What do I need to know about living in Genoa?

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

"Before retiring in Genoa, expats should be aware of the cost of living, which is higher than the national average. They should also research the local healthcare system and the availability of medical services. Additionally, expats should familiarize themselves with the local culture and customs, as well as the language, to ensure a smooth transition. It is also important to research the local job market and the availability of housing, as well as the public transportation system. Finally, expats should consider the climate and the weather in Genoa, as it can be quite humid and hot in the summer months," explained one expat living in Genoa, Italy.

"Be prepared for lots of form filling and walking up and down hills. Genova is very, very hilly. Relatively un-touristed other then by Italians, and, in my opinion, an undiscovered treasure as far as the English are concerned," said one expat in Genoa.
