Packing list "extras" - what to take for Venice/Florence

Jump to last reply

Longtime lurker, first time poster...

My wife and I are heading to Italy in just under a month to celebrate our 25th. The itin is Milan for 2 days, Venice for 6 days, Florence for 7 days, and Naples for 3 days. And so, I have spent the better part of the last year pouring through trip reports from Peter, Ann and Ellen, and have thoroughly enjoyed every post, and made many notes (OK, I copied everything into a spreadsheet, I'm a geek...). We even made arrangements for the Venice kayak trip based on one of Peter's posts. We are not planning on doing much cooking, and may try to get to the beach a few times, otherwise normal sightseeing

My question is what to take? Not the clothing part, lots of posts on that, but the other sundries, that we would want, and may not want buy there because of cost or availability. Like a wine key (corkscrew), sunscreen, flashlight?...

What have you taken that was invaluable, and what was a bust? Thoughts?

Dave
