I'm Betty. My husband will be teaching in Rome this coming fall, and we will live there from the end of August until just before Christmas. The biggest challenge right now is making arrangements to fly our two Golden Retrievers with us. We plan to rent an apartment outside of Rome and use public transportation to/from/within Rome. We'll rent or lease a car in which we can transport the dogs and visit other Italian cities. I've read about the Renault and Peugeot short-term lease programs, and wonder what other options there might be. Thanks for any input!

Hi,

new to this site but I am more than likely moving to Sicily in the next month for work. I have lived in Germany and the Netherlands and traveled extensively throughout Europe. I am looking forward to Sicily but do not have much info to go on about the local COLA or the transition to the local culture. I have heard it is pretty closed off to outsiders culturally but does anyone have any relevant information?

Hello mxlife, I've lived most my life in Sicily, near Palermo and I'm also a full blooded, I guess if you've met Sicilians anywhere else in the world is almost the same as meeting Sicilians here, I think you will feel in a different world here, everything is different here, Italian lifestyle is known to be relaxing life style.... well... it's not steretype so forget about everything on time, everything works as it should, etc. etc. Sicily is like an adventure could be fun for some people or stressing for others, people are friendly if they get to know you but at first they can be careless expecially in the big cities such Palermo! An advice... try to learn Italian as much as you can cause in Sicily not many people speak english and most of them don't understand it much! For any other questions just ask! Ciaoo and good luck!

Hi. My husband and I are in Bergamo from the USA. I am looking for some sources (forums, locations) to meet other English speaking people in this area. I am currently active on Meetups.com. Any ideas?

Default 58 year old looking for an adventure in the 3rd chapter of my life.

Right now what I really want is to find a place in Italy (close or by the sea) that I can just be. Make friends, take walks, cafes, cooking in and eating out. Just to be a part of something that is out of my comfort zone. I have traveled and lived in Berlin for a summer a few years back. I would like to rent an efficiency in a locations that is affordable and I don't feel to isolated for a month to get my bearings. I was in Barcelona last year for a week an loved it as well. I have looked at Portofino and that area.
Question... would anyone have any suggestions for a location with transportation but a sense of isolation from the tourist (well not complete isolation) I speak no Italian and not seeking a wild life but a life with character and soul of the Italian experience. I know this will be a challenge for someone single and my age but I am up for the adventure. Nothing lost nothing gained.

Dwight

Hi Dwight, You may get more specific replies if you post a separate enquiry instead of in the 'introduce yourself' section. Good luck!

Buongiorno!
I live in Piedmont, Italy, and I've found this forum looking for information for a friend of mine who's moving from the UK to Italy in these days.
I've registered because I think it would be kind to give help to people moving to this area: as an Italian, and having travelled quite a lot, I fully understand how frustrating it can be to face some aspects of our culture and attitude, and I think that sometimes an "insider point of view" can help.
On the other side, there are thousands of other aspects that make this country a great place to live, and I am proud to help foreigners discover all of them.
ciao ciao
