What do I need to know before retiring in Amalfi?

Answer this Question

When we asked people what advice they would give someone preparing to move to Amalfi, they said...

"Expats considering retirement in Amalfi, should be aware that the cost of living can be high, especially in terms of housing and dining out. It's important to have a good understanding of the Italian language, as English is not widely spoken, especially among the older population. Healthcare in Italy is of a high standard, but it's recommended to have a comprehensive health insurance plan. The Italian healthcare system can be complex to navigate, especially for non-Italian speakers. The pace of life in Amalfi is slower than in many other places, which can be a big adjustment for some people. The local culture places a strong emphasis on enjoying life, with a focus on good food, wine, and socializing. The weather in Amalfi is typically Mediterranean, with hot summers and mild winters. However, the town can get quite crowded during the peak tourist season, which runs from April to October. Public transportation in Amalfi is reliable, but the town's steep, narrow streets can make driving challenging. Many expats choose to walk or use scooters to get around. Italy has a high tax rate, and understanding the tax system can be complicated. It's recommended to seek advice from a tax professional who is familiar with both Italian and your home country's tax laws. Finally, it's important to note that while Amalfi is a beautiful and charming place, it may not offer all the amenities and conveniences of a larger city. Therefore, it's important to visit and spend some time there before making a decision to retire in Amalfi," wrote a member who made the move to Amalfi, Italy.
