What’s in my bag: Rome edition


What’s in my day bag for Rome:

Bag: Manhattan Portage Medium Messenger
Canon Rebel XTi with 2 straps (blackrapid and hand strap)
3 memory cards
3 camera batteries
Mini tripod
Lens cleaning microfiber cloth
Rick Steves Italy guide
Rough Guide map of Rome
Prints of Rick Steves maps of the Pantheon, Sistine Chapel and Vatican Museums
Ballpoint pens (for writing on maps)
Pouch with toiletries (Tylenol, sudafed, etc)
Pouch with wires (iPhone charger, 2 sets earbuds to listen to MP3 audio tours) and camera batteries/cards
Nalgene water bottle (to avoid buying $3 bottles of water all day long)
Maui Jim sunglasses

Update: We are also going to be carrying long pants to change into before going into the Vatican… they have strict rules about wearing long pants to enter St. Peter’s.   They say you can be turned away even in long shorts or capri pants.  (I look silly in capris anyway. lol)
