Sure you can get apartments that cheap but you will want to consider if you want to live in them. You need to take a look. Community costs are common fees like garbage collection. Utilities are higher but shouldn't be too high. I had a 110 m2 and i paid 200 or so euro a month for electric (electric heat). But we used a pellet stove to heat the house. Also include about 30 per month for internet and phone. You may or may not have to pay for water.
Dear Flying, Sergio is right (as always)...I've seen gorgeous places for very little money...but there is always a catch. For instance it may be so far out in the country that going for groceries is a 1hr trip through twisty/winding mountain roads. Fine for the possible hermit or one writing the 'great Italian novel' but I'd rather home be a bit more accessible. As far as utilities go they seem to be far cheaper than US but there is usually no dryer, no dishwasher, no ac and no beloved trash-masher. We pay c. E200/2x a yr for water and about the same for garbage. And internet/phone service is quite cheap but also not usually broadband (we pay E43/month) and it can be iffy. Dish TV is c. E30/month. All things said we just relax and live a more 1950's lifestyle. It does also depend where you choose to live...we're in Liguria in the country. Good Luck
I've had an all inclusive arrangement in the trendy section of Trieste. I've paid €700 per month for everything, but do see the bills. Heat (gas) costs about €300 every two months in the winter (less in the summer); I think garbage €200 a year; water runs about €28 every two months. I think the Internet, which includes TV (more than local stations, but not sure which server) is about €48 a month. I have a generous "Your Country" plan through Wind and pay €10-12 a month (plenty of minutes and WiFi for me, particularly since I have WiFi at home). So, as others have said, it depends on where you live. I assume costs are lower in the south.
