Sunscreen Tips (3)

Bring Sun Glasses and Caps

Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear although the best time to visit The Eternal City of Rome is in summer and the spring, it is best to bring a comfortable hat to shade you head and face from the heat that you would not notice if there is cold weather and also bring sunglasses to reduce glare when you are walking to make your Roman experience more enjoyable and to reduce the Ultraviolet Rays that cause the glare when you are walking along the open areas of Rome as many of the attractions such as the Roman Forum and the Colosseum are located in Open Areas.

Sunscreen and Good Shoes

Luggage and bags Good luggage with wheels for the cobblestone. And extra compact bag for bringing home souveniers.

Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear Shoes! Good Shoes. There is lots of cobblestone in Rome. Fabulous scarf for those chilly nights. Pay attention to how the locals wear them. So chic.

Toiletries and Medical Supplies Sunscreen, Hat

Photo Equipment Good camera batteries and film. So much cheaper and easier to find at home.

Miscellaneous Washcloth. The hotels in Italy don't have them. In fact they only have one large bath towel then several hand towels that are made out of the same type of cloth that I would compare to cloth napkins. This was the case for the three hotels where we stayed in Italy. Also, bring a good language guide.

Sunscreen and shoes

Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear Definitely bring a couple pairs of comfortable shoes. I generally wear one pair during the day and the second in the evening to give my feet a break. The next day, I wear the second pair all day and the first pair all evening.

Miscellaneous Even though you are in the city, it is very wise to wear sunscreen in Rome in the summer. Places like the Forum have very little shade and can be very hot during the day.
