Hello, my wife and I were married back in February and we are doing a honeymoon on a budget. We have never been to Europe before but we were able to get some really cheap tickets through work on an agent special (we both work in travel) so it was an opportunity we couldn't pass up. We will be going mid September, so just a little over a month from now.
so we have our tickets, we have our apartment rental figured out, now we are trying to figure everything else out budget wise.
so after air and lodging we will have bout $1300 or E969 for 5.5 days. (we arrive at 5 PM so dinner one night, stay 5 full days, and on the 6th day we leave in the AM).
If i back out round trip for two on the leonardo express at $74 and then back out the two Vatican & Rome Pass for 3 days of sight seeing and buses (including Vatican) at $255, and 3 days of sight seeing and buses with the two Roma passes at $97, that will leave us with about $873 (E650) for budget for the rest.
Lets say we use the Omni & Roma for Vatican, Borghese and Castle St. Angelo or Capitoline Museums(we get Vatican +2)
and for Roma pass we see the Coliseum/Forum/Palentine Hill and Ostia Antiqua
so E650 for 5 days for two people for food, drink, gelato, a few trinkets to take back for family, and smaller sites of interest. Is that unrealistic, tough to do, or should we be OK as long as we dont splurge and make rookie mistakes like eat in front of all the big sites?
I can pull into savings and use more money and will have it available for an emergency, but I just want to make sure my non emergency budget is sound.
Sorry if that is long. Let me know your thoughts, feedback and suggestions.
