Start Your Expat Life in Milan

Italy is a very diverse country, with a huge contrast between its regions, but Milan is perhaps the definitive Northern Italian city. The attractions of Italy are so well-known as to be cliché — the greatest food and wine on earth, the incredible history and culture, the weather — and they're clichés for a reason. Milan boasts a world-class reputation in cuisine, nightlife, and the arts, and there are few better places to head out for a night on the town. But it's not all about play — Milan is also a major European financial district, and the European (if not global) capital of fashion, attracting plenty of expatriates to settle down. By using our community to help you overcome any minor issues you may have with moving, you can focus fully on enjoying life in Milan.

InterNations is the largest global network for expatriates, with communities in 390 cities across the globe. Get to know fellow internationals in your city, before you're moving, or when traveling somewhere and never feel like a stranger. InterNations makes it easy for you to stay in touch with your expat friends, both online and offline, so you can grow your network of friends and contacts from all over the world. Whether they live in Khobar (Eastern Prov.) or Beijing, InterNations allows you to be close to them even if they are miles away.

Build Your Network of Expats in Milan

Our members have all been approved before joining InterNations, so you know that you'll be getting high-quality expertise and will be having a polite and courteous discussion when you decide to interact with fellow members. Your questions may be lifestyle-focused, such as finding out the best bars in Navigli, or they may be more practical queries concerning tax issues or work permits, but either way you should find our members knowledgeable and happy to assist. If you wish, you can take things further by moving your interactions offline, too our members have gotten together to form a variety of interest-based groups in Milan. So if you'd like to take advantage of Milan's world-class arts, opera, or culinary scenes but don't know where to start, we have groups for all of those things, where you can get a warm welcome to Milanese life and meet other expats face-to-face. Larger InterNations Official Events are also organized to take in a broader and more diverse range of members, so don't miss out and make sure you attend — you could meet some of the most fascinating people you'll ever encounter.
