E81 Retire in Florence, Italy
Show Notes

Sally Carrocino started traveling later in life, but she made up for it. She traveled extensively in Europe and even married in Italy. When her husband passed away, she was devastated but it did not stop her from pursuing her retirement dreams. California’s high cost of living motivated her to look at other states, but none seemed to meet most of her needs. Then she had an epiphany. While she couldn’t figure out where to move in the U.S., she knew precisely the neighborhood in Florence, Italy. Shortly thereafter  Sally rid most of her material possessions, and moved with her dog Zoe to Florence and she has not looked back. Find out more about Sally’s life in Florence on Episode 81 of Retire There with Gil & Gene.
