Overall
I wish I had known...
That I would be sucked into the Milanese lifestyle in terms of clothing, food, going out! In terms of costs I thought it would be less of an impact on my bugdet. I was really broke when I returned to the Netherlands.

Final comments
Italy is great for traveling at a low cost. You can take the train to any city. Particularly the south is a great experience. Be sure to know the language when you arrive abroad, at least a basic communication level is very helpfull.
