Italy is located in southern Europe and has a population of approximately 60 million people. With an immensely rich cultural heritage, Italy is well known for its Roman history, fashion, football, cuisine, literature and art.

The country also has a reputation for producing luxurious, high quality products, whether they’re designer dresses by Versace or sports cars by Ferrari.

If you’re moving to Italy you’ll find that the people are friendly and willing to help you learn the language. Many younger people have a good grasp of English, so if you haven’t learnt any Italian by the time you arrive you should be able to manage until you do.

However, many official documents, such as those to do with the government or banking, are only available in Italian, so it would be a good idea to book into language classes if you’re not confident with this.
