What do I need to know before moving to Rapallo?

Answer this Question

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

"Rapallo is a beautiful coastal town in the Liguria region, known for its picturesque views and relaxed lifestyle. Before moving there, expats should know that the primary language spoken is Italian, so learning the basics of the language would be beneficial. The cost of living in Rapallo is relatively high compared to other Italian cities, especially for housing, as it is a popular tourist destination. The town is small, so most places are within walking distance, but there is also a reliable public transportation system. The healthcare system in Italy is of a high standard and is accessible to all residents, including expats. However, it's recommended to have private health insurance to cover any additional costs. Rapallo has a Mediterranean climate with hot summers and mild winters, so it's important to prepare for this type of weather. The town is also known for its seafood, so those who enjoy seafood will be in for a treat. The Italian culture places a high value on family and leisure time, so be prepared for a slower pace of life compared to other countries. Also, shops and businesses often close in the afternoon for a few hours, a tradition known as "riposo". Rapallo is a safe town with a low crime rate, but like any place, it's important to take basic safety precautions. Lastly, it's important to note that Italy has a high tax rate, so it's crucial to understand the tax obligations before moving," commented one expat who made the move to Rapallo, Italy.
