What is the best city to live in Italy? Well, we asked you ... through a survey that compared different parameters: Services / Environment / Health, Population, Public Order, Leisure and Leisure, Standard of Living, Business and Work. We sent a survey to a sample of 10.000 users of the , inviting them to express their preferences, assigning a vote out of tenths for each of the 6 thematic areas.

By creating an average of the results, a top 10 of the most livable cities in the Bel Paese emerged, within which sadly there is no city in southern Italy... Let's find out which, in your opinion, are the best cities to live in!



10 - Rome, Lazio

Surprisingly: the eternal city. Excellent result considering the thousand defects that characterize Rome. First of all, traffic and problems with public transport, but also smog, strikes, lack of parking, potholes and noise and environmental pollution. Well, let's face it, being present in the top 10 is already half a miracle. Rome is saved because it is a great metropolis, all in all there are no shortage of job opportunities and in terms of leisure and entertainment it is second to none.

  • Free Time and Leisure: 10/10
  • Perceived standard of living: 6/10
  • TOTAL: 43

9 - Florence, Tuscany

La city ​​of art par excellence it is only tenth in this ranking, a very respectable position. The Cradle of the Renaissance is a city that the world envies us for its beauty, uniqueness and landscape profile. It is undoubtedly a lively, current and sparkling city but this is not enough to be able to rise more in this ranking. Managing such a large influx of tourists practically every day of the year and from all over the world is not easy and preserving the incredible and priceless artistic heritage is difficult and expensive, so this well deserved th place is by no means a defeat. From here on you can only get better!

  • Business and Work: 7/10
  • Public policy: 7/10

  • TOTAL: 44 points

8 - Reggio Emilia, Emilia Romagna

It leads with its head held high the numerous cities of the region present in the ranking (some of which are outside the top ten, but still worthy of note: Ravenna, Rimini, Modena, Piacenza and Ferrara).
In any case, not bad for a city that is certainly not a metropolis, but a pretty town with a nice historic center and excellent services.

  • Services and Environment: 7,5/10
  • Business and Work: 8,5/10

  • Perceived standard of living: 7,5/10
  • TOTAL: 45

7 - Brescia, Lombardy

Excellent location for the Lombard city. A place where you live well, with excellent services but also with some problems of delinquency. However, life goes on pleasantly, there is no shortage of entertainment and leisure activities and the city also has some Unesco Heritage areas. In 2017 Brescia and its province were the European Region of Gastronomy: this also helped them move up the rankings.

  • TOTAL: 45,5

6 - Trento, Trentino Alto Adige

Tell the truth: you expected to find it much higher in the ranking. Instead the beautiful Trento is only 6th. It is undoubtedly a city that has a lot to offer. Perfect for those who love the mountains and winter sports, its university is considered the second best in the state for attractiveness to off-site students. Moreover Trento is one city ​​rich in art and traditions.
Undoubtedly there is no shortage of services, but obviously it needs to improve in other respects. However, arriving 6th is a great satisfaction.

  • Economic standard of living: 8/10
  • Services and Environment: 9/10

5 - Parma, Emilia Romagna

Another city of Emilia Romagna in the ranking. Pretty Parma is notable not only for its famous ham. Parma is a quiet city, where you live well even if it is not very small. Traffic is limited, the city is very clean and full of parks and green areas. It is a city on a human scale and with a good security rate.

4 - Mantua, Lombardy

We are approaching the podium with Mantua, Italian capital of culture 2016 which has invested three hundred and sixty degrees. And it shows! She almost managed to get on the podium, a sign that her efforts have been rewarded.
Its beautiful historic center, the excellent services offered, its cultural effervescence create a good quality of life and a city on a human scale.

3 - Turin, Piedmont

We get on the podium and in third place we find Turin. Esoteric and mysterious city, but definitely efficient in services. Culturally dynamic, its beauty is in the details. It is home to the renowned Polytechnic, but it can also offer a lot of entertainment. There are numerous historic bars and chocolate shops where you can indulge in very pleasant moments of sweetness.
In Turin you live very well, despite the high rates of air pollution that famously characterize it.

  • Free Time and Leisure: 9/10
  • Perceived standard of living: 9,5/10
  • TOTAL 52

2 - Milan, Lombardy

Under the heading "Tenore di Vita" the Milanese capital wins over all. Thanks to Expo Milano it managed to rise compared to the rankings of a few years ago. Excellent results for a perpetually busy city. As everyone knows (and it's not just a stereotype) life here goes on hectic, often too much, but Milan really offers a lot: services, entertainment of all kinds, luxurious shops within everyone's reach, concerts, exhibitions, events, art, libraries, parks, culture.
It becomes even more "business & fashion" during the Fashion Week, which with all its events brings great winds of news but also excellent sales. A decidedly rich city, where it is easy to get used to living but which requires knowing how to adapt to its rhythms. An intercultural financial center rich in art which is also an excellent city and which can truly offer you everything, except the sea (as the Milanese themselves often underline).

  • Economic standard of living: 10/10
  • Services and Environment: 9/10
  • Business and Work: 10/10
  • Public policy: 9/10
  • Free Time and Leisure: 10/10
  • Perceived standard of living: 10/10
  • TOTAL: 58

1 - Bologna, Emilia Romagna

It is the city where you live best! Bologna has also been called the most hi-tech city. The Emilian capital stood out for its management capacity, for the usability of its services and for its digital infrastructures.
In Bologna, it seems, you live really well. It is also the university city par excellence and it is no coincidence that first in the ranking concerning the best Italian university cities.
Two beautiful firsts for "La Dotta". A lively city rich in culture, it offers entertainment for all tastes. Its center is lively, sparkling, stimulating and full of activity. What to say? Good job! We just have to hope that Bologna continues on this path.
