During the warmer months, opt for a few polo shirts and in the colder months, pack long-sleeved and button down shirts. Do not forget to include at least one warm layer cloth such as a zip-up fleece or wool coat. A sports coat should be in your list if you plan to dine out.


Pack fewer pants than shirts. You can easily reuse them. With European style fashion, you need to make sure that you have at least a pair of khakis and a pair of jeans. If your planned trip is during the spring or summer, pack a pair of khaki or navy blue walking shorts.

Pack worn-in sneakers since walking with a new pair may result to blisters. Add a leather shoes to wear at night or to go with your jeans. During the summer, wear slip-on shoes or sandals.

Make sure to pack one tie in case you need to dress up for an upscale dinner. For cold weather accessories, pack a knit cap. For the summer, a lightweight scarf should be worn on the neck on warmer nights.
