JUST LANDED

Rather than househunting from afar, it is undoubtedly easier to find a home once you have arrived in town. If, however, you would like to get started before you arrive, you’ll need to contact a resettlement agency such as Re/Max or ask a local friend to do the legwork for you. If you are interested in buying or selling a house, see Chapter 10: Long Term.

For temporary housing while you are looking, consider a room in a hotel, residence or pensione (no-frills hotel). A list of options in English is available on the Bologna Turismo website: www.bolognaturismo.info. Residences, which have the advantage of a kitchen and living room, often have minimum and maximum periods of stay. Check the yellow pages under RESIDENCES ED APPARTAMENTI AMMOBILIATI or visit the site of the association Residence Da Ercole, which rents out a variety of apartments for short stays.
