Experience Italy’s Abruzzo: Your Ticket To La Dolce Vita

The big event news this month is… Italy!

At last, registration is open for our first Live and Invest in Italy Conference… which we’ll host, this Oct. 17–19, in the city of Pescara—on the Adriatic coast of the Abruzzo region.

Over three days in Pescara, our full Italy team will introduce you to your best living options here in Abruzzo and beyond—though, once you spend a little time around Abruzzo, you may find it hard to imagine anything better…

Abruzzo is a place where…

Old ladies in pinafores bring their chairs outside and sit in groups to chat and string onions into plaits…

Young boys play soccer outdoors… not computer games on their living room couches…

Families shop at open-air markets, not hypermarkets—and if they don’t produce their own wine, they buy it from their neighbors’ vineyards…

In many ways, the area harkens back to life in 1950s America. But, while life may move at a slower pace here, it’s anything but dull…

The Abruzzo region has the benefit of both beaches and mountains—meaning there’s a buzz about the place in summer and winter—though nothing like the crowds you’d experience in Rome, Florence, or Venice.

Aside from skiing and water sports, on your doorstep, too, are national parks (with free entry)… healing natural springs… hill villages with medieval piazzas and Romanesque churches frozen in time…

Abruzzo has been called the “greenest spot in Europe”… yet most of Italy’s visitors never set foot here.

CNN Travel recently highlighted the overlooked charms of the region:

“With incoming travel numbers on the rise in the country, visitors are increasingly searching for lesser known and undiscovered regional destinations—and Abruzzo has it all.

“This includes lakes, the Adriatic coastline, national parks, imposing mountain ranges, UNESCO heritage sites, some of the most beautiful medieval towns in the country, and an eclectic and diverse cuisine that changes from the beach to the mountains.

“With no crowds, easy access from Rome and its own airport in Pescara (servicing some major Italian, UK and European cities), Abruzzo has something for everyone, from the food and wine traveler (and don’t expect to pay what you would in the big cities) to the adventure and sports traveler.”

Best of all, for those seeking great value, are the prices here. Abruzzo has everything you’d expect from la dolce vita… without wiping out your life savings…

And, right now, not only can you buy cheap in Abruzzo… but you can also buy special…

How about a pair of 200-year-old apartments (one to live in, one for rental income, perhaps), in need of some restoration, for US$77,499?…

Or a 100-year-old watermill, on an acre, surrounded by stunning countryside—just 10 minutes from the nearest town—for US$160,939?…

While you explore your buying options, you can rent in the country from as little as US$400 a month…

This Oct. 17–19 is your chance to explore this extraordinary part of Old Europe for yourself, in the company of the experts who can help you prepare for a longer-term stay.

From the Alps to the Mediterranean coast, from country villages to mountain hideaways, we’ll introduce you to the real Italy—the good, the bad, the ugly, and the workarounds. No place is perfect… even in Italy (though, I’d argue, Abruzzo does come close).

If you’d like to be among our guests in October, I urge you to book early. When you do, you’ll save US$500 on your seat with our Early Bird Discount.
