Cost of Living

Living in Italy

Italy is an attractive place to live and work because of its world-famous food, beautiful countryside and pleasant Mediterranean weather. The cost of living is reasonable compared to other parts of Europe, especially for locally-produced foods. The Italian people are renowned for being loud, proud, stylish and sociable. It's advisable for foreigners to learn some Italian, especially if travelling outside the main cities and away from the touristy regions. Italy's long coastline means it has some beautiful beaches, ideal for short breaks during your free time.
