FAI – Fondo Ambiente Italiano
Your passport to Italy’s architectural and cultural treasures. The mission of FAI – Fondo Ambiente Italiano (the National Trust for Italy) is to restore, conserve and open to the public places of art, nature and culture that symbolise Italy's monumental heritage. Silversea proudly expresses their own Italian heritage with optional Silver Shore excursions that highlight rarely seen, magnificent historical properties. Each is a unique experience made available to guests through Silversea’s relationship with FAI.
