Whether you are moving to Italy because it is your dream destination to live or you are emigrating for work-related reasons, the transition to a new country is potentially stressful. The language, culture, and lifestyle can all cause you problems as you adapt to a new way of life. Here are four tips to help you make a smooth transition.

1. Learn the Language

While it can take some time to become fluent in Italian, you should at least make the effort to learn some basic, commonly used phrases before you arrive in Italy. Everything is so much easier if you understand what people are saying to you and you can ask questions.

2. Research the Area

One difficulty people experience when moving to a new country is a lack of knowledge of the local area. Finding amenities and services, getting around and making the most of the local attractions are all difficult when you do not know somewhere. Ideally, you should visit the area to which you are moving several times before you move so that you can acclimatize yourself with the area and find out where everything is. If this is not possible, research the area online before you leave.

3. Take Professional Advice

Moving is a major life decision and it can be helpful to seek out advice from a professional before taking any final action. It can be helpful to review finances and opportunities to make sure you get the most out of the living situation.

4. Get Out and About

​Another difficulty people have when they move abroad is socializing and making friends. It is important to integrate yourself into the local community to avoid boredom and loneliness. Getting out and about in the local area is essential to help you meet new people and make friends. Try going to local bars, eating in nearby restaurants, getting to know the local shopkeepers and visiting parks and attractions in the area. Each of these venues will open opportunities to mix with people from the area.
