The Marche / Abruzzo / Marche region
MARCHES - With its uncrowded landscapes, the central Italian region of Le Marche has a reputation as a place yet to be discovered by tourism. Yet there is so much for visitors to discover here between the Adriatic and the Apennines - historical, artistic, cultural, natural and culinary delights await you. The region as a whole is made up of five provinces, of which Pesaro and Urbino is the northernmost.
The province is named after two towns both well worth a visit - the coastal resort of Pesaro with its beautiful beach and outstanding sights such as the Palazzo Ducale on the Piazza del Popolo, and the small inland town of Urbino to the southwest, a UNESCO world heritage site since 1998 thanks to its unique architecture and eventful history. Bramante and Raffael were born in this beautiful town, where visitors are literally surrounded by Renaissance culture. To the south of Pesaro and Urbino is the province of Ancona. A delight not only for lovers of fine wine, the port and provincial capital of Ancona is the gateway to charming little towns such as Jesi and Staffolo, followed by rolling hills where the most famous grape of Le Marche is grown - Il Verdicchio. Those more inclined to underground adventures would be well advised to take a trip to the Frasassi Grottoes: these karst caves are among Europe's most beautiful and impressive.
The third province in Le Marche is Macerata, also named after its provincial capital, famed mainly for its annual open-air opera festival. Along with Recanati, the birthplace of the famous poet Giacomo Leopardi to the east of Macerata, the medieval town of Tolentino to the west is equally worth discovering. The Giotto frescoes in the Basilica San Nicola are an absolutely captivating sight.
Fermo is the youngest of the five provinces - with its first elections taking place in June 2009! Yet the provincial capital of Fermo, looking down from its hilltop location, boasts impressive architecture and excellently preserved Roman baths from the pre-Christian era. But true water-babies should head for the sea, for example taking a trip to the little coastal town of Civitanova Marche. How about freshly caught fish for dinner? The southernmost province of Le Marche is Ascoli-Piceno. As broad swathes of the entire region have been declared national parks, it comes as no surprise that this province has one of its own: the Parco Naturale dei Monti Sibillini.
At 2476 metres in height, the highest of the Sibylline mountains - Monte Vettore - is particularly impressive. While the mountains are still snow-capped in spring, the huge plateau of Piano Grande to the west radiates its full beauty thanks to an absolute ocean of blossoming flowers. To the east of Monte Vettore is the provincial capital of Ascoli Piceno, captivating almost every visitor with its charm and unique sights.
The Recanati area
Recanati is the birthplace of Giacomo Leopardi, one of the most famous Italian Romantic poets, and Beniamino Gigli, a great tenor of this century. In addition the Civic Museum holds many of Lotto's paintings.
Loreto is the centre of devotion to the blessed Virgin Mary, thanks to its the famous shrine enclosing the Holy House (Santa Casa).
Recanati: The exhilaration of an opera in little more than an hour. The bravura of the voices, already known in some of the ‘temples of opera’ , such as “Alla Scalla”, together with the interaction with the audience create a unique, intensely emotional experience for the spectator. The magic mix of music, art, decorative cornices and atmosphere make Villa InCanto a dream come true for those who come. http://www.villaincanto.eu/
Porto Recanati: Nine kilometers of beaches, shining waters and warm ospitality, everything inserted on a landscape of exception: the Monte Conero.
Sirolo: This lovely medioeval town, linked with the mountain and its traditions, is from the artistic and natural point of view one of the most beautiful resorts of the Riviera: that's why it's known as the Cònero's Jewel.
Conero Golf Club is in the beautiful Conero Nature Park, Sirolo. Almost seventy hectares of Broom, Irish Strawberry Trees, Oaks, Tamarisks and Cherry Trees which line the 18 hole Championship course and the 5-hole Executive course.
Civitanova Marche was built as a small seafaring village, nowadays it is an important footwear industrial centre. The town has a variety of landscapes and colours: a medieval village full of history and art, a wide and equipped beach, a clean sea and many times awarded the prestigious Blue Flag, typical food, fascinating culture and folklore.
Moreover, the tourist can go shopping in major outlets at discounted prices.
