The Packing Essentials for any Venice Trip | Corte Realdi

Are you heading over to Venice? Get ready to be blown away by the beautiful architecture and friendly locals. However, before you jump on the plane yet, be sure to take a look at our in-depth guide to ensuring you are making the most out of your trip here to Venice. In order for you to be as prepared as possible, the team have compiled together a list of essentials that you will need to pack! Although this is an accurate checklist for those looking to visit us here in Corte Realdi, we are also keen to point out that the below checklist will not cover the most basic of essentials, that come standard when thinking about going on holidays, such as your passport and travel insurance.

A small travel umbrella

Although you will be visiting Venice in summer, we cannot guarantee a rain-free experience, with summer showers always on the horizon. Because of this, we would reccomend you pack a small travel umbrella, just in case the weather takes a turn for the worst, you will not want to be cut short in a rainstorm.


The team would defiantly reccomend bringing along some suncream along with your travel packed umbrella to ensure you are both covered for sun exposure and rainfall. The Italian summer sun can be extremely harmful and dangerous when exposed to it for long periods of time.

Mosquito Repellent

As the city is located in a lagoon among an array of waterways, mosquitos are relatively common for tourists. The best way to avoid any inconvenience is to pack yourself some mosquito repellent and apply it every night when travelling around the city.

A traditional map

Venice is renowned for its tight and narrow cobbled streets, often leading tourists to get lost and confused. This setup is one of Venice's most charming traits but can often lead tourists to become frustrated when attempting to navigate around the city. A traditional map will often work better than your mobile phone and can be much more helpful.

Anti-Nausea medication

A great addition that may be worthwhile bringing along some anti-nausea medication, especially if you have a history of motion sickness. This will come in extremely handy when you are constantly having to jump on/off water taxis while navigating around the city.


Wellies are an extremely important part of anyone's preparation list when travelling to Venice (especially in the winter months), the landscape can often become flooded. This is where a pair of wellies can come in extremely helpful and stop you from getting wet socks and feet!
