The weather in Rome during April is more spring-like but can still have a few chilly days.

Spring attire includes long skirts, long pants, or jeans. We've listed some essentials to pack below:

1. Windbreaker

There will be a number of warmer days in April, so you will need cotton shirts with a light jacket or windbreaker for those days.

Consider this windbreaker from Columbia. They're light and easy to pack. 

2. Umbrella

There won't be a lot of rain in April, but you don't want to be unprepared in case you are out on those days.

We recommend packing a travel umbrella, like these from Rain-Mate.

They come in a variety of colors and are easy to pack and easy to carry around! 

3. Sweaters

For chilly nights and early mornings, you'll want a comfortable sweater. Pack a few for variety. They're great for layering!
