What do I need to know about living in Parma?

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

"Parma is a great place to retire for expats looking for a slower pace of life. The city is known for its rich cultural heritage, delicious cuisine, and beautiful countryside. Expats should be aware that the cost of living in Parma is higher than in other parts of Italy, so it is important to budget accordingly. Additionally, the language barrier can be a challenge for expats, so it is important to learn some basic Italian before moving to Parma. Finally, expats should be aware that the healthcare system in Italy is different than in other countries, so it is important to research the system and find out what kind of coverage is available," wrote a member in Parma.
