That is a small amount of luggage but at this time of year you can wear lots of layers to travel on the plane. I think people 'dress down' more at this time of year. The locals will be in winter wear with lots of woollies, puffa jackets, scarves and leather boots .Days could be cool and evenings chilly. I always pack a pashmina that I find extremely useful. A small, folding brolly is handy. Many visitors wear good walking shoes that are comfortable when walking on cobbled lanes. A colourful scarf will brighten up sweaters /cardigans.Toiletries are inexpensive in the supermarket on Corso Italia . If I find I'm getting near my limit I sometimes buy travel sized toiletries from 'Boots' after I've passed through customs! I have been stung for going overweight so I'm very careful. I pack all things electrical in my husband 's suitcase! Hope you have a great time. I'll look forward to reading your reviews.😊☀️🌟🍷

Make sure the luggage has wheels otherwise it will be tough to carry.

Who are you flying with? Some airlines will allow you to pay to increase your allowance before travel to avoid the risk of excess baggage charges. Check with your airline. There are several laundromats in Sorrento. For evening time, as you will probably only be wearing things for a few hours, perhaps take mix and match items that you can interchange to give a different look.

I too love to dress up for dinner and keep outfits smart, simple and as lightweight as possible and dress them up with some pieces of jewellery or scarves. Hopefully, you'll have hand luggage allowance too. Good luck! 🍀We recently flew with Tui and were allowed 5kg hand luggage. Toiletries I bought in the airport and perfume on the plane -easy! 😎

Have a wonderful holiday. I was there the last week in March last year and it was ideal weather for exploring. Another 4 weeks for me until in Sorrento again!
