Is it true Italy has really cheap cost of living? Would it be better to check out northern or southern Italy for that?

    >entire chicken for $3
    Is...that supposed to be an impressive number? It's not that much cheaper compared to the US, you can get a whole roasted chicken where i live for a little under $5

        Chicken at that price is probably not Italian chicken. Possibly imported from some Eastern shithole. It’s as shit as the bad quality one you can find in the US.

          No.
          One of the few good things about the EU is that they enforce minimum standards on food on a level far higher than the FDA ever will.

            There is a higher chance the chicken is far smaller than the shit you can get in the US. I remember showing my friends when visiting that chicken was 1.98/lb for prepped chicken breasts. They could not process this price as they always thought it was cheaper to eat out constantly in the US

                For city prices it's fine, sure if I were in texas or something could probably find it for <1/lb but inflation a b***h

        Texas, and no I don't think so. It's just a roasted chicken with seasoning on it. Tastes really good too. Prices might be different in other states though. Also, who the frick buys individual bottles of water? You buy that shit in bulk where each bottle costs like 10 cents each.

    It's because there's no jobs so they have to price shit lower so people can actually live. Same thing was true for Georgia before Russians starting flooding in and fricked their prices. I really hope the remaining wiseguys can make sure these American morons don't do the same.

      I'm in the south and this is true. There is no opportunity here and everything is inefficient. I left to enjoy life in other countries but visit here sometimes and reminded how dull it is

      Lol I lived in Georgia then, strange days. The economy was collapsing and so just as you said prices fell as demand fell.
      Then foreigners came in like hawks to outbid and prostitute the locals, which pushed up prices and made life for locals unlivable.
      The rents in tsibilis are out of control, grocery prices must have doubled. It wasn't even the war it was the imbalance of purchase power.

      Italian here
      So the c**t is basically divided and there's a massive disparity between north and south
      Nord is more like your average european country, so expect high prices but decent standard of living. Problem is that salaries are lows so if you don't land a high paying job most of your paychecks will get burnt on everyday expenses. Regions live veneto, emilia romagna and lombardy basically carry the country so that's where the jobs and working things are. Milan is expensive as hell even for other european cities standard
      The south is slowly disappearing due to corruption, low birth rates and general lack of will to change things for the people there. Prices are lower but standard of living are third world tier Infrastructures are falling apart and everything from schools to hospistals are very lacking. There's little work and even less well paid. As someone from Sicily who moved up at young age and goes back from time to time, I say things will never change for the better there

      I was thinking seriously about Italy, maybe renting a place an hour out of a major city, putting it up on airbnb, sleeping in my office in the city the other half of the time

    The choice in Italy is
    -north: high cost of living, good public infrastructure
    -south: low cost of living, nothing works
    -center: depends where you go but most places are kind of sleepy with not much to do
    -Rome: kind of cheap but total chaos
    -Milan: expensive and pretentious

        What's Sardinia like? Should I try to go there in the summer? I've already been to the major tourist cities in Italy and to Sicily

          Unless you work fully remote and can relocate or you are a freelancer who has its entire income from online sources, don't do like this mutt in the article and move to isolated shithole towns in Italy.

          It's fun for a month and then you realize the town is dead, there is no expats, there are little to no tourists, the economy is dead and there is absolutely frick all to do as every business is closing slowly and surely with people relocating to bigger towns.

          The smart foreigners moved to medium sized towns like Padova, Treviso, Bergamo, etc where there is an actual economy, good entertainment, and a solid access to the bigger cities.

          The prices are reasonable and not crazy like in Milan or Rome for example, housing isn't crazy because its mostly towns where locals go to and the expat population isn't as high as in the bigger cities.

          Food is still affordable in those towns. If you want dirt cheap food move to eastern europe where $10 USD is enough to eat like a king for 2-3 days.

          I would avoid the south of Italy as it's lackluster in development and infrastructure and not necessarily friendly to outsiders. The northern medium cities are much better.

          It's actually very nice, but it gets boring quick and there isn't much going on. The expats that live there are mostly retired and most of them live there 3-6 months per year. If you want the island life, Malta or Cyprus are much better (And they come with their own inconvenients too so expats tend to love those places or hate them)

          Rome is not cheap lol.
          Also there are some decent places in the South like Cagliari.

          Rome isn't cheap only for the french/uk/german/american morons wanting to live downtown and only downtown, close to every tourist attraction. Roman suburbs surrounding Rome like Trieste or Pigneto are relatively cheap

          The choice in Italy is
          -north: high cost of living, good public infrastructure
          -south: low cost of living, nothing works
          -center: depends where you go but most places are kind of sleepy with not much to do
          -Rome: kind of cheap but total chaos
          -Milan: expensive and pretentious

          Milan is a nightmare globohomosexual showpiece city, zero soul, full of refugees and crackheads and extremely expensive because both finance and fashion icons happen to be located in the same city.

    Based article despite its photos - I lived in an expensive, tourist-laden city in northern Italy and spent $3 a day on food, eating nothing but baked chicken, pasta and tomato sauce, and it was absolutely delicious every single time due to how good agriculture there is.

    Living costs are entirely relative to wages, inflation, asset depreciation.
    If a country offers you a visa for sinking in money, it usually means that money is a dead loss. Nobody will invest, nobody will move there, their economy is a foot under water and sinking fast.

    We're taking about towns with no doctor, no post office, no police, thousands of wealthy retirees who have driven all the working age people out. I'm a service industry manager and get offered at least one package a month, it's always the same
    >invest in property that's falling in value
    >lock in contact
    >visa comes with penalties attatched
    >local demand isn't sustainable so there are no genuine business opportunities.
