I will be travelling for a month in Italy, and I'm on a tight budget.
I will do things that are mostly free, I will probably eat maximum twice a day. For stay, I will be using couch surfing. For intercity travels, I'll be using my Eurail/Interail pass.
Do you think 30 euros a day will be enough?
Also, do recommend some great places to go while I'm there! What you think is interesting, I think it's interesting too! Let me know :)
www.priceoftravel.com publishes a "Backpackers Index" each year for popular cities around the world. We have found this to be a handy resource to get an idea about budget travellers prices as we move from country to country. They break down the daily costs into common expenses such as food, drinks, transport, accommodation so maybe you use that information to get some ideas about where you can cut costs. about 5 years ago
Well, if you don't include transport and sleep in those 30 euros, yeah, it might be ok.
A pretty tight budget but still doable. There are a lot of beautiful experience to do for free, related to history and architecture for example, as well as nature and beach life.
Be careful on your drinking, that's where most of the money goes. about 5 years ago
Yeah 30 euros is ok. Last time when I was there with my girlfriend, I lost my card so we were super short on cash. We managed to only spend on the colosseum ticket at 6 euros each( students and after 5 i think) and food from the street vendor. So i think we only spent like 30 euros for both of us.

Campo de' Fiori Markets
The vibrant outdoor markets of Campo dei Fiori provides a lively scene, filled with throngs of eager shoppers, friendly vendors and plenty of colours, flavours and scents. Holidaymakers on a budget will find a plethora of stores selling fresh produce perfect for a picnic lunch, or for cooking a delicious dinner back in their vacation rental.

An exploratory stroll is one of the best way to discover the beauty of Rome. Venturing from vicolo to vicolo, piazza to piazza, you will set sight on an array of charming streets and quaint shops.
