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

"We used a realtor selected by the company. After looking at around 50 apartments (one deal fell through and we had to start all over again) we were lucky enough to find an apartment in the exclusive old city. We were very fortunate," mentioned another expat when asked about moving to Bergamo, Italy.

"When looking for a place to live in Italy, it is important to research the cities and towns that are most suitable for your lifestyle. Consider factors such as climate, cost of living, access to necessary amenities, and commuting times. Websites such as Easy Stanza and Immobiliare provide listings of available apartments, houses and other forms of accommodation, while real estate agencies like Engel & Völkers can provide customized housing searches to match individual preferences and needs. Reading local news sources and exploring the region can also help in finding a place to live that is ideal for you," commented one expat who made the move to Italy.
