America is a huge country that is also beautiful. If you have money you can live in some of the most luxurious homes ever built on this planet. Yet for some unknown reason, many celebs prefer to live in Europe, especially Italy. In fact, many celebs routinely spend 2-6 months of the year in Europe and only come to the US when making a movie.
Then there are some celebs who have actually bought homes in Italy and only come to the US to visit their family and friends. This is not a new trend by any means but there is not much that is not available in the USA, especially if you have money. In any case, here are some celebs who reside in Italy all year round.
George Clooney moved to Italy a few years ago and bought a glamorous 30-room villa overlooking the scenic Lake Como. The view is simply majestic and only the elite rich reside here.
Madonna has many homes in Europe and even though she has recently moved to Portugal, she also owns a lavish home in Piazza dell Erbe in Verona. In fact, just outside her home is a statue called Madonna Verona. The cost for her home was over $10 million. The tragic thing is that she is only there for a few weeks in the entire year.
You may think that the people who look after her property must have a good life, but Madonna does not have any charity-she makes sure that all the rooms are shut and everyone buys their own food. And no one is allowed to enter the pool.
Leonardo DiCaprio is filthy rich and owns a number of luxury homes all over the globe. However, he also owns an apartment overlooking Verona Arena. When you look out of the window, you can see all the monuments that Italy is most famous for.
