Ready To Make Your Royal Debut? How To Get Your Very Own Italian Castle For Free!

Who said you'll never be royals? Fortunately for you, obtaining a free castle doesn't require assembling an army or visiting King's Landing. In an effort to boost tourism, Italy is giving away approximately 103 buildings across the country including castles, ex-convents, lookout towers and more!

What's the catch? All you have to do to win a chance of scoring one of these incredible (and did we mention FREE?) properties is submit a proposal outlining how you'll transform your newly acquired kingdom into a heritage site. Hotels, shops, restaurants, spas, and lavish villas are a few of the recommended examples provided by the Italian government.

Additional properties are expected to make the list over the next few years in case you miss the June 26, 2017 deadline to submit your proposal!
