Ready for holidays in Tuscany to discover food and Made in Italy products? Then you need a suitcase or a travel bag!
One of the most difficult aspects of a vacation is to prepare suitcase: everyone loves to go on vacation, but they hate to prepare their suitcases. If you are traveling by plane, there is also the problem of having to meet a certain weight (around 15-20 kg), otherwise you will be charged for each extra pound. The same is true for the size, which usually does not exceed 158 cm, adding height, width and depth: for larger dimensions, additional costs are required.
But the problem is not just prepare the items you need, but also which suitcase to choose!
We, Made in Firenze, have a lot of experience and we know how to advise you. You should know that there are many types of suitcases: soft, rigid and semirigid, large, medium and small, of different materials (plastic, cloth, carbon, leather) of different colors.
Choosing the type of suitcase depends on what travel you want to do: a long trip to major cities in Tuscany like Pisa, Florence, Siena? A weekend on the wine route or in the Chianti? Are you traveling by plane, by train or by car? It also depends on the purpose of the trip: whether it is a relaxing trip between museums and monuments (Uffizi, for example), business or adventure holiday?
If you arrive in Tuscany by plane, regardless of pleasure or work trip, a rigid suitcase is indicated. Wide, bulky, waterproof, almost indestructible, the rigid suitcase is the queen of airport conveyor belts. So if you are looking for something robust, for a long trip in an airplane hold, here’s the suitcase for you. In fact, it is good to remember that luggage workers at the airport do not handle the suitcases very carefully (they are often launched!) and the rigid ones allow to blow, avoiding something inside.
Semi-rigid and soft suitcases are perfect for traveling by train or car, when space is limited and therefore need to be adapted to the best. However, they are often used in the air, but we recommend wrapping them from the cellophane directly at the airport or placing an extra outer belt that holds them securely, as well as a lock pad to prevent them from opening during flight and shifts – Trolley – conveyor roller (remote possibility, but nevertheless possible).
Finally, if you traveling with medium luggage, maybe you are planning a tour of Tuscany by car, more and more widespread because the leather travel bags are handy and beautiful, maybe treated at vegetable tanning, ecological and resistant as ours here!
The leather travel bag is an easy, elegant and comfortable solution. They had been fashioned a bit, but now they are just getting into vogue and becoming trendy. Absolutely recommended for those who choose travel to the adventure, for those who want to stand out and for those who, once bought, want the certainty of something beautiful and resilient, because a leather bag is forever!
If you are undecided about color and fantasy, the advice is to choose a dark color that can hide scratches and dirty traces. The pastel-colored suitcases are beautiful, but they leave the time for a trip to lose the brightness. So it is best to choose a dark and solid leather suitcase.
And if you did not have the leather bag at the time you arrived in Tuscany, well, do not miss the chance to receive it at home for your next vacation or holiday, by choosing one of our I Medici travel bags (IM9300 or IM9100 for example), it will be your best travel companion.
