Living costs in Lugano without rent/food

Hello,

I have a job offer just outside Lugano. I currently live in Cologne (Germany) where I have a net salary of 2200-2300 a month depending on overtime worked. I share a flat and my rent is 650 a month, I pay 70 for my gym and 45 a month for my mobile phone, I also spend roughly 500 a month on food. At the end of the month I roughly have 1000 for everything else.

In Lugano I would have 3250CHF a month net and my employer provides accommodation and I also have a food allowance of 650CHF. Would I be able to have a decent living on the salary in Lugano considering I don't pay for food and accommodation? I will also be a few days a week in Milan, so could get everything I need there or in Germany when I am home for the weekend.

I am trying to save some money without having to watch pennies too much.

I would say that instead of having 1000 euro for "everything else" you'd have about 2000. So, yes, I'd say go for it.

Keep an eye out for someone trying to sell their gym membership. You might pick up a good deal
