We continue our journey to the best places in Italy by car.
After Milan and Como, now we move to the centre of Italy:
ROME & VITERBO
Rome is another city in Italy that is extremely expensive. If you are looking for a 600-square-foot apartment in the centre of Rome, it would cost, on average, about $1,200 per month.
Suppose you go an hour outside of Rome to the city of Viterbo, a charming overlooked town on a hill with medieval towers, many cultural events, and a friendly atmosphere. In that case, the same apartment will cost you $450 monthly. And it will be a furnished apartment in the city centre.
FLORENCE & PISA
Tuscany certainly draws a lot of tourist attention and can be very expensive. If you are going to live in Tuscany, anywhere between Florence and Siena, it will be costly.
Many people think Pisa is expensive because it attracts a lot of tourists. However, the Leaning Tower of Pisa is on the edge of the town, and many tourists need to go to the city centre.
Pisa is a thriving city with a renowned university and excellent healthcare (it is one of the best cities for healthcare in Italy), and everything is highly affordable there.
Pisa is also very similar to Florence in terms of ambience, and like Florence, it is located along the Arno River. It features towers and a medieval atmosphere, and Florence is a short train ride away.
It is the geographic centre of Italy, located between Rome and Florence. Umbria embodies an agricultural setting, with fields of sunflowers, grapevines, and olive groves. Many ex-pats are looking for a great rural, hill town atmosphere, with some antiquity, old stones, and quaint buildings in the city centre.
Padova is a perfect spot for long-term living and is the cheapest place to live in Italy (assuming you still want to live in some urban area).
You can find this relatively small town in the northeastern part of Italy, about 24 miles west of Venice.
There are many beautiful historical sites in Padova and the University of Padua. The city has a population of approximately 209,000 people, making it the ideal size for a quieter pace of life with almost all the conveniences a big city has.
Padova is also connected by train and bus to Venice and Milan and has a small airport with short flights to Rome.
The cost of living in Padova is the lowest compared to the places previously mentioned in this article, so it can be a solid choice to start your life in Italy on a budget.
SOUTH ITALY: PUGLIA
If you are looking for a mild climate and authentic lifestyle with friendly and active people around you, with excellent food, the province of Puglia is a great option. It is close to the sea, with access to the Ionic and Adriatic coast, so you can easily walk to the beach.
If you prefer to avoid towns on a hill, there are also some inland plateau towns in the region: Lecce and Martina Franca.
On average, the rental cost is $450-$800 per month for a cosy and furnished apartment in the city centre, with your neighbourhood coffee bar right outside your door, along with a wide selection of restaurants within walking distance.
You can move around all these cities or the smallest town by car.
In this case, you need to have your ID Driven card translated.
