Certains things were simply cheaper in Italy while I was there but I have been back since the Euro arrived and things have definitely got significantly more expensive! However generally travel is cheaper than the UK, certain foods which Italians eat are cheaper whereas foods which they don't eat so regularly are more expensive. For example pasta and sauces are cheaper than the UK but breakfast cereal is more expensive. If you get a pizza in a restaurant or takeaway it will be cheaper - and a hell of a lot nicer! So, when in Italy, eat like the Italians do.

Personal comments
When I was there Italian banks had a monthly charge for having an account. It may be a better idea, depending on the amount of time you are there for, to get a UK accoount which has a Cirrus option so you can withdraw money in Italy (for a small fee).

Because in a foreign country you travel more than usual to get to know the country and for telephone because it is more expensive to phone home. In Munich the prices for accomodation are the highest of Germany. So it's no wonder that it was cheaper for me.

Telephone in Italy is very expensive. It's better to by an international phonecard in one of the "Tabacchi". With those you can call by pin-code from every telephone.

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.
