Moving to Italy
Famed for its' fashion, art, Vespas, cars, hand gestures, football, explorers and its' now global cuisine, Italy is a country that has contributed so much in every manner of life. This country has given us: pizza, pasta, Prada, Gucci, Versace, Michelangelo, Leonardo Da Vinci, Ferrari, Lamborghini, Maserati, Marco Polo, Christopher Columbus and ice cream - to name but a few. Italy is not just a producer of magnificence but is a place that redefines beauty, and it doesn’t take much persuading to move to this utopian landscape and settle there permanently (or at least for a few years).

So, now that you know a bit more about this incredible country, let’s explain a bit about how the healthcare system works here.

    Don’t be surprised if you see a building without a 17th floor. In Roman numerals 17 (XVII) can be rearranged to XIVI, which means “I have lived” - a symbol often associated with death.

    Who's afraid of the big bad volcano?
    All three of the active volcanoes that are located in Europe are located in Italy: Etna, Stromboli, and Vesuvius. But don't worry, no catastrophic eruptions have occurred for a long time and these volcanoes are all monitored very closely by the Italian government.

    Fancy a hike?
    In central Italy lies a town called Caldari di Ortona, in which there is a wine fountain that is completely free and runs 24/7. It is supposed to be a reward for those on the Camino di San Tommaso pilgrimage, but anyone is allowed to drink from it.
