Last Minute Packing Tips for Italy and Ireland

Jump to last reply

DH and I are departing for parts of Italy and Ireland this week and I am looking for some last minute tips on what and how to pack for multiple flights (some with discount airlines) and temperatures ranging from 36C in Rome to 20+C in Ireland and probable rain. We are also hopping around a bit....6 days in Rome (convention), 9 days in Ireland with a rental car and then a flight back to Pisa and trains to Cinque Terre, Florence and back to Rome for our flight home. I am sure the veteran travellers are already shaking their heads and are ready to jump on here and say "change your flights, rearrange your trip, Are you crazy??" Unfortunately, sometimes you do what you have to do and consequently our travel plans are what they are!!

We are going with carry on luggage only which generally means a roll aboard and a backpack as a personal item. We have run into one small glitch and just rechecked the Ryanair and found out that we are restricted to one carryon each (no personal item allowed). Some items that are "must haves" for us are: iPad, 2 cameras (one point and shoot and DSLR), and noise cancelling headphones. When it comes to clothing we both prefer to dress casual and don't have to carry dress clothes for the convention. The dilemma is what to take for the temperature differences and if there are any clothing or footwear items we should not forget.

I'm looking forward to hearing from all those well-travelled people who might have some suggestions!!!
