Hello! I’m Saraya. I’m 54 and married to Simon, who turns 50 at the end of the year. We live in the hills above Lucca in Toscana. We are actually in the town of S. Colombano, less than a 20 min drive from the city center of Lucca. It’s a beautiful area where all the aristocrats chose to build their magnificent villas.
It’s south-facing with all-day sun and lovely views. From our door, we can access hundreds of trails for hiking and biking. We prefer open space, countryside, and tranquillity to the hustle and bustle of a city. While you could walk or bike to the market, I’m not a fan of lugging bags of groceries the distance, so you need a car for most activities. People are friendly. Olive groves and vineyards surround us, and there are beautiful trails with waterfalls and rivers in the woods here.
I enjoy the tranquility while having access to the city of Lucca, the sea in 30 min, and Florence, which is just over an hour’s drive. Both our kids are in the states, one attending college and the other one graduated and is working. The winters are mild but rainy.
There are usually breaks in the rain with the sun allowing us time to walk/exercise. Summers are hot. I recommend a pool or AC. I have had friends with young children who complained of no parks, but I see them everywhere. There is an energetic expat community with several weekly social mixers where local Italians and expats share aperitivo and conversation.
Some are in English, while others exchange in both Italian and English. Some say the people of Lucca are exclusive, but that has not been my experience. Three of my closest friends are Lucchesi, and I have only been here for less than a year at this writing.

In this article, we will talk about some of things you should know before moving to Italy
● The cost of living – it is still a timely consideration when moving abroad due to deficits in employment opportunities or language skills. Be sure that you take this into account before making any rash decisions. Working abroad might not be enough for certain cultures because they would prefer having
