Certainly Liguria is one of the top destinations for tourists in Italy, and as such real estate here commands high prices. Prices, subject to slumps in the property market as a whole, are a fairly good, steady one-way bet. But they start high. The most sought after, and arguably the most beautiful area of the region section is the stretch of coast from Genoa eastwards.
Liguria is a densely populated region, with most towns dotted along the thin coastline. So demand for property continues to be high which makes Liguria for a good investment if you are looking for long-term growth. But, if you consider investing here, you should know that it is a particularly seasonal region. During the summer months rents go through the roof, but drop off steeply as this predominantly coastal area tends to close down outside of the spring and summer months.
