Does Sicily have UPS or FedEx? Will they ship larger items back to the states? Any restrictions that you know of? Thanks.

HELP! What is the best way to ship bulkier items up to 100 pounds back to the states? Are there private shippers in Sicily who can do this? What about UPS or USPS? Can I get it insured? I need to get something back by Christmas so if you would all be so kind, please provide any information you think would help.
maluza86 replied on November 16, 2014 with:
You may want to check DHL, depending on the actual size and weight of the package. I've shipped smaller items from Italy to the US via the Italian Postal system. I've also used DHL to ship suitcases from Abu Dhabi to Italy and they were reasonable, both timewise and cost.

Ciao Tutti, My wife and I are both Yoga instructors and we'll be moving to Italy in 2015. We'd like to know about your general impressions of Yoga in Italy. We are trying to get a sense of how interested people are in Yoga, or how available Yoga is in your community. Any help or comments would be greatly appreciated! Grazie Mille! Michael

I've been in many parts of Italy, and have seen flyers for yoga instructors just about everywhere - small villages included. I have a friend in Torino who has a studio and is doing quite well there (she is Italian and has had the studio for many years, so has built up a clientele). I dont know where you are thinking of moving to, but I am in the healing field as well, and had seven clients in the space of a month a few years ago when I was in Torino. Best of luck! Theresa

I live near Teramo, population ~55k, in Abruzzo. There are two yoga centers in my town. One, Arjuna, is around the corner from me and has been in operation for a long time. Most everything is possible with effort although the discretionary income of many folks in my area has taken a bit of dive in the past six years or so.

Are there specific areas in Italy where there are more expats or where there is a strong expat community?
maluza86 replied on November 12, 2014 with:
It's safe to say, there are many expats scattered throughout Italy and in different communities. It depends on where you want to live and what you hope to achieve moving to Italy. We live in a small town, San Vito Dei Normanni in Puglia... We have met numerous expat couples, many English, but several American, German and Canadian as well. We've been here 9 months and in addition to our Italian friends we've met at least 12 Expat couples.

in the Marche region , there are many English and Dutch who have decided to live or to build a holiday home. Home prices are low and renovation is a good deal. For more info you can contact us at the email

Hello there I'm new to the site and am just looking to make contact with anyone who has renovated a property themselves or even built their own property from scratch in Italy. My husband is a builder and we are looking to buy a delapidated farmhouse in Italy and we have been concentrating our search on the Le Marche region. We are only in the early stages and have not yet been out to view any property but we are trying to find out as much as we can before we do. One of the things we're struggling to find information/resources on is the cost of building materials out there. If anyone has worked on their own property and would be happy to answer some questions on this it would be greatly appreciated. Many thanks!
