Venice, Florence, Rome

Going this month. Tauck suggests a sport coat for men at the group dinners. Is it really necessary? Trying to pack light. Thanks


  • No not really needed especially if the weather is hot.
  • Hi Jimmydpgh,

    In general, Europe is more formal than the United States, but use your best judgment. A dress shirt and tie would look just as good as a sport coat and dress shirt, so if packing light is your concern, that would work and a tie certainly takes up a lot less space.
    On the other hand, if you're the sort of person who might wear a jacket on multiple nights, you might get enough mileage out of it for it to be worth packing. At the end of the day, it's your call.

    I hope this helps!
