Are there any staples you swear by to survive summer in Italy every year?
Italy, especially the South, has a sweltering summer that you can survive only by eating tons of gelato and enjoying the day at the best beaches. Be prepared to sweat a lot, and wherever you stay in Italy, ensure there’s an air conditioner or a fan in your room! Of course, you’ll need hats, good sunglasses, a good SPF 50+ sunscreen, a reusable water bottle, and bug spray (mosquitos are very popular here). Always choose a comfortable pair of walking shoes, if you want to discover the most beautiful places in Italy you will walk a lot!
