Budgeting for a May trip to Italy

My fiance and I are creating a budget for our 14 day honeymoon (May 8 - 21)to Rome, Florence and Venice. We have decided to stay at 3 star hotels. Excluding airfare, what is a safe budget for food (3 meals/day -nothing gourmet),Museums and sightseeing, and travel in and between our destinations?


thanks!

12 actual days (May 9-20)

$15 / person per day for lunch
$20 / person per day for dinner
$15 / person per day for attractions
$15 / day cabs and metro in Rome
$25 / person for train Rome-Florence
$10 / ride to/from hotel, Florence
$20 / person for train, Florence-Venice
$25 / ride to/from hotel, Venice
$10 / person multi-day, vaporetto
$60 / ride, gondola

$900 give or take $100-200 (all USD)

This does not include "snacks" or other beverages outside mealtime ($5-20 per day per person?), bars or other nighttime entertainment (except for the gondola - - and he BETTER do THAT for you!), postcards, postage, books, telephone calling cards, film, gifts or other shopping

Sorry if USD is not your choice of currencies.

Best wishes - - for a great life in marriage together,

Rex

Melissa, I would plan on $220/day if you plan to include Venice, which is higher than the other two. The big variable will be transport---cars are expensive in Italy.

Wow! This is a first! I am recommending train and somebody ELSE is recommending travel by car! she said just those three cites, Bob - - not all the other fun places you and I might prefer along the way, Bob!

And besides, it's their honeymoon - - they don't have to see it all this time (Assisi, Cortona, Siena, Verona, et cetera).

Ben Haines, are you reading this!?

Thanks for the info, Rex. My fiance and I are going to Italy for our honeymoon this July--for 14 nights--Venice, Tuscany, Rome & Positano. Cannot wait.

Sandi, would it be possible to see your budget also?

I will probably be back here before we leave with questions....Thanks to all!
