"So similar, so different, so European" Eastern Europe has nothing to envy to the western front.
The Eastern Europe is that part of our continent that we tend to ignore unless you both real travelers. Let's face it, when we want to organize a holiday in a major European city which are the first destinations of those exercising our options? London, Paris, Berlin, Barcelona, Dublin ... Also topped the charts, in a sort of popularity contest. Eastern Europe instead is perhaps associated only with places from the fun easy and inexpensive as Prague and Tallinn. That, with the increase of tourist, have become clever and have begun to raise prices. In view, however, of an improvement in services. Perhaps the cities on this side of the continent will not be blazoned monuments like the Eiffel Tower or the Sagrada Familia, but the lack of advertising does not mean the absence of things to see. Indeed, sites and attractions, there are too many. That's why we are forced to make a selection of the eastern cities, some far from complete. Because remember that there are not only the capital, but Europe is full of hidden jewels just waiting to be found.

Let's start with our neighbor, Slovenia. The capital Ljubljana is without doubt one of the most beautiful cities. It is immediately apparent from the postcard that sees the Alps in the background, and the Ljubljanica river flowing through the city. Walking the streets in the warm sunny days you will have the company of bicycles and many students, which alone accounted for a quarter of the population. It is the old town with its cafes, you need to look, rather than the great attractions, though not lacking museums and galleries. The city is a mix of Baroque houses, bridges and churches: you can have a broad overview from the castle hill. In summer you can enjoy a concert in the outdoor theater Križanke, while in winter you are just a 30-minute drive from the ski resorts of Kravek. The lakes Bled and Bohinj are waiting for water sports, hiking and cycling.

And the Euro remains expensive, travelling in Italy will be a real challenge for budget-minded travellers.
Not sure how long you're going to be over there, and how set you are on staying in Italy... but one budget-minded option would be to train due East to Slovenia, and possibly even south from there into Croatia. However, my apologies if this advice doesn't work with your plans.
