Italy is the land of food, so stock up! If you're going for an inexpensive meal then you're looking at around €15 (approx $23.46) but if you grab a slice of pizza or a pot of pasta from a local takeaway you'll pay around €5 or less (approx $7.80)!

Looking to spend more money on experiences (and food) than accom? We feel ya! Get yourself a dorm bed in a hostel from around €20 (approx $31.28).
Not feeling sharing a room with 4 other travellers? Fair. A double room in a mid-range hotel can vary between €100-€200 (approx $156-$312).
In the summer, Northern Italy is warm and it'll occassionally rain, however if you head to Rome, or the south and central regions, you'll find it can get uncomfortably hot - with temps climbing up to 35°C (although, you might like that). This is also when the majority of tourists flock to the country.
Our recommendation? Head there between April - June or September - October.
