If you are thinking about moving to Italy, cost of living in probably a key consideration. Expats commented about the cost of housing...

"The average cost of housing in Italy varies greatly depending on location, size, and other factors. In general, prices tend to be higher in the cities and on the coast, and lower in smaller towns and rural locations," mentioned another expat when asked about moving to Italy.

"It really depends where you look. I bought a delightful old stone row house type of home, 4 bed, 2 bath with a large terrace and glorious view in a 500 yr old building for $54,000. It's definitely livable but could use upgrades. I also bought a penthouse 1 bedroom apt, tiny but with a great view and wrap around balcony on three sides one block outside of the old town in Vicenza with elevator and a garage parking spot for $110,000," commented one expat who made the move to Italy.
