Finding the right accommodation is just as important as finding the right internship. You need a safe and comfortable place to stay during your time abroad, a place to come home to after work.
It can be quite difficult to find the right accommodation in Rome especially when you don’t have the chance to see it in person. That is why some interns choose to book accommodation for just the first week or two and make their permanent decision later.
Before going online and searching for accommodations, it is important that you first decide what kind of accommodation you want to live in, this will usually be one of the following:
Monthly rent for a furnished apartment studio costs around $650 – $1100 depending on the area and if you live in a shared apartment, you could get a room start from $370 which is way cheaper. Meanwhile, a student room cost around $500 – $800 for a private room. However, as you can imagine you will have less room to live in. Take some time to decide for yourself what you find important when it comes to housing.
