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.
