in Farra D'Alpago.
My experience was as Stanley's.

Were you asked for your passport details in advice or did you just take them along with you?

And another thing. I have said my data roaming was not operative in Scotland: on the return, the phone gave a "ping" as soon as I reached Carlisle and I had data from then on!
Is GB trying-out its new cyber warfare capability on the Scots?😎
