What do I need to know about living in Modena?

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

"Before retiring in Modena, expats should be aware that the cost of living is relatively high compared to other parts of the country. Additionally, the climate is generally mild, with hot summers and cold winters. Expats should also be aware that the city is quite small, so it may be difficult to find a wide variety of activities and entertainment. Furthermore, the city is quite traditional and conservative, so expats should be prepared to respect local customs and traditions. Finally, expats should be aware that the language barrier may be an issue, as Italian is the primary language spoken in Modena," remarked one expat who made the move to Modena.
