What to Wear in Rome and Italy I


t’s often hot in the summer months, so light clothing is recommended. In the winter, jeans and a jacket will do. Regardless of


when you go, always have a comfortable pair of walking shoes.


As a general rule, try to avoid wearing gaudy clothing or anything that will call attention to yourself or brands you as a tourist. Avoid logo shirts, fanny packs, baseball caps, flip-flops, etc. that might attract pickpockets. Women in Rome and Italy usually wear slacks,


skirts or sundresses. Men wear slacks and a com- fortable shirt with sleeves. No t-shirts. Most major churches, like St. Peter’s Basilica in Rome,


require women to have covered shoulders. For women who wear sleeveless clothing, bring a shawl or scarf. Short skirts or mini dresses are a no-no. Italians, Romans in particular, are fashion con- scious. If you really want to fit in, don’t wear shorts.
