Why Move to Italy?

Italy's picturesque scenery, Dolce Vita lifestyle, and tasty cuisine draw thousands of visitors and expats worldwide, but the country has so much more to offer.

Here's why you should consider moving to Italy:

Work-Life Balance

Those who want to get away from the fast-paced life would love Italy. Italians savour every moment and prefer to take things slow. They love to take midday naps, don't worry about calories, and have leisure dinners on weeknights. So, if you're looking for a life away from the hustle and bustle, Italy is the place to be.

Cost of Living

Living in Italy is quite affordable when compared to other countries. Although the biggest cities like Florence and Milan are expensive, other parts of the country are still quite reasonable. Real estate prices are a steal in the city and rural areas, with three-bedroom apartments ranging between €1,000 and €2,000. Transport routes are also well facilitated, reducing additional costs.


Visiting other European countries is much easier when you are already based in Italy. The country has excellent transit options, like flights and trains, to travel to and from the UK. The ticket prices are also cheap, thanks to low-budget airlines. Furthermore, scenic views are just a few miles away, guaranteeing every weekend can feel like a vacation.


Moving from the UK to Italy involves several key considerations to ensure a smooth transition. Post-Brexit, UK citizens need a visa to stay in Italy for more than 90 days, and a residency permit must be obtained within 8 days of arrival for extended stays. Healthcare is a crucial aspect, with the European Health Insurance Card (EHIC) only valid for short-term stays, making it essential to register with the Italian Health Service (SSN) for long-term coverage.

Deciding whether to rent or buy property is another significant decision. Renting initially can be practical while familiarizing yourself with the area. Proficiency in Italian is often necessary for employment, so learning the language is vital. Researching the job market and understanding Italian employment contracts will aid in securing a job.

If moving with children, understanding the education system and exploring options like public, private, and international schools is important. Financially, opening an Italian bank account and understanding the cost of living compared to the UK will help manage expenses. Tax residency rules and local taxes, such as property tax (IMU), should be thoroughly understood to avoid legal issues.

Adapting to cultural differences, social norms, and the Italian lifestyle is essential for integration. Building a social network can provide support during this transition. Understanding public transport and possibly exchanging a UK driving license for an Italian one will aid in getting around.

Registering residency at the local Anagrafe office and ensuring all necessary documents are in order, such as passports and proof of income, is crucial. Setting up mobile phone service, internet, and utilities like electricity and gas should be prioritized. For those with pets, adhering to regulations for microchipping, vaccinations, and pet passports is necessary.

By addressing these key considerations, your move from the UK to Italy can be well-planned and less stressful, allowing you to enjoy your new life in Italy.
