12 Reasons to Move to Italy
Ever wanted to live the "dolce vita"? Then move to Italy!
Need convincing? Read on for the twelve reasons why it is the best lifestyle change you'll ever make...
1) The Most Beautiful Cities on Earth
Can anywhere on earth compare to cities like Florence, Rome and Venice?
Of course Italian towns and villages are wonderful too... and Italy's security system is state of the art ;-) Italy is one of the safest countries on earth - you'll find how it compares to your country here.
2) Food & Wine of Course
You could eat a different dish every night for the next one hundred years and still not have tasted a fraction of the dishes Italy has to offer. Each region, each town, each village has something all its own...and it is sure to be delicious.
And the wine? Well you could drink a bottle a day for the rest of your life and not get to a fraction of them.
If you want some to get started with my wine site has a few ideas.
3) Weekend Escapes to Villages like Asolo & Portofino
Wherever you live in Italy you're never more than an hour's drive to little towns such as Asolo, seaside gems like Vernazza and Portofino or entire regions like Tuscany. And with Italy's fantastic high-speed rail network, you can get pretty much anywhere on Italy's mainland quickly - even Calabria is easily reached. You'll find everything about the train network and ten unforgettable rail journeys you will love here.
Most of the world's great artists have come from Italy and there are more UNESCO World Heritage Sites here than in any other country on earth. Need I say more? Well, I guess I could share this link to the ten top sights in Italy with you. If that is not enough then have a look at these 12 awesome churches.
No matter where you live in Italy it's likely you'll have a stunning view. It could be of mountains, spires and towers or the sea - like the view above taken from the Santa Caterina on the Amalfi Coast.
6) The Incredible People
The Italian social network isn't online. It's in the piazza. Don't worry though you'll always get lots of likes and plenty of gossip too. Did I mention that Italians are also the healthiest people on earth? Well they are - here is the proof.
Ca' Foscari University, Venice
With four of the world's ten oldest universities and many of them rated among the best in Europe is it any wonder that Italy is home to products like Ferrari cars?
Plus, once you're an Italian or EU citizen, education is pretty much free from Grade 1 to the end of high school and university fees are a tiny fraction of what they are in the UK or USA.
8) The Language
More like an expression of love and a way of life. Once you've learned Italian you become Italian and see the world in new and wonderful ways. Here are some resources to help you get started.
9) The Cars are Cute
Not only are there fancy Italian cars, like Ferrari, but also cute little ones made by Fiat. The car has played a defining role in US history, but that is also the case in Italy. Read here to see how one car symbolized the golden era of Italian history.
10) Italians Love Children
You'll never hear Italians grumbling and whining about your kids. Italians love children! You can take them anywhere, and your welcome will always be warmer when they are with you.
Old or young, the romance of Italy will touch even the most jaded of souls. This is the country to "feel the love". There are so many romantic places to visit as well, one of our favorites is Lake Orta.
In Italy even the Carabinieri (a type of police) look stylish so if you're a fashionista you'll not find a better country than Italy. Let's face it most of the great designers of anything from shoes, to bags to suits are Italian and even the smallest town has a store selling the latest moda (style). Get to Italy then and go shopping crazy!
