Flights!! Although you can claim them back from your LEA, you do have to make the initial payment yourself first and the LEA's are not very prompt about recrediting your account. Also beware at the end of the year of excess baggage charges - they can escalate... Last Tip: Go to IKEA - it is in Casalecchio and a free bus runs from Piazza dei Martiri (I think that's the name) but do go it's great for cheap house stuff and Euromercato is just next door with lots of cheap food.

Travel was very cheap. Food was cheap from the local markets, and a experience in itself! Get a mobile phone asap if you want a decent social life.

Find a shop which sells non perishable goods, and buy pasta, canned food, toiletries from there, then shop at markets for fresh produce. Find out about the "abonnamento mensile" Monthly season ticket for the buses - it may work out cheaper. Get a bike (Via Zamboni is cheap)(and a VERY good lock).

Life is expensive in Italy, especially nightlife and as you have to enjoy every moment in this fabulous country I didn't really care this Erasmusstay was a quite expensive period in my life.

Give parties at your appartment instead of going out in clubs! Learn to know Italian people so you can visit them and have a cheap stay in different parts of Italy!

Because in Italy everything is more expensive then in Serbia, what is understandable considering overall economic situation and standard of living

Internet and telephone are expensive in Italy, as is energy. Food is cheaper. I travelled the whole country though so that required some money.

Check out if your own bank has a deal with any bank of your host country - you may save the withdrawal commission.

Housing is very expensive in Bologna, especially if you live in a single room, like I did. Food is cheaper in Italy and better quality. To use the phone always cost more money than at home because you are charged by the minute. Travel is cheaper because everyone usually travels by train or bus.

Be tight with your money. It can go really fast in a city like Bologna which has so much stuff to offer. Make a budget and stick to it. Then if you have money left over at the end, take a trip.
