Hi there

Generally speaking, the Northern region of Italy is considered to be more costly than the South. However, this will depend on whether you are considering moving to an urban or rural area.

Which city are you considering moving to? Have a look at the Cost of Living in Italy guide for some general information on expats' most common expenses.

Taxes are higher south of Rome because there is another non-governmental taxing authority.
