I am leaving in 10 days to join a RS Italy in 17 Days Tour. I am finalizing my clothing choices and I am set for what to take to wear during the day. The thing I am struggling with is what to wear to the dinners that are included in the tour. Most of what I have read on the forum and the information put out by RS says that these tours are casual...which I love, however, I saw one posting a while ago that mentioned that some of the restaurants on the tours are very nice and require one to dress up. The only piece of clothing I was planning on bringing that is the least bit "dressy" is a plain, knee-length black skirt that I can pair with any top. Will this work?
I would love to hear from posters that have been on this tour or a similar one during summer to find out what people on the tour are actually wearing to these dinners. My previous trips to Europe have not been with a tour and I ate dinner at cafes or in my apartment so I was not concerned with taking anything but very casual clothes. I travel with a 21" bag so I have to pack fairly light. Any help/suggestions will be greatly appreciated!
