Rome is the worlds 21st most expensive city to live in, while Milan is the 13th, according to the annual survey released by Mercer Consulting that classifies the cost of living in 144 major cities in six continents. Both Milan and Rome made the top ten in terms of the most expensive monthly rental for a standard apartment, however: Milan comes eighth at 1,800, and Rome tenth at 1,352. Pricier than Milan are Tokyo, New York, London and Paris, as well as, perhaps surprisingly, Peking and Moscow. The two Italian cities come in at joint 12th for public transport where the cost of a single ride is just 1, far less than in London, which headed up the table at 2.92. The cost of a cup of coffee sitting down in a bar in Rome is joint 11th with Paris at 2.20, while Milan (3.0) now beats London (2.77), although falls considerably short of the most expensive city for caffeine, Moscow (4.47).
