Living in Rome

Well, let’s take into account the fact that you’re not there just to visit, but you’re there for a semester and need to know how much you’re gonna spend on a daily basis. I mean that’s the whole gist of the article, so I’m gonna repeat it a couple of times. So how much is the cost of living in Rome for students ?

So whats it like to live in Rome? Lucky for you Rome is one of the cheapest capitals of Europe, and we’re not just talking food, but also transport and entertainment. It’s already more economical than other cities, but being a student you’ll have the chance to enjoy a whole lot of student discounts around the city, just remember student ID. And this way you’ll have a fair amount of extra cash to spend on food and maybe a night out or two, cause I mean you can’t be in Italy and not indulge on food.

Another crucial topic we have to take into account is where to live in Rome Italy?

I mean you might want to pick a place near your university, or maybe you’ll want to live the Italian commuters life (not advisable), and go back home and tell tales of the things you’ve seen. We’ve got a fair selection of apartments you can pick from on our website.

Is Rome expensive to eat out?

Rome isn’t that pricey when it comes to food. So how much is a pizza in Rome? What are the restaurant prices in Rome? WHAT is the cost of eating out in Rome? all very important questions if you’re on a tight student budget. A pizza in Rome and drink while sitting down will cost you around 12€, but you can also find other stand up joints, like forni, that’ll be a lot less. I found a really helpful website that can help you compare cost of living with wherever you are.

Generically non-students spend up to 700€ a month on living costs, but this isn’t counting discounts and it’s also keeping in mind family expenses. So don’t freak.
