Art cities high mountains, lakes, and a beautiful coastline. People mostly live in towns and villages.The transportation system however, is highly developed.

The family unit is very important in Italy. Families are generally with two or three children.
Most families own their own home or apartment. Over one third also own or share a second house in the mountains or by the sea. Spending week end time in these is a favourite family activity. The Italian family is very happy to host English mother tongue, because they always want to improve their English knowledge and make to learn the language to their children as soon as possible. Among Italian children and teenagers it is common to be a member of a sports club, or attending some sport lessons. Most families prefer female applicants and non-smokers. It is excellent if you have some knowledge of Italian, but not necessary.
