re the health card issue not sure as i am retired so not an issue i had to consider but i think you just have to prove you have a certain amount in the bank to cover for emergencies and then wait until you start claiming your pension when you are entitled to health care as an eu Citizen. re winters in abruzzo depends..... they are cold for sure but the amount of snow can vary this year there was very little but the year before about 2 metres but really that was exceptional. normally not much and only lasts for a week if that.

With the tax crack downs it might be cheaper to just get health insurance.

You would need to check with Ireland if they'd give you the current EU health card. The numbers keep changing but if you surf over to the EU website it should be easy enough to find.

In Italy unless you're working you'll need private cover until your Irish pension kicks in. Or the EU card from Ireland.

Thanks for the timely response
I guess the higher you get the colder it can be so I feel encouraged that I could survive Italian winters after 25 yrs in Hawaii.

Health insurance in Italy appears to be so much cheaper in Italy than the USA so I think that would make sense

I've been following this thread, and I have a question.
I am US citizen, living in the US. I hope to retire in Italy. However, I have come to the realization...I am not one to completely retire.
Is it possible for my sister and I to have a B&B and contribute to the tax system, and receive health insurance in Italy? By that I mean, would we be on the Italian health system? I've checked into private health insurance as an expat....I just about fainted!

Thanks!
