As is the case in the rest of Italy, both public and private healthcare options are easily available and of good quality. There are also several 24-hour pharmacies in and around the city centre.
Italian citizens and residents can apply for an Italian health card. EU citizens can use their European Health Insurance Card (EHIC) to access state healthcare in Spain during a short-term visit. UK citizens can make use of their Global Health Insurance Card (GHIC), which replaced the EHIC for UK citizens post-Brexit.
Although some expats may prefer private options for efficiency or to avoid any language barriers, professionals in both public and private centres are likely to speak English. For private healthcare, it is advised that expats organise health insurance beforehand to cover these costs.
