An Expat Talks about Moving to Minturno, Italy


Minturno, Italy

An expat in Italy shares some thoughts about moving to Minturno, Italy, including how they gradually moved there and the costs associated with the transition. Also includes some ideas for what to bring to Italy with you, and what to leave at home.

Minturno

Name three things that you wish you had brought and three you wish you had left at home.

Wish we had brought: 4 foot level, zip lock freezer bags, Hersheys cocoa powder. We didn't really bring anything non-essential or without meaning.

What advice would you give someone preparing to move to your area about the actual move, choosing a neighborhood and finding a home?

We moved over a 3 year period giving us time to adjust 2 weeks at a time. We brought only things meaningful (family items), clothes, some small furniture items and will continue bringing things such as art work each trip we return to/from US. Find a place where the people seem helpful and friendly. Very few speak English here, but we found some wonderful people from the beginning that welcomed us and helped convince us that this was home. You shouldn't feel completely comfortable - this is an adventure. That said, we found a small town in a semi- rural community much like we were use to in the US. We found beauty and the targets we had identified - railway, sea, mountains, nature preserves, archeology and great food.

What type of housing do you live in? Is this typical for most expats in your area?

Apartment, there is only one other expat couple in town and they followed us here.

How did you choose your neighborhood and find your home or apartment?

Searched the internet for months before arrival to become familiar with the area. Stumbled upon our purchase by accident at our first visit..

Are your housing costs higher or lower than they were in your home country? What is the average cost of housing there?

Lower cost for initial purchase. Check the internet real estate sites. Cost is based on location and housing requirement just like anywhere. We downsized a bit in the process as part of a life plan.
