There is so much more to do!! I went out much more often then at home because it was the way to see everything and meet new people. Telephone is more expensive because you have to pay for every call you make - there are no included minutes like in the US. Travel was less expensive because of the rail system and youth hostels.

Just because it's more expensive to be there, you want to party and get out there-there is also sites and museums to visit so bring a credit card. To average-I was to about 900 $ a month excluding tuition and housing.

Nightlife is expensive.. caomparable to other big cities, ie NYC or Chicago. Travel was really cheap, but I did alot more of it than when I was at home. I went to a different country almost every weekend. 14 countries in all. It was a great experience. As far as telephone, its easiest to buy a cellphone here.

The local currancy (the euro) was a lot stronger than the dollar when I was there, and its a big city. Lots cheaper than London though.

Share groceries with your rommates. Budget through the semester - we were all broke towards the end! Best friend went here before me so I had a good idea of the expenses. Talk to the poeple who went before you if you can!

Called home more. And rent in the city for housing is a bit higher than at home in the states.

Get a monthly transportation pass for ATAC in Rome... instead of having to worry about buying a ticket every week you buy it once and your covered - no fines.

I spent a lot of money on travel in Italy obviously because I wanted to explore outside of Rome (and Italy) on the weekends. Other than that, most items are cheaper in Italy than in the US.
