Estimated Expenses

The estimated expenses below are NOT paid to the program. The figures below can be used to plan average room, meal and miscellaneous costs while in La Spezia. However, please remember that each person has individual spending habits and that you must decide for yourself how much to budget. Depending on your living arrangements and own spending habits, as well as the depreciating dollar, you may spend more or less than what is listed below. Also remember that travel within Italy and Europe can further increase costs.

During your first couple of months in La Spezia, you will probably spend more money than you budget due to start-up costs (i.e. apartment rent and security deposits, not knowing the most economical places to eat, etc.) so be prepared for this by making sure you have some extra money available.
