Native Italians... Places for foreigners?

Ciao a tutti!

As native Italians, what do you think are the best cities for foreigners to settle in? I have read on blogs and articles that Nothern Italian cities are best; But, I am not really sure; I am looking forward to a combination of job opportunities (at least for 3 months while I  am study the language there), cultural insights and friendly people. Thank you all for your time!

Hi, I'm from south Italy, I personally deem that, in order for what you want to do, northen Italy is better; you can go to Milano, Torino, or Roma at least. In Roma you will find friends easly, in Milano you will find more job opportunities in a metropolitan and brilliant city; my opinion is that Torino it will be the perfect union between the first two; it's a city full of opportunities and perfect to find peaple to talk to and became a good italian speaker. Bye ;)

Ciao Alexis, if you want more job opportunities, you should stay on the north of Italy. Milan or Turin in particular. Also for conversation the north is better, because there are less dialet influence instead of south. In the north, again, you have more chance to move faster. So, I suggest North absolutely for your intention. Bye

ciao alexis, i'm italian too and i think that north italy give more chance than south italy. i'm study in lecce in the south one and i can say that because i had a lot of *bad experiences*.

after all the south one is a beautiful place to visit for only 1 week because it's so boring

Well, I think Milan is good for foreigners because it's kind of a multicultural city, that has a lot of opportunities. But it really depends where you find the job, in what field, ...ecc. I suggest you to concetrate on job seeking first, and then on finding information on the city or the area where the job is situated. Best of luck!

Hi. Instead than understanding and finding a work, try finding a work and then understanding. I don't know what you can do, Milan is good for design, but I'd also point to Trentino and Friuli regions. good luck
