You’re lying to yourself if you say you’ve never dreamt of quitting your job, packing up your belongings and running away to Italy to live out your days with copious amounts of wine, pizza, and pasta.

Did I mention that there’s loads of wine, pizza, and pasta?

The country is full of breathtaking views and architecture.

So it comes as no surprise that it is one of the most visited countries in Europe, with over 63 million keen travelers visiting in 2018 alone.

So, why haven’t we all moved there yet?!

It’s a lot easier said than done.

So, if you ever were to move there, you’d need a pretty high number in your bank account to support you along your way.

It’s sad, it’s depressing, but it’s the truth.  

It’s January, and most of us are completely broke.

And this means that we can only dream of moving to Italy and buying a house out there… Unless those houses happen to be going for a dollar.

Because there’s a town in Italy that is actually selling off homes for as little as a dollar… Literally.

Yes, believe it or not, but there’s a little more to Italy than Venice and Rome, and it’s a hell of a lot cheaper.

Because this quaint Italian town, which is situated in the southern Campania region, is selling off ninety of its houses for as little as €1 – That’s $1.11, for us.

A beautiful city with such ridiculous house prices… What’s the catch?

There isn’t a catch… Well, there kind of isn’t.

You get everything that is stated on the tin – A full house, in the beautiful town of Bisaccia, all for a single dollar.

As beautiful as some of these historic homes are, it needs to be taken into consideration that they are in dire need of some TLC.

And the town’s deputy mayor, Francesco Tartaglia, has revealed that he hopes to regrow the community, which has been gradually dying out due to emigration and a series of severe earthquakes over the last few decades.

And will ultimately bring the small town back to life. Speaking to CNN Travel, he explained, “We face a very particular situation here. The abandoned [area] spreads throughout the most ancient part of the village. Forsaken houses are clustered together, one next to the other along the same roads. Some even share a common entrance.”

In an attempt to have a real impact upon the town. “That’s why we welcome families, groups of friends, relatives, people who know each other or investors to join forces. We encourage them to buy more than just one house to actually have an impact and breathe new life.” I don’t know, $2 might be a bit of a stretch…

And that there won’t be any issues with the previous homeowners or third party property companies. Music to our ears!

He couldn’t speak more warmly of it.
“Our folklore and traditions are the product of a picturesque combination of regions, we celebrate Carnival with local masks and have a variety of fairs and foods that embrace all regional traits. It’s like getting the best of three regions in one single place.”
“Newcomers here are pampered and taken care of. We want this place to shine again.” But does Italy still not tickle your fancy? Keep scrolling to read about the remote island off the coast of Ireland that is looking fr 2 friends to live there… For free.
