What should I pack when moving to Venice?

Answer this Question

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

"When moving to Venice, you should pack a variety of clothing to accommodate the city's varying weather conditions. This includes lightweight clothing for the hot, humid summers, as well as warmer clothing for the cooler winters. Waterproof clothing, such as raincoats and boots, are also essential due to the city's frequent flooding. Comfortable walking shoes are a must, as Venice is a pedestrian city with many cobblestone streets. You should also pack a good quality sun hat, sunglasses, and sunscreen to protect yourself from the sun, especially during the summer months. Don't forget to pack your toiletries, prescription medications, and any other personal care items you use daily. However, keep in mind that Venice has plenty of stores where you can purchase these items if needed. Bring along your important documents, such as your passport, driver's license, and any necessary visas or work permits. It's also a good idea to have copies of these documents in case they get lost or stolen. If you plan on cooking at home, you might want to pack some of your favorite non-perishable food items, as they may be hard to find in Venice. Lastly, consider packing a voltage converter and adapter plugs for your electronics, as the electrical outlets in Italy are different from those in many other countries. Remember, Venice is a city with many bridges and stairs, so try to pack as lightly as possible to make your move easier," explained one expat living in Venice, Italy.
