    Some like it hot

    by Bunsch Written Jun 18, 2011

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Miscellaneous: Although things tend to cool off at night, if you're an American and used to air conditioning which gets really COLD, you may find that it is well worth your while to bring a small battery-powered fan with you, or to purchase a slightly larger fan which has the appropriate plug for Italian current. I brought two of the former and we never did get around to buying the latter -- but we certainly would have been much more comfortable had we done so, and at minimal cost. Our A/C at the Hotel Verdi was pretty anemic and I used the personal fan until the batteries ran out.

    Laundry facilities are hard to find

    by Bunsch Written Sep 22, 2010

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Miscellaneous: Given the paucity of laundromats -- I never found one -- it is probably wise to bring along a small bottle of laundry detergent (though shampoo will do in a pinch), clothes pins and laundry line. You can wash out your "smalls" each night in the sink, and periodically launder larger items when you have access to a bathtub.

    If you're used to wash cloths, bring them

    by Bunsch Written Sep 10, 2010

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Miscellaneous: Our hotel in Parma included bath towels and hand towels, but not what we Americans call "wash cloths" (a small towel used to wash one's face). Luckily, my friend had brought a supply which could be left behind in each city, and I brought Olay's excellent cleansing tissues because that's what I use back in Rhode Island. But if you're younger than we are and dislike using a corner of your bath towel to wash your face, you might think about packing something you wouldn't mind discarding after your visit.

    GUIDES  TO  PARMA

    Miscellaneous: Don't forget to buy a good map of Parma (if you are driving there) and a guide. You can do it in Parma - I found guides to Parma in a few most popular languages (including Japanese :-).
