I will definitely bring a lightweight, waterproof rain jacket, however, has any brought or regretted not brining rain pants/shell for their travels to Italy in October?
We will spend almost 4 weeks this October in Italy, including the RS 17-day tour--starting in Milan and ending in Positano. Rain or shine, I want to comfortably hike the Dolomites, Path of the Gods (Positano), etc., as well as roam around all the cities, without needing to seek cover should it rain.
I have a lightweight pair of Arcteryx rain pants (actually a shell that goes over my regular pants). Given the packing limitations of carryon only luggage, I am wondering if bringing these rain pants is the smart thing to do to ensure that I can comfortably enjoy Italy, no matter the weather or is it a safe bet that rain storms will be short-lived in Italy during October?
