What do I need to know before moving to Parma?

Live in Parma? Answer this Question

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

"Start early and look at everything that you can. You cannot tell what a place is like from pictures or even from the outside. Also, try to find a local that can help you," said another expat in Parma.

How do I find a place to live in Parma?

Live in Parma? Answer this Question

We asked expats how they chose their neighborhood and found a place to live. They answered:

"We were desperate as we couldn't find anything to fit our needs so we just took the one we could find. It is not a great fit for us and we have continued to search for another apartment to no avail. Italy is a place where you have to know someone and we are just now finding those connections after 2 years," remarked another expat in Parma.
