The average cost of food and drink in Rome is a few cents to a few dollars higher than that of America. For example, a gallon of regular milk in Rome is around $7. In America, you’ll pay about $2 for a gallon of milk, depending on what kind of milk you buy. Consequently, the price of milk in Rome is more than double that of American milk. Another example of this is a pound of beef. You can buy a pound of beef in America for $3.
In Rome, it averages $6.50. You’re paying quite a bit there. However, Rome beats America on the price of a small water bottle. In Rome, it costs $0.67. In America, it’s $1.
