Packing for Italy: 3 Weeks & Carry-on Only
If you think carry-on only for a three-week trip is impossible, just pack for one week and make sure all the clothes you bring are plug-and-play! You’ll likely have some access to a washer/dryer, and you can easily repeat. Or, follow the tips in this video and just bring it all!
Traveling with just a carry-on comes with several advantages. With airlines looking for any excuse to upcharge, not checking a bag will save you quite a bit in fees. You won’t have the hassle of waiting for your luggage after you land, and you’ll be more flexible if your flight changes or you miss a connection. Plus, you’ll avoid the stress of a lost suitcase!
But wait … there’s more. You’ll be navigating tiny streets, cars or taxis, trains, staircases, and—if you’re lucky—teeny-tiny elevators, all with the ease of a pro. That said, it takes some preparation to travel with just a carry-on bag. These items are the ones we think offer the most “value” when packing. They’re useful, but also slim and easy to fit in small spaces.
