Living in Italy
Summary: Some expats talk about the ups and downs of living in Italy. “I don’t like to go to Italy because I will end up spending too much money. The problem with Italy is that every country has a different way of doing things. If you are a person that doesn’t like to be around people, then maybe this place is not for you,” said another expat from Australia. “There is so much bureaucracy everywhere in Italy, it’s a shock to the system. It’s kind of like living in Spain, you know what I mean.”
“From the time one gets here, everything seems so slow. You really need to learn how to respect the system because if you don’t know what’s acceptable, you will get in big trouble. bureaucracy is everywhere in Italy,” said one Australian expat from Melbourne. “You have to learn the language or you will be at such a big disadvantage.”
” Italians are known for their frugality, but even so there is very little where the expats can get away without doing some form of business. It may seem that living in Italy is the best of all worlds. But there is so much more to a country than merely enjoying its natural beauty, or being able to speak the language fluently,” said another Australian living in Italy. “A lot of people who have made the decision to live in Italy underestimate the culture shock. Luckily there are still many Italian speaking people here who want to get to know their new friends,” added a third from Brisbane.
“I would say the biggest challenge is probably the language. There are many areas in Italy where you speak another language. Venice for example, has a great selection of dialects, and if you’re a real fan of opera you can make great friends there,” said another from Florence.
Italy has a very diverse landscape. Each district has its own character and you’ll easily find something in Italy to appeal to your fancy. For example the capital, Rome has gorgeous ancient architecture. The city is full of beautiful art and wonderful museums. If you love historical reenactments, you will love Italy.

Piena and Milan are the biggest cities in Italy, but Treviso is right behind them. This is the home of the famed Duomo, or the Vatican Museum.
