I hope this helps those out there planning away. This is strictly for you because I wouldn't do this for me. :-) I would have loved to have this during my trip planning process.
We were charged a total of $173.49 in international transaction fees. This is both AMEX and VISA and any ATM charges we incurred. (see my other posts about Euros we took)
We spent approx. $2,300 US on food alone. Keep in mind we ate at our hotels every day for breakfast, we ate at several nice restaurants which up'd the price a bit, and two days were spent travelling between cities. This is probably above average.
We spent approx. $830 US on souvenirs and extras that we needed, souvenirs for not only ourselves but for others too. This included: shirts, magnets, lots of Lemoncello, lots of wine, 1 pair of Nike Shoes (hubby) and extras stuff we found along the way. We also stopped at the pharmacy twice with this total and probably paid for a couple extra things I am forgetting.
We spent over $1,000 on two gift items for me and we did our VAT refund at the airport both with Global Blue getting back $109 US cash!
For totals on how much we spent on hotels, particular restaurants and sites see my other posts.
