I wish I had known...
Not really. I felt well prepared for my experience and discovered so much more while there. I think that this is a really important aspect of the experience and of becoming more independent.

Personal recommendation
I loved staying in Padova. To me, it was city life, but not an overwhelming city life like Venice, Milan, or Florence. I loved the feel to the city and the pace of life in Italy. It was unforgettable and would definitely choose studying there again!

Final comments
I suggest that you really get to know the country. I enjoyed traveling through Italy, more than throughout Europe. It really gave me a sense of what Italy's culture and people are all about. I definitely recommend to people who have ever thought of studying abroad to go for it. It is an amazing experience and is an incredible road of discovery!

Personal spending habits
First of all, Italy is a more expensive country than Spain, but also we must practically start a new life here, and expense some money on things that we already have in our home countries.

Personal comments
When i first arrived in Italy I was able to make people understand me even if the correct vocabulary wasn't being used but i did have some difficulty with the speed at which people spoke. After spending 10 months there i speak very well and i can understand mostly everything when people speak to me.

Night life is less lively than my home town (Porto). The most fun was meeting other Erasmus at their apartments or in town. Not many good clubs or bars though.
