We made a more detailed post to get a general idea of ​​all the expenses you should consider before organizing a trip to Italy. I suggest you to read the post that originated this series, How much would I spend on a trip in Italy? Now, let’s answer the question How much will I spend on a trip to Rome? Here at   Your Travel to Italy with Ana Patricia   you make the trip of your dreams !!! ALSO: see our   “Accommodation in Italy – Tips for your holidays!”

Introduction

The post will be broad, considering: Food, Accommodation, Public Transport and Entrance to Monuments. The other expenses that I consider very personal I will not consider. I’m sure this article will help you get an idea of ​​how to better plan your spending, O.K.?

1) How much will I spend on a trip to Rome? WITH ACCOMMODATION

Well, in Rome there are thousands of hotels ranging from the simplest to the most luxurious! One of the factors that most influences the value of a daily rate is, of course, the location: the more central, the more expensive! But consider that if you choose a hotel far from the center, you will end up spending more on transportation; in other words, calculate this part of your trip very well.

If you choose a hotel further away from the center, choose a hotel that is close to train / subway stations or bus stops, it will make your travel a lot easier. The daily rates in Rome vary between EUR 80 and EUR 200. We will consider a 4-day stay in a hotel with an average daily rate of EUR 100.00 (total for 4 nights: 400 Euros for a couple). Be aware that we have a session on our Blog specially focused on Accommodation in Italy. Here you will find tips on where to stay with lots of information about hotels in different Italian cities with great cost benefit. Click here!

2) How much will I spend on a trip to Rome? WITH TRANSPORT

Once in Rome, the best means of transportation is undoubtedly public transport. Of course, in the rush hour, the subway will be crowded, but if you have time, courage and want to get to know the city better, you can also choose to walk! The Rome subway, with its three lines and 60 kilometers in length, has a station available in most sights.

Another option is to use buses. It is worth remembering that it is not the most punctual or the most comfortable means of transport, but it is an option, since it has 338 daily lines, 22 nightly lines and 8,260 stops. To find out more about distances and maps, you can access the website of the company responsible for the Roman buses by clicking HERE!

Values

The ticket to use the municipal train, bus and subway costs EUR 1.50 and you can use it for up to 1h30, in other words: you can take a bus and then the subway unconcernedly, even because the distances are not that long. Be aware that we have a session on our Blog especially focused on Transport in Italy. Here you will find tips and information on public transport, car rental and more. Click here!

Important Tips

  • ALWAYS validate your ticket! Remember that there are no collectors on the buses and if any inspector get suspicious, check your ticket and it has not been validated, you will pay a quite pricy fine!
  • Then calculate two tickets, round trip. It costs EUR 3.00 per day; if you prefer, buy the daily ticket, which costs EUR 7,00, but is valid for an unlimited period of 24 hours – and is the most suitable! To pay the bill with transportation, we will consider the daily ticket for 4 days – EUR 24.00 (or 56 euros for two people).

3) How much will I spend on a trip to Rome? WITH FOOD

Now let’s go to the part that really matters (laughs), the food! The value for money in Italy, when it comes to food, is great! You eat very well and pay very little! An average expense for a full lunch / dinner (antipasto, main course, dessert and ¼ of wine) is between 20 and 25 euros, depending, of course, on the chosen restaurant. For a snack, we will calculate a base of 15.00 euros. Therefore, I advise you to save a snack and a main meal. Be aware that we have a session on our Blog specially focused on Food in Italy. Here, you will find tips and information about restaurants, how to save and more. Click here!

Golden Tips

  • AVOID, whenever possible, tourist restaurants and / or many central ones, they do not offer quality service (not all, of course!) and are much more expensive! A tip is to take a short walk and look at the nearby alleys.
  • If you want to do a different program and have dinner in a luxury restaurant, you will pay around 100 Euros per person. It is the kind of unique opportunity, so it’s worth considering the idea of ​​dining in front of the Colosseum, for example.
  • Calculating a base of EUR 40.00 per person (a hearty snack and a normal main meal), the final bill with food is around EUR 320 for 4 days (for two people).

