Need info/advice from those living in or recently lived in Italy, please!

Jump to last reply

I'm starting to make preparations for a move to Italy.

I have four indoor-only cats. If I have to, I may be able to find someone to foster the two younger cats. But I'd really like to take them all with me. I plan on living in Italy for 2-3 years.

I need to know a couple of things.

1) Do landlords in Italy generally charge extra for pets, like the US does? If so, what approximately is the "pet deposit"? or is it an additional dollar amount per month?

2) Am I less likely to find a landlord that will let me have four cats? Would two be doable?

3) Do apartment rentals (and I should state that I am leaning toward Rome) work the same way there as US? Like, you sign a 6-month or 1-year lease and pay month-to-month? Is there generally a security deposit? If so, is it like here, and usually one month's rent?

4) Does rent normally include furniture? Water? Electricity/Gas? Garbage pickup?

Thanks! And please chime in with any other information you think will be useful! :)
