    For me there were tons of things I was SO happy that I brought with me. I bought granola bars and thank goodness because the food in Italy didn’t always fit my diet. Make sure you definitely bring basic medical things you may need because they aren’t always easy to find there. Bring things like tylenol and cold pills and what not. I also got some extreme bug bites in Italy (even in the middle of January) so I would recommend some bug spray. It was also quite warm so if you are going in the summer I’d highly recommend some sun screen, sunglasses, stuff like that.

    Another thing you should definitely bring…some nice clothes. Like sassy going out to clubs kind of clothing. I brought a lot of jeans and casual stuff so when everyone went out at night I felt like a bum. (FYI shoes in Italy were insanely expensive…clothing in general is a lot more than it is here in the US)

    Don’t forget to bring tons of film and your appetite for Gelati because Italy is amazing!
