Default Moving to Italy?

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I may be moving my wife and 3 small children to Italy early next year, and I am looking to live outside a major city (45 to 60 km), have pleasant weather conditions, and do so without a significant increase in a cost of living from where I am in Austin, Texas (where a family can live rather comfortably on $200,000 USD yearly).
Any advice on affordable, rural areas near a major Italian city would be great.

As a side note, in case it matters, I am expecting to be paid as a contractor directly from my U.S. based company in dollars, and this may complicate the process.

Thanks,
John

Your spoiled for choice. 45-60km is considered way out of town. Pick your favorite city and draw a circle.

Remember rural will mean no train or bus line likely. So everybody in the family will need a car. Rural can be very lonely.

OTOH since most Italians would rather be closer/in the cities you'll have plenty of low cost choices. OTOH you'll need to find something already renovated.

I was thinking more of living in a smaller town outside a major town, like the ones around Milan or Genoa.

Anyone living in a smaller town like this, that is on a trainline that can provide some insight?

Thanks,

Considering you are moving sooner than me, I will probably be asking you for advice...

Do you already have a visa for Italy?

I am interested in moving to Italy and was wondering what kind of profession you are in. I work in marketing and have a wide skill set. Any ideas within your organization. Also, as for places to live, it all depends on what lifestlye you wish to have. Rome is a great city, Amalfi coast is fantastic, but not a huge business center, other than tourism. Let me know. Thanks. - Jeremy
