September weather in Paris, Bern, Como, Cinque Terre, Venice.

Jump to last reply

I should mention I am a newby for forums / blogs. I hope that once I have asked my question, I can figure out how to get back here to read the answers to my questions.

3 of us are venturing to the above cities (plus others) starting the 15th of September. I am wondering if we need to take rain coats or jackets especially since some of our visit will include Bern and Como. We are concerned as to how cool should we expect? I know that no one can predict the weather, but what is typical for those areas?

We are all going to do with 1 piece of carry-on luggage plus a tote to make our lives as easy as we can. That doesn't allow for very many pieces of clothing that aren't multi-funtion. We are all in our 60's. I read that someone said not to do yoga pants and that makes me sad because they are so easy to wear and I also thought they would / could serve dual purpose.

I am planning on 1 pair of jeans, 2 pair of black slacks, (1 was going to be yoga), 1 pr of black crops, 3 different easy jackets / sweaters that can be worn either as jackets (over 6 or so blouses / tops / tanks) or can be worn as a blouse itself. I hope I can also fit in 3 pair of shoes, pj's, medications, and of course make-up (so I can be seen in public).

We are so excited about our plans. We surely don't want to be cold and miserable in our travels, but can only take so much if we are indeed going to stick with our plan for only 1 small suitcase. So what do you all think? Can I do it or do I need to rethink the clothes and go with heavier / warmer items?
