What to Bring

• Comfortable walking shoes & socks

• A jacket for the rain

• Clothing in layers to accommodate the capricious weather

• An umbrella (though they’re cheap enough at the discount shops if you just buy one while here)

• Local currency – We’re on the Euro

• Your camera

• Sunglasses, for when it’s not raining

• Large enough purse to fit the basics, zip-top is helpful given the climate


Enough about me. What are you thinking?
