Editor Rating: 8-Rome is an expensive city, there's no way around it. One surprising thing it does have going for it though is you can find affordable food options. A backpacker scraping by can visit Rome for about $75US/day, but if you want to actually see some of the sites and have a bit of comfort, plan on spending closer to $100-$150US/day.
