Final comments
Get a bike and a good locker; travel as much as you can: with the train station here, you can go everywhere; meet italians! don't hang out only with Erasmus, or you'll miss a big part of the experience; go to the markets on the weekend, they are really funny; learn the language and to cook italian, it will be much funnier when you come back home. Just enjoy every opportunities!

It is really hard to find a decent house. Most of them are too expensive, too far or too old.

Personal comments
Beer is too expensive!! For food and groceries, I advise not to buy them in the center, it is much more expensive. For housing, search very well before you decide. And be careful about the house contracts!
