Packed Luggage



Pack light: Carry on bag + handbag or personal bag

Carry on Bag usually has to be under 7kg. Less luggage makes transport so much easier, especially if sharing rides or taking the train. 

The temperature in Aqui Terme should range between 16°C (61°F) at night to 28°C (82°F)  - warm days and cool nights however, it can occasionally be cooler or hotter, so layers are important.


Cultural Considerations: While Italy is quite liberal, it’s respectful to dress modestly when visiting religious or cultural sites.


This list is not exhaustive and we will be adding to it if something new pops up... but feel free to use it as a starting point for your suitcase!
