Budgeting for Italy

Jump to last reply

So I've booked our plane tickets, train tickets for long-distance rail and lodging for my wife and I.

I was wondering if you guys could help me with estimating costs for:

1. Regional trains (i.e. Florence to Pisa, Sorrento to Almafi Coast, etc.)
2. Taxis (We'll likely be doing a lot of walking, but in general, what kind of expectation should I have in terms of using a taxi and getting to places when touring around)
3. Food (We'll likely eat a lot of gelato, have good dinners and light/medium lunches)
4. Tourist attraction fees (Vatican City touring fees, museums, etc.)
5. Other expenses that I may have

We'll likely be seeing the sites, going to museums, walking around and just exploring Italy, enjoying some night life (bars mostly, unless there's other stuff you recommend). We're going to the following places:

Rome 4 nights (All the big highlights: Coliseum, Vatican, etc.)
Florence 4 nights (Pisa and wherever else, TBD)
Sorrento 4 nights (Almafi Coast for one day, Pompeii for one day, Naples/Sorrento for 1-2 days)
Venice 3 nights (TBD, any recommendations, cost estimates?)
