What advice to expats in Venice have about housing?

Answer this Question

When we asked people living in Venice about the social scene there, they described it saying...

"Expats in Venice often advise newcomers to be patient and thorough when searching for housing. They suggest using a reputable real estate agent to help navigate the unique housing market in Venice. It's also recommended to visit the property in person before making any decisions, as pictures can often be misleading. Expats also advise to be aware of the high water levels in Venice, which can cause flooding in some areas. Therefore, it's important to check if the property has any flood protection measures in place. They also suggest considering the location of the property in relation to amenities such as grocery stores, restaurants, and public transportation. Some areas of Venice are more residential and quiet, while others are bustling with tourists. Renting before buying is another common piece of advice, as it allows you to get a feel for the city and its different neighborhoods before making a long-term commitment. Lastly, expats in Venice often remind newcomers that living in Venice can be quite different from visiting as a tourist. The city's charm and beauty come with challenges such as high living costs and the inconvenience of getting around without a car. Therefore, it's important to be prepared for these realities before deciding to move to Venice," explained one expat living in Venice, Italy.
