Why Americans retire to Italy

If you’ve got a dream of saying goodbye to your working years by grabbing some real estate in Italy, then you are not alone. Over 1,100 Americans live in Florence alone!

The reality is that while many Americans planning to retire to Italy may dream of luxury Italian real estate with their own vista and pool, for many to make the dream a possibility the sums need to be done differently.

However, the heartening news is that, according to a recent article by Investopedia, it is possible for Americans to retire to Italy with under $200,000 behind them. The trick? To live like a local.

Americans retiring to Italy live like locals

Think about it. What’s attracting you to consider retirement in the boot-shaped country of Europe? It’s the very things that Italians themselves value. Congenial community relationships, olive groves around the corner, fantastic food and wine and proximity to the rest of Europe are all things Italians themselves value. Then add in sunshine, culture and stunning architecture in Italian villages and the reality is that you aren’t looking for anything much different to locals themselves.

If you take the advice from Investopedia then Americans can certainly retire to Italy and live a comfortable and Italian lifestyle.
