Hello,

Please share your tips about living in Milan. It would be great to learn about housing, schools, health care, Italian courses, locations of grocery stores, taxes, etc. Thank you in advance.

Regards,
Stan

I can't think of many tips that are specific to Milan. What information are you looking for exactly?

I live an hour away and find Milan a bit like London in that it's very expensive and you get completely lost if you drive about! Are you coming from the UK? I know there are Bilingual schools in Monza at least (just outside Milan) but you pay the price. Other than that it would depend where exactly you go as to what the local school would be. In an OFSTED report recently (survey of all countries in developed world) Italy came out well for schooling so I would say your children could do well here. My top tip for living in Milan is to not trust the road signs, they are RUBBISH!!! Good luck!

Just curious. Rubbish in what way? Not that I'm planning to drive in Milan. I'm still too scared to drive in England, and I've lived here three years now.

The road signs send you entirely the wrong way! We drove round and round and round...for ages once in Milan, the signs for where you want to go will be there one minute and then they disapear leaving you guessing and driving in circles! We had just driven over from the UK so after a 14 hour drive in a luton van it was a nightmare!!

Ooh, I sympathize! We actually had a similar experience in Florida. Long flight from the UK, then eternal driving in circles trying to find our hotel - in a really LARGE rental vehicle. I was a nervous wreck by the time we finally got there.

They probably took lessons from the people who do road signs in Pennsyvania, or maybe all the Italian immigrants imported the skill. A favorite trick is to put the sign after you need it, so you know you missed your turn or whatever.

Ah, I wonder if Bill Cosby (an American comedian) travelled much in Pennsylvania. Many years ago he commented on how helpful it was to see a "bump" sign after you'd gone over the bump so you'd know what you had hit.
