Property Opportunities in the Italian Lakes
By Amiento Grend of Few Italy

The Italian lakes have been popular with travellers, ever since they were considered an essential stop on the Grand Tour of Europe made by young Aristocrats. The area shows a strong influence from Rome, and finally became part of Italy under Unification in 1859, it had formerly been part of the Austro Hungarian Empire.

There are strong transport link with France , Switzerland and Austria and have close proximity to the Italian ski resorts of Bormio and Livigno to the North.

Being situated in the foothills of the Alps to the North winters can be cold, but many Italian come to the Lakes in the summer to escape the stifling heat of the south.

The area is ideal for property investing as it is an all year round resort, sunny in the summer, close proximity to the Alps in the winter, plus within easy driving of Milan and the world famous Opera at Verona. The number of flights to this area, from all over Europe are increasing all the time, which should lead to greater numbers of tourists to the area.
