Your thoughts

Being a native German, living in the States and organizing small group travel to Europe I find your site accurate and very helpful. My clients often ask what to pack when visiting Europe and I loved your motto: Dress smart! Nice job guys:) - Russ and Elke, USA

Remember that if you want to visit a church, you must have your shoulders and knees covered. If you are wearing clothes that expose those areas, be sure to carry and use a pashmina/shawl and/or sarong. Otherwise, you will be asked to purchase and wear a plastic piece to use for coverage in order to enter the church. This also applies to men. - Arlene, via Pinterest

I went at end Dec/Jan so it's cold! I am a Queenslander so wore a thermal, light jumper with warm jacket. Always take a woollen scarf for winter and an umbrella. Black on black always best as you don't look like a tourist! Add colour with scarf. Milan really dressy even during day. - Louise, Australia, via Facebook
