BUT, there is a catch!

The Italian government expects anyone who accepts a free castle to commit to updating and restoring it. So it can be used as a tourist destination — whether that be a hotel, spa, restaurant, destination wedding location, or something else entirely.

You will only need to submit a proposal on your plans for the castle.

If Italy approves your plan, you will gain all the rights of the property for nine years. It will also have the option to renew the contact for another nine.

“The project will promote and support the development of the slow tourism sector,” Roberto Reggi from the State Property Agency told The Local. “The goal is for private and public buildings which are no longer used to be transformed into facilities for pilgrims, hikers, tourists, and cyclists.”
