Italy Is Giving Away Castles For Free

The¬†country’s State Property Agency just announced that it will be giving away over 100 historic buildings! The buildings include some, castles, farmhouses, towers, and monasteries.

They’re not giving away these buildings to just anyone though!¬†You have to be willing to commit to turn these properties into tourist destinations like restaurants, hotels, or even spas.

These buildings are obviously quite old so you can imagine the amount of renovations they would need.

There is a total of 101 buildings that will be given away in hopes that it will encourage tourists to visit places in Italy other then the large cities.

According to Thrillist, the State Property Agency is looking for people under 40 who have a clear plan and vision on how to restore the buildings.

In case you’ve ever wanted to own a restaurant or hotel in Italy, the application deadline to own one of these properties is June 26!
