Packing + Travel

 
 

Packing list

Attire on the Amalfi Coast tends to be casual and beachy but also stylish and thoughtful. You will see a wide range of outfits from high fashion to casual beachwear. The average temperatures for our Fall FitCations are highs in the 70s and lows in the 60s. For Spring Fitcations, temperatures are in the low 70s to mid 80s. It will likely be very warm during the day and cooler at night. Of course, do check the weather forecast before closing your suitcase When you’re choosing outfits to pack, think of how you can layer throughout the day. When you pack items that can be worn in multiple outfits not only does it help to save space in your carrier, but you also have more room for Italian goodies to bring home. 😉

Day wear 

  • Fitness class attire: Traditional fitness clothing that won’t restrict movement and is sweat-wicking/breathable. For your daily classes, you’ll find almost everything you’ll need in your BSF swag bag including a day pack, water bottle, yoga mat , and bands.

  • Day trip and sightseeing attire: We will often go from hiking or stair climbing into lunch or site seeing. Athletic leisure attire such as hiking shorts, capris pants, skorts or light pants can cross over for active wear and sightseeing. Women will need to cover shoulders in any church, so please bring a light wrap or scarf.

  • Beach attire: Swimsuits, cover-ups, hats, sunglasses and water shoes are a must. Beach clubs will provide lounging chairs and towels for a small daily fee.

Evening attire

  • Italians dress to impress for dinner, but there is no need for a sport coat or high heels. Casual slacks, chinos, nice jeans, skirts, or sundresses will meet the needs for anything on our itinerary.

  • Light jacket or wrap for when the nights get cool.

Footwear

  • Water shoes or water sandals: All of the beaches are rocky and difficult to navigate in flip-flops or while barefoot.

  • Fitness footwear: Light trail shoes with good tread and a non-slip sole are perfect — think trail runner versus hiking boots. Athletic shoes for fitness classes but you can also use trail shoes, too. Don’t forget socks!

  • Sight-seeing shoe: Choose a comfortable walking shoe or sandal that you’ve done some miles in—you don’t want to get blisters or find out too late that they’re uncomfortable.

  • Evening shoes: Loafers, sneakers, dress sandals, flats or wedges work well. We recommend avoiding high heels and stilettos as they’re more challenging to wear while navigating cobblestone walkways.

  • Toiletries
