Cost of living

While it seems property in Venice might be expensive, food seems cheap.  At the supermarket we have been buying 6 500ml bottles of water for €1.98.  Eggs cost €1.69 for 10.  We pay $4-$5 dollars for 12.  Aperol, which is an alcoholic mixer is approximately $35 a bottle at home.  In Venice I saw it in the supermarket for €7.95 for the same size bottle.  If only I could get a job I could eat like a King in Venice! The challenge is all of the pizza and pasta.  I think I would turn in to a fat Italian Mama very quickly.  That said, the advantage of Venice is that by necessity you walk a lot, so perhaps it would balance things out. 24.10.2012
