Charming Italian village offering free one-week stays to tourists this summer
The travel bug is definitely returning for many of us as the lockdown eases.
Many Britons are anxious to get back to travelling the world and one small Italian village is offering free week-long stays this summer.
San Giovanni in Galdo, a village in southern Italy, experienced depopulation even before the coronavirus pandemic and officials hope this move will entice more tourists and visitors.
The town is about two hours from Rome and Naples and is little-known among tourists although it was named in the New York Times list of Places to Go in 2020.
According to Business Insider, numerous homes have been left lying empty for years and officials say they've already received hundreds of applications from a number of different countries.
