Is wearing a hat in Rome a fashion faux-pas?

Jump to last reply

I know that this may be an annoying question to some but I've not been able to find an answer to my question. Should tourists who do not wish to stand out as tourists wear hats in the middle of August while sightseeing? I've looked on multiple threads and various travel sites and all I could determine is that tourists should not wear baseball caps or silly berets. Being that my DH is follically challenged and that I absolutely need some protection from the sun and that the sun will be very intense during August what are our options?

I've not been able to find any information regarding hats...only that we shouldn't wear clothing that reveals our shoulders, knees and toes! LOL! And that our fashion should be dictated by current Italian fashion, as say some, or by comfort, so say others.

So the question is...to hat or not to hat?
