Not so long ago, the public shook the news that the authorities of the Italian town of Sambuca, located on the southern island of Sicily, in order to restore the commune decided to sell empty houses for € 1. The proposed option was used by hundreds of enterprising people from all over the world and as a result, the buildings dispersed like hot cakes. Seeing the excitement of this proposal, the authorities of the Italian town of Mussomeli, also located in southern Sicily, also decided to put the houses up for sale at the price of a cup of coffee. However, before you reach for the smartphone to book a ticket for the next flight to Italy, explore other options where you can very profitably buy property.
The mayor of the Italian town decided to follow the example of successful realization of houses in Sambuka in the south of Sicily, and announced that it was ready to provide 100 buildings (and in the near future, about 400 more objects) to everyone for € 1, the British newspaper The Sun reported. At the same time, he stressed that he would like to give priority to Russian buyers, because, like no one else, they will be able to appreciate the beauty of the city and invest their soul in the arrangement of their homes. By the way, for all those who are already considering all sorts of relocation options, it is worth knowing that in addition to the symbolic amount, they will also have to fulfill a number of conditions. For example, the buyer will have to make an insurance deposit in the amount of more than € 7,000, pay a fee of € 3.6 – € 5.8 thousand and restore the purchased property during the year. Experts even calculated the estimated repair costs – € 313 per sq. M. m. But imagine what pride you can then tell your friends about your, albeit small, contribution to the cultural and historical heritage of Sicily.
This region is not for nothing called the Sicilian Tuscany – the beauty of nature is just fascinating, and those who decide to buy property in this municipality will not be left disappointed. The cost of houses here varies from € 4-10 thousand and require minimal investment in interior renovation. In addition, for the acquisition of these properties are ready to provide a residence permit to those buyers who really need it, indicated on the portal of foreign real estate Prian.ru. Everything would be fine, but many future owners are frightened by the fact that a large refugee camp is located nearby, where about 1,200 people live. True, the Sicilian authorities have promised to resolve this issue as soon as possible. Continue reading
In order to spend an unforgettable holiday in any country of the world, it is not necessary to contact the tour operator or the Agency – any independent travel will be many times more interesting than “on the ticket”. Passion.ru talked to seasoned travelers and found the main principles, following which you will be able to experience and benefit from his trip.
Why and where are you going?
This is perhaps the main point, having decided on which you will be able to plan everything else. Answer the question what attracts you: cities and museums, nature reserves and parks, shopping and entertainment, local delicacies and culinary traditions. Or do you even dream of a “vegetable” holiday and plan to spend the next two weeks on some exotic beach, which is known only to the locals? All this will help you to determine the key points and get the most impressions from the trip.
Check your calendar
One of the main points, which many tourists forget, but in vain. For example, you decide to go to a hot country and relax on the beach, but at this time there is still a rainy season, so it is likely to spend most of the holiday in the hotel, museums or bars. In addition, it may be that the sea has not yet warmed up, and the reserves are closed, and there are not many people in the city, so there is nothing much to do. Therefore, learn in advance about the climate of the country, about the schedule of institutions and the upcoming national holidays (so that it does not happen that you came to rest and get to some noisy celebration, like a carnival).
Gather information about the country and make an action plan
Even if you have chosen a destination that you have visited before, it will not be superfluous to find out what has changed in the country since your last stay, what laws have been introduced for tourists (sometimes this happens, what was allowed before, now was banned), what new places have opened and so on-so on. After all, perhaps before you were passing and did not have time to learn everything properly. Therefore, to this time the rest did not get crumpled, it is better to know everything in advance and prepare. And if you have chosen the country where you have never been, then you should start by studying (or even buying) a guide and determining the main places that you would definitely like to visit.
