Packing for Italy in July

Jump to last reply

I know I have LOTS of time to think about this - but I'm excited about my first trip to Italy & starting to think about what I might want to pack. I will be going on a tour and staying in very good hotels. I know it will be HOT in Italy in July - are shorts okay for touring - or do I really need slacks & skirts, etc.? Any tips for looking put together but still being cool & comfortable. I'm in my mid-fifties and not thin - although not huge either.

Has anyone ever used a PacSafe Sling style purse? I guess they have lots of security features to help ward off the pick pockets in Italy. I don't want to have sore shoulders from lugging a big bag around with me everywhere I go - but I know I'll need to have some things with me during the day. What do you think I'll need to carry around?

I've been thinking about purchasing an international mini flat iron (for my hair) from Travelsmith. The prices seem high from that company. Does anyone know of another good source?
