Winter coat? Windbreaker? Rain gear? What?

Jump to last reply

My husband and I and our four boys ages 9 - 17 are taking our first overseas trip to Italy leaving Feb. 22 and returning Mar. 4.

Between the weather forecast and the other forums on Italy's weather in Feb, I'm not exactly sure what we should be packing for outerwear or outdoor gear (umbrellas, hats, etc).

We live in Fargo - so we are used to the cold. Any suggestions on what to take would be so appreciated.

Another thing - I'd really like us to get by on carry-ons only. Do you think this is reasonable?

Thank you in advance everyone!
