Italy road trip cost breakdown

If you always wondered how much can it cost to go on a road trip somewhere in Europe, you are on the right page. We decided to go on a road trip through Italy in July 2020 and mark all the expenses to show you. And to be completely honest, we were kind of interested to find out too ๐Ÿ™‚

We would like to say a few words in the beginning.

With the situation going on in 2020, we knew that we have to be more careful, therefore we decided not to try to save on the accommodation. We wanted to make sure we are in a clean environment even if we had to pay a bit more. Another thing we wanted to make sure is to have parking available so all the hotels we chose were offering parking spots.

Now let’s finally have a look on the entire cost breakdown ๐Ÿ™‚
