I leave for Italy next week and would like to know if my bugget is good one.
I`ll stay there 15 days without to pay for hotel. The question is about how many euro i need per day? I`d like to visit to some museums, look around the landmarks, have a beer out the usual things...:)

About money, it depends where you're going exactly.. It can change quite a lot.
For example: a take-away pizza in Milan can cost as a pizza+beer in a restaurant somewhere in the Adriatic cost...

let me know your trip plan, I'll try to give you more informations (if I can!)

Thx LuisaMiao in advance! :)It would be great if you can help me with!
So I`ll arrive in Milan and from there by car starts my trip in Italy down to Genoa, Florence, Rome, Naples and some others nice towns around. I`d like to know what are the prices for example of the beer, the pizza, drinks, foods and sure what about the prices of the museum tickets (approximately, it is not necessity to know the right one), gasolene and same things what you could imagine and remember about such trip. If there is something important to know about the habits in Italy?

I budgeted about 50 euros per day last summer, but that was incl. accomodation, so you can probably get by on 30-35 euros.

I was thinking for about 40 but wasn`t sure. Also i`d like to know the prices of the most usual goods. Can you tell me a bit what is your experience? Where you were?

milan, florence and rome are expensive cities, south of italy is usually cheaper, but during vacations seaside resorts can be expensive.

in my opinion during summer is hard to find an accommodation for less than 25-30 eur per person per night in B&B . Probably acc.are more expensive, unless that you travel by car and you can select places to sleep outside the major cities.(reserving last minute offer can be good value for price, but the price

it depends on what would you like to eat. markets have many foods like salads, cooked meet (roast beef), rice salads, ham, salami, cheeses, and if you buy there you can save a lot of money. Every city has a weekly open market where buying food is usually cheap.
YOU CAN AlSO buy a slice of pizza or a sandwich and unfortunately :) you can find a mc donald almost everywhere.
but if you want to seat in a restaurant, if you're lucky you're going to spend 15-20 eur for a course and drinks...

In a bar(pub) in Rome you can expect to spend around 5 euros for a pint of beer, and slightly more for a mixed drink. Pizza and sandwiches to take and eat will be usually 2-3ish, add another euro for a drink. Your morning cappuccino should be no more than 1 euro, unless you are in the very center in a fancy cafe. Gelato is usally from 1.50-2.50, depending on size and location. Museum prices vary, but are usually between 5 and 10 euros. Here's a little tip if you go to the Colliseum. Buy your ticket at one of the entrances to the Palatine hill. It's right next to the Forum and Colliseum and the ticket is for Palatine and Coll (forum is free). Very few people go to the Palatine Hill, so you will save a lot of time waiting in line at the Colliseum.
