Move to Italy

« on: August 02 2004 13:08:00 »

I want to move to Italy to begin a new life. I am 32, my son is 14 and obsessed with surfing. Tuscany is my first choice, but I would like to move to an area that has or is located close to a great surf spot. We live in S. CA and he is used to surfing in Malibu. Any suggestions? Where should I start searching for our new home?

Tuscany is the best choice . The best spots are in the  Viareggio and  Forte dei Marmi area . There's a big surf community too .

Good luck !

I'm Enrico from Rome, 20.
Look for S.Marinella near Rome... great sites, great surfers community (but there are a little localists)... the best choise to make a "surfers life" here in Italy.
Anzio is nice too but with few spot.
If u want to know something more u can contact me by e-mail

I Think moving to Italy would be great for you and your kid. Italy is a great and romantic place, so maybe you could find a husband for you kid if you dont already have one.

varazze is one of the best spot in Italy, but it's not near rome, as somone writed to you. Varazze is in Liguria region, more or less 550 km north of rome. Tuscany is also a good region for surfing, notably in Livorno and Viareggio areas. If you want to live in a big city, then you could establish in Rome: from there you can surf at Banzai, 50 km north, 1/2 hour by car. It's also one of the best spot in Italy.

You have to consider that Italy has not ocean coast, the mediterranean is a close sea and swells and waves are not like the ones in California. The best place for surf in Italy, and probably in the entire mediterranean, is the west coast of Sardegna Island, but there aren't big cities. See you...
