What do I need to know about living in Perugia?
When we asked people what advice they would give someone preparing to move to Perugia, they said:
"Before retiring in Perugia, expats should be aware that the cost of living is higher than in many other parts of the country. Additionally, the language barrier can be a challenge, as Italian is the primary language spoken in the city. Expats should also be aware that the city is quite hilly, so having a car or access to public transportation is essential. Furthermore, expats should research the healthcare system in Perugia to ensure they have access to the medical care they need. Finally, expats should be aware that the city is quite small, so it may not offer the same amenities as larger cities," wrote one member in Perugia.
