The InterNations Expat Guide for working and living in Italy

Are you an expat working and living in Italy? Or are you preparing to move soon to Rome, Napoli or any other of the Italian international hotspots?

Expat life in Italy has much to offer and provides a great intercultural experience – from discovering the countryside like hot and dry Apulia, full of ancient footsteps left by Greek, Arab, and Norman settlers, learning how Italian people celebrate Ferragosto, up to tasting Italy’s favorite dishes such as minestrone.

However, InterNations does not only address expats in Italy. We have brief overview guides for various locations around the world – from living in Cyprus to living in Costa Rica.

Working and living in Italy – Valuable Information from A to Z

Moving to and living in Italy requires a wealth of up-to-date, trustworthy information on various aspects of Italian expat life. Living abroad in Italy raises a lot of questions such as: ʺHow do I find the best relocation services for moving to Italy?ʺ, ʺHow do I best deal with "red tape" and Italian bureaucracy?ʺ, ʺWhich international school in Rome should our kids attend?ʺ or, ʺHow do I obtain a work permit for my spouse at the Italian municipality in Milan?ʺ

Collecting all that information on working and living in Italy is quite laborious and time-consuming. Our InterNations Expat Guide for Italy aims to help you and provides you with reliable info on those topics that matter to expats living in Italy. The Guide includes information on many different areas ranging from administration and finance, to culture & sights or food and shopping, up to health-care. Typical questions related to expat life abroad, such as ʺHow do I go about finding some non-touristy restaurants with traditional cuisine?ʺ, will no longer remain unanswered.
