When we asked people what advice they would give someone preparing to move to Turin, they said:

"Turin is a vibrant city with a rich cultural heritage and a great quality of life. Expats should be aware that the cost of living in Turin is relatively high, so it is important to budget accordingly. It is also important to note that the city is quite spread out, so having a car or reliable public transportation is essential. Additionally, the weather in Turin can be quite unpredictable, so it is important to be prepared for all types of weather. Finally, it is important to note that the language spoken in Turin is Italian, so it is beneficial to learn some basic Italian before moving to the city," remarked one expat who made the move to Turin.

"Keeping looking for the "right" place. Be willing to compromise on the small things. Make your home a nice place to go to when you feel overwhelmed--make sure it has your personality and is comfortable. Don't get the TV hooked-up for 6 months. Get out and find out about the neighborhood, social groups and learn Italian," explained one expat living in Torino, Italy.
