Teach English in Italy ( Cost of Living )

As you might expect, Italy can be an expensive place to live. Taxes are quite high – you will be liable for income tax, housing tax, social security and various indirect taxes on almost all purchases.

It is more expensive to live in the larger cities than the rural areas in southern Italy but, of course, there are also far more jobs.

On average, if you work 25 hours a week, you can expect about €800 (US$1,181) per month. …  Read More
