Traveling to Italy? Pack These 6 Things

You have officially booked your trip to Italy and are eagerly counting down the days. Traveling to Italy is a life-changing experience, and you will need to pack accordingly. You will need to consider the timeframe that you are going in and what is seasonally appropriate. We have gathered the top seven items you should pack for every season. 

Comfortable Footwear

Having the proper footwear when traveling to Italy is essential as you may be doing a lot of different activities. You will be doing a lot of walking in particular, so it is necessary to pack comfortable shoes. Sneakers, although very comfortable, can be a sure-fire sign that you are a tourist and you have you standing out from the crowd. Many travelers instead opt for comfy flats. Remember- old cobbled roads and high heels do NOT mix well.

A Power Adapter

Italian outlets and US electronic cords do not match. And if you bring an adapter with you, you may not be able to charge or plug in your essentials. How can you take gorgeous pictures without your smartphone? You will need a power adaptor that is designed explicitly for Italian outlets. If you do not get the correct adapter, your electronics wont be able to charge, or in a worst-case scenario, become fried.

Nightlife Outfit

The nightlife in Italy is like no other. You will need the right outfits to enjoy the nightlife, whether at a bar or restaurant. You should be comfortable on vacation, but you will need to have at least one stylish outfit for a night on the town. A popular outfit choice for women is a jumpsuit as it can be easily dressed up or dressed down. Traveling to Italy should be an exciting time, and you will want to be comfortable and stylish while you are there. 

Filtered Water Bottle

Tap water is very commonly used in Italy, which is not something that many other countries are accustomed to drinking. Having a filtered water bottle on you can ease your mind wondering what is or is not in your water. It will also save you money on buying plastic water bottles which in turn helps the environment. 

Travel-Sized Soaps

You may be inclined to pack your full bottles of shampoo and conditioners. Over, this can cause several issues. There are restrictions on the amount of liquid you can take. You will also have to consider that these can break and cause quite a mess in your luggage. Instead, it is recommended to take bar shampoo or at least a mixture of bar shampoo and liquid shampoo, depending on the length of your stay. 

A Small Travel Bag

You will need a small bag for essentials such as a fanny pack or mini backpack while you explore Italy. Make sure it has a zipper to keep your valuables safe, such as your passport and wallet.
