Please help with “dream trip” budget - Italy

Jump to last reply

Husband is almost retired and we are hoping to travel frequently (some short/some long trips). He’s challenged me to work up a budget for a 2-3 month long trip – I’m going to focus on Italy. I really have no idea how to start or even guesstimate what our budget will/should be, so I’m hoping you can help.

We are not extravagant nor are we low budget travelers, but I do need a place that is clean and safe. In past trips to Rome, we’ve averaged between $150-$200 US per night in hotels. I’m thinking we’ll rent an apartment and stay 2-3 weeks at each location.

Will start in or near Rome – we love it there. Will use trains to travel to locations outside the city – Pompeii, Ostia Antica, etc.

Thinking of visiting the following areas: Dolomites, the Lakes, Tuscany, and re-visit Venice.

How much would you budget for an apartment – 2-3 weeks each location?

How much would you budget for food? Will eat breakfasts in the apartment, pack some lunches, all dinners probably out

Car rental / train transportation (no car rental in Rome!)

Tours / entertainment / museums

I know this very general information, but I NEED somewhere to start. I’m not looking for things to do / places to see specifically, but will take suggestions. My main focus is COST.

Thanks in advance for your help!!
