LAKE COMO VISIT 

My husband and I are celebrating our 30th  marriage anniversary in Lake Como in October. We would like to stay in a beautiful apartment that is near lake walks/hiking, cycling,  best restaurants  and lots of  town life.

SPESE CONDOMINIALE - Riscaldamento / Heating

I was hoping to get some advice on the spese condominiale for the apartment we're renting in Bergamo.

Hi! I am a British citizen, Italian resident. My passport is in my married name but all my Italian documents (C.I., Cod. fiscale, patente etc.) are in my maiden name. This has never caused any problems until now.
