Cost of living calculator

Going to Italy has never been so simple

Italy might appear at first to be an expensive place to live. But the cost of living in Italy is completely achievable for those who wish to live and study in Italy – as long as you do some preparation.

Use our cost of living calculator to estimate how much money you will need for your time in Italy. Note that these are estimates based on averages, and your actual cost of living will depend on where you live in Italy, the school you attend, how long you’re studying for, your accommodation type, your lifestyle, and spending habits.

If you wish to study on a long term study visa, the Italian government requests preparing at least 1000 euro for each month of stay, for living costs. This includes the cost of accommodation fees and living expenses. It doesn’t cover school tuition. However, we always recommend students prepare as much more than this as possible.
