The Marche sum up the whole of Italy in themselves. That's why a recent campaign said "The Marche: Italy in one region". Sea, mountains, history,art, local traditions, spirituality, nature, typical food and wine: in the Marche you can find all the best features of Italian culture and way of life. "The Marche is a distillation of Italy"
The Marche offers 180 kilometres of coastline, 26 seaside resorts facing the Adriatic Sea defined by beautiful beaches, picturesque bays, 9 marinas and 16 Blue Flag beaches, that certify the water quality and further services.
500 squares, more than 1,000 important monuments, approximately one hundred cities of art, 37 fortresses, 106 castles, 15 strongholds.
In the Marche there are 12 protected areas: 2 national parks, 4 regional parks, 6 nature reserves, 15 state forests.
The food in the Marche region equally shares from the bounty of the sea as well as from the countryside ; the region can boast an incredible variety of dishes, strictly based on tradition and local produce. The use of fresh, top quality materials assembled with the minimum of fuss marks Marche's food. As with any rural diet, much use is made of food gathered from the wild; mushrooms, game, nuts and field herb. Waste, too, is frowned upon, and many of the now most fashionable dishes were first developed to use up such things as stale bread or parts of the pig. Some types of food is guaranteed through Quality Assurance and Product Certification, such as DOP ( Protected Designation of Origin) and IGP ( Protected Geographical Indication).

- Urbino is considered the Ideal City because it combines the culture of Humanism and the Renaissance. The “city in the form of a building” became the privileged place of the elegant and refined society of the 16th century, described in the wonderful pages of “Il Cortegiano” by Baldassarre Castiglione
- Pesaro, with nearly one hundred thousand inhabitants, is the second largest city population in the region after the capital city, Ancona: with its old town that still shows the splendor of the seigneury of the Della Robere family and its precious museums, the city was the birthplace of Gioachino Rossini. The annual Rossini opera Festival is devoted to him and his work is protected by the Rossini Foundation. The city hosts the International Festival of the New Cinema
-Besides the capital cities of the province, The Marche boasts a number of art cities spread all over the region. In Gradara, the fortress and the ancient village are the best preserved Medieval structures in Italy.
The city walls which protect the fortress, make it one of the most impressive.
The castle was home to Lucrezia Borgia and Francesca di Rimini, who was the protagonist, together with Paolo, of one of the most famous love stories narrated by Dante in his Divine Comedy.
Fano, governed by the Malatesta family and deeply afflicted in Roman times, known for its Arch of Augustus, is now home to the Centro Studi Vitruviani; Urbania and the upper valley of the Metauro river feature many ducal monuments and their majolica.
The environmental setting around the nearby cities of S. Angelo in Vado and Mercatello sul Metauro si very evocative
