Living in Leiria – What does it cost?

I know it’s very important to know the costs you might have in your Erasmus city, so this post is for you! Luckily Numbeo has an estimate of the costs in Leiria, but I also want to add costs that are not on the website. If you want to live cheaply consider 350€ per person, but if you want to go to parties in clubs and spend a lot on alcohol in there, push that to 600€ or 800€. It really depends on your availability to save money.
