That’s right! You read it correctly… Italy’s government-run State Property Agency has come up with a new scheme to attract tourists. They’re offering away 103 castles, towers, inns, farmhouses and medieval monasteries… for free!
The catch: you’ll have to come up with a proposal to turn these abandoned properties into something functional that’ll attract tourists – be it a hotel, restaurant, coffee shop, its just got to be of use.
The properties are spread across eight historic districts in Italy, and they’re all along the country’s incredible coastline from the North all the way down to Sicily.
For a chance to win one, submit a proposal on their website, specifying how you plan to use the property into a hotpost. Special preference is given to millennials (those under 40).
