Phil, the creator of Liveworkabroad.com, asked me to write an article about my experiences working in Bella Italia for an Italian tour operator. Click here to read about what I learned and how I managed working in one of the busiest places in Italy during the tourist season!

I, for one, would LOVE to work in Italy. I’m actually looking to work abroad currently so I will check out the site. By the way, nice article. I’ve discovered teaching abroad as a good option, but there doesn’t seem to be a while lot of other practical or realistic options (at least for me).
Grazie for reading, Shay! I have heard of many people who have chosen teaching English as their gateway to living and working abroad. I too considered the option, but I sort of lucked out with the arrangement that I did end up with! Have you travelled to Italy before?
I have never been to Italy, though it is on the top list of places to travel. I couldn’t imagine living there, that would be amazing. I do see people on House Hunters International getting summer homes. Maybe when I have enough money and time I will consider this option 🙂
Sarah, I REALLY want to read this whole article, as it IS one of the ideas I have for working in Italy, but when I follow the link and click on the article to “read more” it never loads – do you have the article you could share? Thank you!!!
Ciao! Thanks for leaving a comment. I tried the link today and it worked just fine for me… Here it is again though: http://www.liveworkabroad.com/living-in-tuscany-the-ups-and-downs-of-working-in-italy-by-sarah-mastroianni. Thanks for reading!
Yep, it worked today – thanks! I’m not sure my Italian is ready to work for an Italian tour company – any tips on American/Canadian based ones?
Prego! I’m sure there are a ton of American or Canadian tour companies out there that take people on trips or arrange trips to Italy – I just don’t know which ones would have offices there. When I worked in Tuscany we collaborated with a lot of agencies across the pond that used us as their “local supplier”. I don’t know if that helps you at all, but if I hear of anything or think of something I’ll be sure to let you know. Thanks for reading and commenting!
