What should I pack when moving to Siena?

Answer this Question

We asked people living in Siena to list three things they wish they had brought and three they wish they had left behind. They responded...

"When moving to Siena, you should pack clothing suitable for the Mediterranean climate, including lightweight clothes for the warm months and layers for the cooler months. Don't forget a waterproof jacket and an umbrella for the occasional rain. Bring comfortable walking shoes, as Siena is a pedestrian-friendly city with cobblestone streets. Pack any necessary prescription medications, along with a copy of your prescriptions and a basic first aid kit. Bring travel-sized toiletries to last you until you can purchase more locally. It's also a good idea to pack a reusable water bottle, as Italy has many public water fountains where you can refill it. Bring important documents, such as your passport, visa, driver's license, and any necessary insurance information. Make sure to have copies of these documents stored separately, in case of loss or theft. If you plan on working or studying in Siena, bring any necessary paperwork related to your job or school. Pack electronic devices, such as your smartphone, laptop, and camera, along with their chargers and adapters. Italy uses Type F and Type L plugs, so make sure to bring the appropriate adapters for your devices. Bring a small Italian phrasebook or language learning app to help you communicate with locals and navigate your new city. It's also a good idea to pack a guidebook or map of Siena to help you explore the city and its surroundings. Lastly, pack some personal items that remind you of home, such as photos, small decorations, or your favorite snacks. These items can help make your new living space in Siena feel more comfortable and familiar," remarked another expat who made the move to Siena, Italy.
