I am James, I am moving to Bari in December with my family. Well, actually my family are already there settling in before I finish the contract I am on in the UK. So advice on moving to the Puglia region would be much appreciated.

Now he has to return to Italy and I am planning on making the move with him.

I am trying to do research on my own, but it is very difficult and so I am here to get advice on how to move to Italy.

It seems to me that teaching English may be my best avenue for getting a visa. I have a TESL certificate and about 5 years of experience teaching in South Korea and Japan. I also have my master's degree in translation, though I do not think it will help me much in this situation because my language pair is Japanese to US English.

I hoping to find some practical advice on this forum the best places to look for a teaching position (specifically in Torino) and any other advice people can spare.


Hi Patricia, I hope the move to Torino goes well. I returned to the UK from Torino last year. Whilst I was there I sent my son to the International School of Turin (IST). It was a good school with a mix of locals and foreign students. The classes where taught in English, but the children did have lessons in Italian. It is on the road between Pecetto Torinese and Chieri. (Strada Chieri I think). The only down side to this is it is not in Torino itself & is about a 30 minute drive from the centre of town. There is a website, google search International School Of Turin.
I hope this helps.
James

Hello I am Angela.

I spent quite a few months in South Italy in 1999 and fell in love with the place. The plan was for me to retire there in just under 20 years. I have now found myself in a position where I don't have to wait for retirement.

I have a few loose ends to tie up here but I hope that by this time next year I will be packed and ready to go.

I look forward to chatting to people on this site and delving into the well of knowledge of the expats that have been there and done that.

Exclamation Advice please!

Hi Guys, I'm a newbie from Ireland and hoping to move to Italy in the next few months. I'm looking for any advice you may have please!

I'm hoping to move to Verona, my boyfriend is from there and is italian....I can speak a little bit but understand it much more and I am learning. Also i'm currently in the middle of doing a TEFL course so that I can teach english too. I have a lot of retail and hospitality experience but I understand that work in these areas might not be easy to get because of the language barrier.

Can anyone recommend a good area to start off in for work just so that I can get some bit of income coming in straight away? I'm happy to move over there as soon as I either get a job or have a little bit more money in my account saved!

Any advice I might be able to get from you will be much appreciated

Hi all hoping to move to Italy, my OH is half Italian, got the expat bug after living 4 years in Valencia, cheesed off with the UK and having to spend half the year skulking indoors, looking at Abruzzo and le Marche at the moment, I am a builder and electrician and some of those run down casas look very tempting. I have a good forces pension and we hopefully will be over there in the summer!

Default retiring to Italy

My husband is retiring in 2015. We live in USA and want to live in Italy. Over the past 15 years we have been to Italy 7 times so have an idea where we want to live. Should we go by word of mouth or get an agent when looking to rent an apartment? Anyone have advice?

Hi! My mum's family is from the Sospirolo/Cortina areas of Italy and I spent a lot of time over there when I was young, with my nan. My partner and I are going to take a holiday over there this summer with a view to moving over there permanently.
We'll be looking further down as the winters in the Dolomites isn't for me!
