Stop dreaming and get to Italy: There's world-class wine, even better mozzarella, and the mayor of this tiny Italian town will pay you to move there.
Mayor Nicola Gatta wants to restore Candela, a small medieval town in southern Italy, to its former bustling glory, when "travelers called it 'Nap'licchie' (Little Naples), for it streets full of wayfarers, tourists, merchants and screaming vendors," as he described it to CNN. In the 1990s, over 8,000 people called Candela home, but today its winding streets host just 2,700 residents.
Candela's town hall isn't offering a fortune, but the sum will definitely ease your relocation. You'll be supplied with 800 euros ($947) if you relocate by yourself; 1,200 euros ($1,420) for a couple; families of three get 1,500 to 1,800 euros ($1775 to $2,130); and families of four to five will receive over 2,000 euros ($2,371). That should at least be enough to cover your obligatory scooter.
