    I had to do a bit of Italy on a budget while I was there. It wasn’t always easy, but I definitely found some great deals on espresso, food, and wine wherever I went.

    Loved the Colosseum photo and the snowy Italy. Great tips. I might have to go to Italy again to explore it the way you suggested. Thanks for the post 🙂

    I had a difficult time understanding how to order coffee in Rome! It was actually quite funny because I didn’t understand why everyone was getting their coffee before me. In Florence, I figured out about the extra tax if you dine in…let’s just say I made the family get the cheaper option.

    Awesome blog post! Love how informative the post is and also the hints and tips. Also, your photos of the Colosseum and Leaning Tower of Pisa are unreal! I have only visited Italy for 5 days, but I have big plans to go back there and do and old “Grand European Tour” of Italia! Thanks for sharing your article, bookmarked for future use 🙂

    I always find Italy very expensive. It’s long due on my list but I keep pushing it later. Now that I got to read so many good tips to save money while traveling the country, I guess I can consider visiting the place next November. I guess it would be cheaper than during the summers as you recommended.

      Thank you, Shreya. You might not be able to go to the beach on November but it will definitely be cheaper and less crowded 🙂

    It’s a cool fact that many museums in Italy have a day in the week when the entrance is free! Also, it is really cool that many cathedrals and churches do not charge an entrance fee, I was in Budapest recently and it was quite the opposite! Also, free walking tours are a great idea – it is the new concept that has begun to come up in many European cities. Renting a bicycle is also pretty cool!

    These are all fantastic tips on traveling around Italy on a budget. I do remember the train network in Italy to be really incredible and was so convenient to travel between cities. I am a museum lover so it’s good to know that most museums will offer one day a week a free entry – but I totally would go super early to avoid the crowds. The churches I remember were so incredibly beautiful and I do appreciate that it is free to enter. I have never done one of their free walking tours – I totally would love to try this one day as I think it would be so wonderful to learn about a particular city from a local point of view.

    Awesome tips! Things in Italy sure do add up, especially accommodation. Love your tip about Aperitivo hour. Wish I had known about this when I went the last time! Will definitely take more notice next time. We went to Venice in the off season, i.e. Winter and one of the best decisions we ever made because the crowds were ore than bearable. We could even take decent photos without hoards of tourists everywhere!

    Italy is one of my favorite destinations. Aside from good food, the sites and spots are really beautiful. I would have to agree that I also thought a trip to Italy is expensive but I was surprised that it was not exactly what I expected.

    Thank you so much for your tips. They are very helpful.

    Wow! This bring back memories. I did a Italy trip with a shoe-string budget! It was incredible!
    I stayed in hostels and it was my first time. I loved it! And they were pretty close to the attractions as well.
    I have to visit Italy again to those cities which I didn’t go last time!!!! Your post is my reminder to book tickets!
