- Travel neck wallets and passport holders are great little gifts for any traveler. They’re a safe and convenient way to carry passports, credit cards, spare cash, or travel documents. Here are 2 good choices: Venture 4th Travel Neck Wallet or Lewis and Clark Travel Pouch and Passport Holder.
- A travel money belt that fits around the waist is also a good choice for carrying cash, credit cards, and a passport safely.
- A European travel plug adapter, with USB ports and US plug socket, is essential for charging or powering electronics and phones in Italy and most European countries. See more about Italian electricity and plug adapters

- Convenient for day trips, walking around town, and shopping, this lightweight packable day pack folds up and fits in its own pouch for carrying ease when not in use.
- For shopping or as an extra bag for those souvenirs, a foldable travel duffel bag is very useful. This one is available in 4 different sizes.
- Roll up travel compression bags help save space in luggage and organize clothing items.
- For long plane rides, compression stockings are highly recommended, especially for older people.
