This Beautiful Little Island Looks Like Paradise… Til You Learn What Happened There.


This beautiful little island in Naples, Italy might seem like the perfect little place to retire to, enjoying the relaxed Mediterranean life and nice weather in your later years. Well, that’s if you don’t talk to the locals first, since they believe Gaiola Island has a horrible curse on it, causing its owners to either die prematurely or be ruined financially.

All these stories of a curse haven’t stopped thousands of tourists going to the island every year, mostly to jump off the cliffs into the sea. However, if I was visiting a supposed cursed island, I’d probably not cross a sketchy looking bridge like some of the people in these photos.
