This Italian region will pay you £26,000 to move there

Calabria, a region in southern Italy, will pay you up to £26,000 to move there! But there's a catch...

In order to move to this gorgeous area, and get paid for doing it, you need to either start a new business that will benefit locals, or take up a job in one of several industries that need more staff. This includes working in restaurants, bed and breakfasts, shops or hotels - not a bad gig considering you'll be getting paid already.

When you move, you might get the money as a lump sum, or in monthly payments - it's up to you. But if you choose the lump sum, don't spend it all at once on Aperol Spritz and fancy food.

The other requirements are that people who make the move be under the age of 40, and that they are ready to move to Calabria within 90 days of having an application accepted. Do you fancy it? Make sure you've got your translator ready, you can find out more here.
