Ok, I've lived in America my whole life, and I'm sick and tired of it, so I'm gonna go to college in Italy and start my life there. I am going there next week for a little while, and are there any areas where the locals hang out I should check out? And what are good places that are nice with cheap rents? Also, how else can I blend in as a local more than a tourist?

Thanks,
Esme

One of the most beautiful city.
Places to go?
It's a funny question.
Like everywhere in Europe, you will have a lot of things to do and to see.
Firenze is the History (with a lot of coffee shops)
The right question is:
How much money I have to spend?
In Europe everything is really expensive.
Many years ago I was in Milano for studies and the rates to rent a room or a bed.... forget it!
Anyway, you will be close to an expensive paradise.

I know you don't want to be a tourist, but you have to be one for at least one day and climb to the top of the Duomo belltower.

Maybe you already have.

I could have spent an entire day up there. And the night. And part of the next day. It's that cool!

Oh, and you may think you're sick and tired of America, but trust me, you'll miss the free refills on pop!

1. Learn Italian

2. Learn Italian customs and culture (check out Culture Shock: Italy)

3. Use the Italian you've learned

4. Open yourself to a new lifestyle.

5. Be flexible
