Netherlands, Spain, France, Italy....realistic food budget?

Jump to last reply

So, it's close to a month away...but my boyfriend and I are traveling to Europe for two months. We leave February 1st and return home March 31st. Thankfully, all of the really difficult planning is over! All of our lodging accommodations are set and paid for. While in France, we are staying with family friends for two weeks. The rest of the trip we are staying in apartments that all have full kitchens.

So my question is, what do you think is a realistic food budget for while we are there?

We got the apartments so that we could save money by cooking our own meals, but we obviously want to be able to go out and have dinner and try some of the local cuisines. I've done some research on how much we should spend on food and such, but every one tells me something vastly different from the other. Now that it's only a month away, we just want to see how much extra money we should be striving to put into our bank accounts!


We're traveling to Amsterdam (one week), Paris (one week), Beaune (one week), Barcelona (one week), Venice (3 nights), Bologna (4 nights), Cinque Terre (3 nights), Florence (one week), Rome (one week), and Amalfi Coast (5 nights).

Thank you for your help!
