Fertility Clinics in Italy


Background Italy is a country of great food, culture and art. The healthcare that Italy provides is of high quality and as a travel destination it is difficult to beat. Whilst historically the regulation and law around fertility treatments has been slow to progress and still today doesn’t permit treatment for single women and same-sex couples, it is still highly desirable. In Italy fertility clinics in Bologna , Milan and Rome are easily accessible from the UK and offer competitive prices.
