Budget $$ Help for Italy in Fall 2013

Jump to last reply

Planning a trip to Rome, Florence, a couple of hill towns in Tuscany, Venice in late Sept/early Oct 2013. We are in early stages of investigating hotels, restaurants, etc. We would like a clean, well located hotel (double) - doesn't have to be 4 or 5 star, preferably with breakfast included. Proximity to good transportation, sight seeing would be a bonus. Need hotels with elevator and air conditioning, modern or chain not a problem although local would be preferred. How much to plan for hotels per night in each of these areas?

How much to plan per day for food? Hoping breakfast will be included with hotel, if not, how much to plan for American style eggs, bacon, and toast or continental breakfast w/ coffee in center of city? We tend to lighter lunch and nice "tablecloth" dinner - 2 courses with wine?

Generally, we budget $250 per night for hotel and $150 per day for food for 2 adults - do we need to increase? Please share your thoughts and recommendations, thanks!
