What type of purse do you carry when sightseeing?

Jump to last reply

Ladies, what type of purse do you carry when sightseeing and shopping? We will be travelling to Italy for the first time in March with our two kids (ages 12 and 9).

When at home I usually carry a medium size purse that I can sling over my shoulder and can usually fit brochures or any smaller purchases we might make.

I am sure several hours of sightseeing and carrying a purse like that will give me a back/shoulder ache and I also worry about the ease of someone taking it.

Today in a travel store I saw a nice leather bag made by HOBO. It slung nicely across the chest and laid flat by my side. It has a place for all cards, documents, money etc. so would not have to bring a wallet.but was very narrow, i.e. nothing very thick would fit inside. Before I purchase anything thought I would ask what you experienced travellers like to carry.

Thanks for any advice.
