Many people are looking at ways to live la dolce vita by buying a home in Italy. A majority of them focus on Tuscany or Umbria but there are many other gorgeous regions to consider.

Many people will take a DIY approach to finding their dream villa, but there is a great benefit to working with an attorney on some of the complicated matters of such a transaction.

All in all, the dream to live in such a beautiful country is something many of us think about and why not? Who wouldn’t love to live la dolce vita? A country that offers over 100,000 square miles of beauty, delicious pasta, wine, and highly diverse climates would make a lovely home, don’t you think?
