Rome Prices Last Updated: Dec 2021

Italy used to be considered one of the cheaper countries in Europe, but Rome itself is still one of Europe’s more expensive big cities. Hotel rooms tend to be pricey unless you are willing to stay in a neighborhood that isn’t close to anything useful. Food and drinks can be reasonable if you go for some of the more casual options and avoid touristy places with large signs in English out front.

Rome’s attractions are actually good value considering how amazing most of them are, so you won’t have to skip the Colosseum in order to afford dinner.
