Hi Kim,Thanks for following the magazine over the years.  We will try to answer your question.With the name Ciociaria we usually mean an area of Lazio which mostly concides with the province of Frosinone. Searching for properties in the Frosinone area might be easier over the net than using the word Ciociaria.  Among the towns in the area Fiuggi, Fumone, Ferentino, Alatri,Ceccano, Torrice, Veroli.    Hope this helps.Katia

Hi Cannoli Girl,First problem could be too much cannoliwink!  It is always hard to reply to this kind of questions as it depends a lot on your expectations. It is also quite easy to fall into stereotypes and generalisation about places and people.It also depends on the area you choose, Giardini is in a nice location, not far from Catania (with theatres, cinemas, museums, markets, restaurants, shops, etc) and Catania's airport, Etna, Taormina and the Alcantara river. Rochelle is right that it gets busy in the summer though. In any case, I think you are planning the move in a smart way, rent a house first, live here for a while to see if you like it and take advantage of this initial period to improve your language skills and make new friends. We did the same when we moved back to Sicily 10 years ago and we are still here. If you decide to buy a property then you can have a look at the following articles for advice: https://www.italymagazine.com/featured-story/six-things-consider-buying-property-italyhttps://www.italymagazine.com/featured-story/buying-property-italy-part-onehttps://www.italymagazine.com/featured-story/buying-property-italy-part-2https://www.italymagazine.com/news/restoring-property-italy-useful-tips-vocabulary
