Welcome to the first week of the Italian Summer Vacation Series! I can already see us walking through the colorful streets of Burano, eating gelato in Rome, and relaxing sea side in Positano. But, first things first. What do we need to pack!? If you are planning your first trip to Italy, this is a great checklist to have (Plus I just love the little things that help keep me organized).
We decided to travel through Italy Backpacker style. It was really convenient not to have to haul big luggages around when trying to catch a train or bus to the next destination.
Download the checklist below, print it out, and get excited for your trip! The weather ranges a bit from northern to southern Italy, so even when planning for summer, you’ll still have to pack a few things for cooler and possibly rainy weather in the north and also beach dresses and bikinis for when you head south towards the Amalfi coast.
Monday we’ll be starting off our trip with a visit to Venice! Check back then to find out where all the best sights are 🙂
