What do I need to know before moving to Minturno?

Live in Minturno? Answer this Question

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

"We moved over a 3 year period giving us time to adjust 2 weeks at a time. We brought only things meaningful (family items), clothes, some small furniture items and will continue bringing things such as art work each trip we return to/from US. Find a place where the people seem helpful and friendly. Very few speak English here, but we found some wonderful people from the beginning that welcomed us and helped convince us that this was home. You shouldn't feel completely comfortable - this is an adventure. That said, we found a small town in a semi- rural community much like we were use to in the US. We found beauty and the targets we had identified - railway, sea, mountains, nature preserves, archeology and great food," explained one expat living in Minturno, Italy.
