    Hi All,

    I’ve had many holidays over the years in all the tourist hot spots of Italy. I’m now thinking of a move overseas and Italy on the list alongside Portugal. But holidays are very different to living in new country…so what should I know before moving to Italy?

    Hi Zach,

    Here are my thoughts on what you need to know before moving to Italy. I hope you find them useful…

    – The cost of living is about the same as the UK, with the exception of public transport and coffee!
    – Get private health insurance – healthcare is good in Italy, but the standards vary depending on where you are in Italy
    – Brits will have to apply for a Long Stay visa or residence permit
    – Make an sure you learn some Italian before you move
    – Expect a tonne of paperwork
    – Make sure you know the conditions whether renting or buying
    – Open a bank account if you plan stay on a long-term basis
    – Open an account with currency specialist – they’ll protect you against bad exchange rates

    Finally, do your research! It can save you time, money and hassle.

    Best.
    A
