Re: Rome in one day?

I don't think Rome in one day is possible. IMO maybe you could spend half a day at the Colosseum/Roman forum/Palatine and then half a day in the historical centre (Piazza Navona, more churches than...

Re: Property in Sardegna

Ha - I'd like to see you try to surf in Sardinia. :rofl:

Re: Schools, teachers, kids and parents. Education in general.

Lorna - I hate that whole 'let's tar the entire group with the same brush' thing which they seem to have in Italian schools. My colleague was just telling me how her 12 year old son's entire class...

Re: Goodbye Mario. Thanks for the IMU.

I know a lot of Italians who voted for him in the past and would vote for him again. And they're not old and not stupid. I just don't get it.:confused:

Re: Italian Tax

I'm confused - why would you pay UK taxes on an Italian holiday let or B&B??? If it's located here, you pay Italian tax. Or maybe I'm missing something.

Re: Opening a business?

My husband runs a small business here and it's definitely not for the faint of heart and I have no idea how you'd manage if you didn't speak fluent Italian. He spends a huge amount of time dealing...

Re: Young couple move to Italy

How is your and your partner's Italian? Without fluent Italian your job options will be very limited although there's always teaching English. But maybe you're fluent already? Earning enough to...

Re: Pension Question

Hi just to piggyback onto this thread. How many years do I have to work here to theoretically get some kind of Italian pension at retirement age? Is it 20 years as modicasa says? Does that mean...

Re: Having a baby in Italy in 2011

Re: ECB Property Price Statistics

Are those stats available for different parts of Italy. We're in Rome and prices here don't seem to have really dropped but apparently there is a TON of negotiability now. I wonder about rents too.

Re: Schools, teachers, kids and parents. Education in general.

Just got to vent for a moment. At my 4 year old's preschool lots of parents bring younger children in strollers to pick up their kids. However, the school (built in the 19th century) has a set of...

I realise that the entire Italian pension system will probably go belly up before we're entitled to anything but I was just wondering, in theory, how does it work? For example, say I pay my INPS...

Re: Schools, teachers, kids and parents. Education in general.

Re: Milan expats - cost of living/jobs
