If you have money to spare and are in the market for your own private island, you may wish to consider Poveglia. The 17-acre island in Italy's Venice lagoon will be auctioned off, complete with its abandoned buildings (IMAGE ABOVE, MORE PHOTOS HERE). The high bidder will own a piece of history. In the 18th c., the island was used as a quarantine station for passengers on plague-riddèn ships. In the mid-20th c., the mentally ill were hospitalized there and questionable experiments were performed on them. Buyer beware. Despite the lovely view of St. Mark's Square, the property is billed as one of the most haunted places in the world.
