Europe is packed with sights to see and things to do. Whether you're visiting the Mediterranean ports of Italy, France, Spain and Greece or plan to cruise farther north and sail the Norwegian fjords, you must be prepared.

For anyone planning to cross the pond and take in the many historic gems that Europe offers, be sure these top 10 must-pack items make it into your suitcase for the trip.
