We have 4 small children and need to think about gas, travel around Europe, basic grocery costs, medical needs, rent, utilities, phone bills, etc. I have yet to find an international cost of living calculator that compares the USA to Italy. Does anyone have any information or suggestions? Thank you for any help...sorry for the rambling!
Hi, I am new to this site. My name is MaryAnn and I have the same question. How do they afford it? We will be visiting Calabria and hope to live in Italy for good within 2 to 3 years. If someone responds to your question, could you relay it to me, please. Appreciated.

Meals And Ice Cream Are Very Reasonable Even Pizza 5 Euros So Cheap Supermarkets Are Too. Only Problem Is Italian Parking And Eratic Drivers. I Really Love Their Warmth And Religious Connections Centre Of Their Life High Family Values! Many Younger Ladies And Gents Just Hang Round Cafes And Ice Cream Parlours What A Breath Of Fresh Air?

Hi, I'm a new member to this forum. I think that in Calabria like everywhere in Europe at the moment the cost of living is slowly going up. Since the intoduction of the euro things have been getting more and more expensive but it's still cheaper than the uk!
Ice cream: 1.90
Fish meal at restaurant for two: about 60
Margherita pizza 4.50
Petrol is about 1.56
Espresso 70cents

I've been living in Calabria 10 years and house prices have shot up! Too much!

Hope I've helped in some way!
