Housing in Italy varies in size and style from what you are used to and units do not come equipped with what Americans expect to be standard amenities, such as closets, light fixtures and kitchen cabinets. The Furnishings Management Section in Vicenza will assist you with the temporary loaner furnishings and major appliances you may need during your tour. For more information, see Furnishings Management linked in the Important Links section of this page.

For information about the housing allowances that financially support your move, see Referral and Relocation Assistance.

Personal Property Insurance

You need to obtain legal liability and personal property insurance for your possessions and should choose the options and amounts that best fit your needs and lifestyle. Before purchasing your insurance, please consult the MHO for more information about coverage.

Realtor Services

In Italy, Realtors' fees are the equivalent of one month rent plus 20% tax. This fee is not refundable by the Government and therefore the member will have to pay out of pocket.

School Information

For families, we understand that where your children attend school plays a large factor in the decision of where to live.

Please contact the DoDD's school representative at DSN 632-3533 to get more information on school options and school bus routes. If you decide to send your child to an Italian school please contact the Base Interpreter at DSN 632-3545.
