Italy is one of the top tourist destinations in Europe and it’s no surprise: this boot-shaped peninsula is surrounded by five different seas and just as many perfect coastlines. The attraction of apartments in Italy doesn’t stop there, there are famous ski resorts in the Alps, olive groves and world-renowned cuisine at every street corner.
Flats in Italy are more expensive in the North than the South where it is far more rural and there is far less demand for real estate. The price of a one-bedroom apartment in Calabria, the toe of Italy, would be €70,000–100,000 while the same in Liguria, near Monaco, would cost three times that. The most expensive apartments for sale in Italy are found in Rome, Venice, Florence and Milan. Here in these Roman cities of culture and heritage one square metre sells for €10,000.
