Cost of living in Italy
Any city in this country is already an amazing attraction in itself. The atmosphere of this country has inspired many great artists to create world-renowned masterpieces. History is still fraught with a lot of mysteries. They come to Italy to the Vatican, Verona, Sicily, Sorrento and many, many other amazing places in this country. What is the cost of living in Italy for tourists?
Hotels and hotels
The ski resorts of Italy have their own hotel infrastructure - there are chalets and apartments. Hotels as such are not very common here, and those that exist are quite simple. Prices are different, starting from 100 €. In the tourist regions of the country, prices are also not low. A single room in a cheap hotel will cost 25 €, a double room 45 €. Hotels more decently ask for a night from 80 € per person. Luxurious rooms in expensive hotels cost from 300 €.
Prices rise accordingly during the season. It is worth saying that you need to be careful when choosing middle-class hotels - tour operators often assign a class to a hotel, not even knowing if the rooms have air conditioning. Hostels loved by young people will gladly settle for the night for 14–20 €, but there are more expensive options.
Prices in restaurants are also different. In a small town, you can find an unsightly cafe with huge prices, while in Rome or Florence, there are restaurants that are quite affordable for a budget tourist. The usual cost of lunch in an average restaurant is € 30-50. You can, of course, eat fast food or cheap pizza, but this is not an option at all. Expensive restaurants delight with local cuisine and various menus, but prices here start at € 100 for a small snack..
There are special tourist tickets in Italy. They are universal for all types of transport, and their price depends on the number of days. A one-day ticket will cost 4-5 €, the same ticket for a whole week - 12 €. The taxi fare is approximately 1 € per kilometer, and a hotel call fee is also charged. This is somewhere around 2–3 €. Don't forget about extra charges on holidays and weekends..
To rent a car, you need to have a credit card with 500 €. The money is blocked as collateral. There are also many different rules and insurances in case of unforeseen situations. In addition, in Italy most of the roads are toll, so car rental is profitable if only the route runs along free roads.
