    @Monkey786:  First, I must confess that when I read 55-60 I thought Celsius, which is what most of the world uses, and my immediate answer was ” an air conditioned hotel room”!

    It really depends on what you are used to. If you normally have hot weather, you will be that tourist wearing a parka. If you are used to colder weather , you will be the one in shorts and a T shirt.

    You won’t need #2= the peacoat.

    I would take a hoody, and a lightweight wind and waterproof jacket that you can layer if needed.

    We were in Europe a few weeks ago. It was 16C= 60F and that combination was all I needed.

    I wore a thin leather jacket on the flight over, but only wore it once on our trip.

    @Monkey786:  I take the lightest and least possible clothes to leave room for bringing purchases home. If you find you need another layer, you can always buy something in Europe.

    Layers! Not the big coat but definitely layers. I say #1 and 3 would both be ideal.

    I’d take 1 and 3 if possible. Where are you going?

    You’ll want sweaters and scarves.  I am always cold but I like to wear layers in case I get warm while walking.  The less bulk you have the happier you’ll be.

    Are you going to be walking around alot?  Because I run in a t-shirt in those temps and get sweaty! 


    Scarves are popular in Europe and come in handy.


    I’d take jacket #1 ONLY and then layers underneath (fleece zip ups, long sleves, scarves, etc).