4) How much will I spend on a trip to Rome? WITH ROMAN MONUMENTS

What about the Roman monuments? Well, we have put together the prices of the main monuments below.

Super Tip

Values of the main monuments of Rome

Values of the main monuments of Rome (value per person): The values below are valid for on-site purchases; buying online, you pay between 2 to 4 euros of reserve right (which I highly recommend in the case of the Vatican Museum, Borghese Gallery and Colosseum).

  • Colosseum, Roman Forum and Palatine Museums: EUR 12.00 – combined ticket
  • Baths of Caracalla: EUR 8.00
  • Vatican Museums: EUR 16.00
  • Borghese Gallery: EUR 15.00

Vatican

  • St. Peter’s Basilica: Free
  • Dome: by elevator (+320 steps) EUR 8.00; by stairs (551 steps) EUR 6.00
  • Sant’Angelo Castle: EUR 14.00

Let’s consider the 3 main monuments (Vatican Museum / Coliseum and Borghese Gallery): EUR 43.00 or EUR 86.00 for two people. Average spending, in Euros, considering 2 people for 4 days in Rome:

ExpensesEuros
Accommodation400.00
Transport56.00
Food320.00
Monuments86.00
Total amount862.00
Total amount per person461,00

I remember that these are average values, there are many other ways to save while traveling, for example: walking more, buying more economical snacks, the important thing is to have a basis for spending.

Golden Tips!

  • Visit the ‘open’ sights, that is, Squares, Fountains and Statues, early in the morning or at night. There are fewer people and it is possible to take photos more peacefully!
  • Before traveling, search about sights you really want to visit. Maybe visiting the Imperial Forums, for example, may not be as interesting to you as it is to someone else, or you may visit only one or two important sights.
  • If you have at least three days in Rome, you don’t have to rush and visit everything at once! You can choose to visit one or two places a day, so you don’t get so tired and don’t need to take your tours in a hurry.
  • On the first Sunday of each month, museums are free! So see if your travel dates match the first Sunday of the month, you can save a good amount!
  • When shopping, ask at the establishment if they offer Tax Free. Do not you know what it is? So read this post, click here and find out what Tax Free is in Italy!

Hotel I suggest near the Historic Center

If you are passionate about art and would like to stay in the center where you can move around walking, as well as having countless possibilities for places to have lunch / dinner or a snack, I advise you to stay in the historic center. Regions near the Trevi Fountain, the Coliseum, the Roman Forum, the Imperial Forum and the Villa Borghese, Piazza Spagna and Piazza Navona can be considered as “historic center”. These are the most expensive areas, but you will be close to everything, literally!

If you want to save a great option is the B&B, click on the links below and get to know each one. If you like the suggestion make your reservation and guarantee good prices.

Hotels that I suggest near the San Giovanni Region

For those who want to find cheaper alternatives in quiet areas, but at the same time close to the means of transport to the center, I suggest the region of San Giovanni or Monti (near the metro stations San Giovanni, Castro Pretorio and Circus Massimo) – which it is a more residential neighborhood; therefore, more economical and quiet! And with just 15 minutes by subway you will be in the center too!

Hotels that I suggest in Trastevere

For those who prefer to “taste” authentic and characteristic Rome, there is nothing better than booking a hotel in Trastevere (on the outskirts of the city’s historic river), full of typical Roman history and traditions, known for the tortuous streets of sampietrini stones and the centers medieval style housing.

The neighborhood is in the historic center and to the right of the Tevere River, in the midst of a spectacular landscape, where each visitor can observe the countless churches and squares (such as Santa Maria in Trastevere). In addition, this neighborhood offers several local restaurants and canteens for those who want to try typical Roman cuisine.
