What to pack for a trip to South Tyrol in July

Remember to check the airline’s carry-on luggage restrictions, including size and weight limits, before packing to ensure that your luggage meets the requirements. It’s also a good idea to pack a change of clothes and essential toiletries in your carry-on bag in case your checked luggage gets delayed or lost. The same also goes for train travel. If you are planning on travelling to Italy by Train (which I’ve done multiple times myself already, and can wholeheartedly recommend), make sure to have everything you will need during the journey on hand. Consider an extra tote bag for snacks and entertainment, and eventually a sort of jacket in case the air con is too cold. No one wants to have to open their suitcase on the floor in the middle of the train just to take headphones or a Müsli bar out. Store the bag in a luggage compartment and only have a tote or backpack with the most valuable and usable items close.
