It has been a long and steady downward trend in housing prices in Italy since the 2008 financial crisis. While the market began to stabilise in 2016, the growth of prices has remained lower than the European average, with desirable destinations, such as the Italian Riviera, offering plenty of good investment opportunities to local and international buyers interested in the luxury residential property market.
