Licensing requirements (6 replies)

Hello, I’m Anna. I will be retiring at the end of 2021 and will be relocating permanently to Tuscany in 1Q22 to be near family and friends. I have dual citizenship (US/Italy). I do not need or wish to work, so there’s no problem in that regard. I’ve done extensive forecasting and am satisfied that I can live a comfortable life in retirement in Italy. I know, in bocca a lupo... My question is regarding my best friend, who is a psychotherapist. And who wants to join me in Italy. He will need to continue working for the foreseeable future. Does anyone know what licensing requirements are for therapists or to whom he needs to speak to get the process in motion? Thank you in advance for assistance.

Apartment in Florence (13 replies)

My husband and I will be retiring next year and want to live in Florence for one year and travel through Italy. I'm leery about the online apartment sites being scams. Any suggestions on how to find an apartment with a reputable company without paying an arm & leg in fees? Should I travel to Florence to see apts. in person? Isn't having a lease on a place a requirement for the travel visa? Anything on this subject would be helpful. Thank you :)
