This year`s National Castles Days take place on May 19-20th with special openings, events and guided tours across Italy. More than 30 of Italy's finest fortresses, manors and palaces are inviting visitors to take a free tour this weekend as part of an annual celebration of Italian castles.

Almost every region has at least one castle taking part, whether it's a walled medieval fortress in Liguria, a reinforced Norman church in Sicily, or a 20th-century military fort in Veneto. Organized by the Italian Institute of Castles with the backing of Italy's Ministry of Culture and Tourism, the event involves different sites each year in an effort to encourage visitors to explore some of Italy's lesser-known treasures.
