We asked retirees what it is like retiring in Italy. They said...

"We are connected to ex-pats in near towns. We live in a quiet hill town which is a beach resort in the summer with music and activies. There are religious and cultural festivals and film and music festivals. We work an olive/fruit grove, go to the beach and hike in the mountains. I also volunteer and participate in local archeology work and we enjoy food preparation and preservation. We are within 2 hours of Rome and 1 hour of Naples by train giving unlimited activities," remarked another expat in Minturno, Italy.

"Retirees in Italy and its surroundings enjoy a high quality of life thanks to the country’s rich cultural attractions, natural beauty and delicious cuisine. With its unique climate and laid-back atmosphere, Italy provides retirees with ample opportunities for recreation and leisure activities. Expats can take advantage of a vibrant arts, music and theatre scene, explore landmarks and monuments, and also take advantage of its many outdoor activities, including hiking, biking and kayaking in the numerous national parks and coastline areas. For those looking for more nightlife and entertainment, Italy's capital, Rome, and other big cities offer plenty of choices, including pubs and clubs, live music, and local theaters. There is also a thriving expat community, making the transition to living in Italy easier and more enjoyable," said a member in Italy.
