Establishing a Realistic Food Budget

Jump to last reply

I guarantee that you are all going to be sick of my posts very soon. I have so many questions in my head and I'm not sure if I should dump them all into one post or if I should create a bunch of little ones with specific titles. Opinions?

As for this post, I'm trying to develop a realistic food budget. Here's the details:

2-3 nights Florence in a hotel, breakfast probably included

4 nights Tuscany countryside, no meals included as far as I know but property does have an organic garden I can use

3-4 nights in Rome, probably in a hotel but maybe in an apartment

2 nights Venice, in a hotel

7 nights in Paris, likely in an apartmental rental, maybe one or two nights in a hotel but only if it's cheaper

Understanding that different days I'll be eating in or out more, or cooking my own food (or taking a cooking class), I know the day to day number is going to vary BUT what is the general consensus on how much one spends a day on food?

I'm female, 5'2 and weigh about 120 pounds. I have a healthy appetite and will definitely be enjoying all Italy and Paris have to offer. I'm thinking mostly 2 star restaurants with maybe a few 3 stars thrown in.

All told would a budget of 40-50 Euro a day. Too high, too low? Any thoughts from past travel veterans?

Thank you for your comments ahead of time. :)
