Moving to Italy for a year. How-to? Much hassle, etc?
Well, my girlfriend and me have for a long while talked about moving to Italy for a year when she got pregnant (she could have her maternity leave there, and since I'm just a lowly hired consultant, it wouldn't be a problem for me either), and now it seems it is time to start planning and saving up!
Would it be a lot of hassle to move there for a year?
What do we need to fix and take care of?
I know language is an issue, and I'm actually studying l'italiano as we speak, but what else?
Right now my biggest problem is deciding which part of Italy I'd like to move to!
(being a football nutter, clubs and such kinda takes precedence in regards to region and town)
We kinda want to live close to a city, but not right smack in the middle of a large one. This is after all to relax and reduce the pace while waiting for our first little one.
Want to move to Italy...
First of all, congratulations on your 'future event'. There is quitea lot to do regarding staying here for a year, but for European Community citizens it is much, much easier.
Your best bet would be to look at the Expats in Italy site. There are some really big threads on their Forum that will answer many of your questions. And it's free.
