Au Pair in Italy salary
Would you like to know the rules of the Au Pair program in Italy? Then you are in the right place. Keep reading and find out what you can expect! 

Au Pair duties in Italy

The Au Pair will be responsible for the Host Family’s kids well-being. Au Pairs in Italy are in charge of child care and the tasks related to it, like ironing the kids’ clothes, cleaning the kids’ room or preparing some light meals. 
 
The participant should also take part in general household chores, but they should not be in any case the main responsibility of the Au Pair. He/She is not a cleaning lady, but a member of the family! 

Host Family’s duties in Italy

The Host Family should provide the new family member with a cozy room at their place. The Host Family should take care of the full board and provide their Au Pair with at least 3 full meals per day. 
 
The participant has to receive a certain amount of pocket money (260 - 300 Euro per month). The Host Family should pay the it on time.

Working hours

The Au Pair in Italy should work 30 hours per week, while her/his work time should not exceed 5 hours per day. The work time may be flexible, but the participant should have at least one free day a week. 
 
Of course, the work time includes babysitting! 

Salary

The money that a participant receives during her/his stay is rather considered pocket money than salary. 
 
There are no official requirements in Italy concerning this case. Nonetheless, the Au Pair should receive about 260 - 300 Euros on a monthly basis to enjoy her/his time abroad, pay for the language course and spend money on sightseeing in Italy! 

Time off and holidays

The Au Pair should have at least one free day in each week. At least once a month the free day should be a Sunday. 
 
There is no official legislation regarding the participant’s holidays in Italy, but we usually recommend at least 4 free weeks during 12 months of the Au Pair’s stay. 

 

Accommodation

Every participant of the program will receive free lodging and full board. These are the foundations of the program concept
 
An Au Pair can stay at the Host Family’s place and enjoy the accommodation and all the facilities during the free time, holidays and in case of any illness. 

Language course

The Au Pair in Italy should enroll in a language course. The daily schedule should allow him/her to spend some hours studying the language on a daily basis. The Host Family doesn’t have to cover the language course expenses, but it would be a nice gesture!
 
If the applicant needs a student visa to become an Au Pair in Italy, she/he will need to enroll in a right course. Read more about the visa application and make sure you know everything.
