    Bring warm things if you plan the caves

    by Trekki Updated Aug 12, 2013

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Luggage and bags: If you want to visit the old cities and might need to park “outisde” or walk from train/bus stations to your accommodation, I would recomment that you bring luggage on wheels or backpacks, they are easier to carry on the often cobblestoned roads.

    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Definitely bring shoes with which you are comfortable for walking. Often, the roads are steep and often they have cobblestones. Your feet will be grateful in the evening. Bring warm clothes, even in summer, as the temperature in the valleys might get colder than at the coast. Umbrella or raincoat might be a good idea, depending on the season. If you want to visit churches, bring something to cover arms and legs, as you might not be let in with unappropriate clothes. If you plan to visit the caves of Frasassi, you should bring a warm sweater, as it is cold inside throughout the whole year (as in every cave).

    Toiletries and Medical Supplies: There are enough pharmacies where you can get medical supply. Bring translation for prescriptions. You might like to bring first aid kits with band-aid, as you might have blisters from walking. Foot cream is a good idea, too. My feet were happy in the evening with this :-)

    Photo Equipment: The most magic impressions throughout whole Marche are the churches and other buildings. Many of them have ornaments, sculptures and other details where you would need a good tele lens.

    Camping/Beach/Outdoor Gear: In case you want to stay at the driatic Sea, bring equipment. You know what you need for a camping tirp :-). If you plan to hike, bring all your equipment, as it is most unlikely to find places where you can rent tents and the other stuff.

    Miscellaneous: Binoculars are a good idea, for wildlife watching or looking at the building details. Maybe a torch as well, as depending where you go, streets might not be lit appropriately. Italian dictionary is also a good idea.

    mind the pebble beaches: bring beach sandals

    by call_me_rhia Updated Oct 16, 2002

    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Beach sandals for the beach can be nice to have, since the Marche have pebble beaches. A swimsuit is handy to go swimming in the sea, and a sun lotion can't really hurt either.
    people dress up casually enough (that is, italian casual), so nothing fancy is actually needed.
