The Marche/Abruzzo region

Even today Marche remains a largely undiscovered gem in the heart of Italy, sandwiched between the stunning Apennine mountains on its western fringes and the beautiful Adriatic coast to the east.

Perhaps because Marche has historically been an isolated region, sheltered as it is from intrusion by its natural mountain borders to the north, south and west and by the Adriatic Sea, it is only slowly gaining rightful recognition.

The region gets comparatively little mention in the travel media, deferring to the wider fame of neighbouring Tuscany and Umbria. Yet it can justifiably claim to be Italy’s very own Garden of Eden.

It boasts lush greenery (often a surprise to visitors) and an enchanting mixture of sunflower fields, abundant woodland, many rivers which wind their way down to a beautiful coastline, and stunning mountain scenery.

Bordering both Umbria and Tuscany, as well as Abruzzo, Lazio and Emilia-Romagna, the region has an identity all of its own.

Walkers, trekkers and nature lovers can also find their feet here, with regional and national parks offering an abundance of outdoor activities, including trekking, mountain biking, paragliding, nature trails, hunting and fishing and ski-ing.

Marche has two national parks, the Monti Sibillini National Park and the Gran Sasso Monti Della Laga National Park.

The Monti Sibillini National Park actively promotes and protects wildlife habitats and has played a key role in building a stable population of wolves and other creatures such as the golden eagle. Wild boar abound and with the help of active re-introduction programmes there are also now signs of the return of the Marsicana brown bear from its stronghold in neighbouring Abruzzo. There are even signs of the return of the secretive and shy lynx.

Rising 572m from the sea near Ancona, Monte Conero is one of Marche’s best known landmarks. It is home to a regional park and is an excellent place to see birds such as the marsh harrier and long-legged buzzard, while its coastal waters offer beautiful coved beaches and are ideal for organised boat trips.

The other regional park by the sea is the Colle San Bartolo Regional Park near Gabicce, home to wetlands of national importance.

A myriad of fascinating caves form the central attraction of the inland park, Gola della Rossa Frasassi Regional Park, recognised as the most interesting limestone caves in Italy. Special tours lead you through a series of caves complete with small lakes, stalactites, huge stalagmites and onto the truly cavernous Abisso Ancona, a cave from ground to ceiling fully 240m high.

San Ginesio

The walled medieval town of San Ginesio, by comment consent one of Marche's most beautiful, is just 3km away and has a small but select group of bars, restaurants and shops. There is also a bank and a post office.

The larger town of Sarnano, famed for its curative spa and as a ski resort town in winter, is if anything even busier in the summer months, offering tourists a traditional Italian town of great beauty and practicality, with numerous restaurants, bars and shops as well as a thriving weekly market.

Close by are other pretty towns such as Amandola, Tolentino and Camerino. All are fascinating places to visit and experience some of Marche's unique history and architecture and taste its wines and prized cuisine.

Camerino is home to an ancient university and has been almost entirely restored since the earthquake of 1997. And nearby Caldarola is dominated by its renaissance castle, giving wonderful views over the town and countryside.

Situated close to the border with Umbria, Casa Giovanna is also an ideal place from which to explore Marche and central Italy in general, with Perugia, Bologna, Florence, Assisi, Siena and Rome all day-trip possibilities.

Yet there is also much to see and do closer to home. Southern Marche is also home to Ascoli Piceno with its unique marble piazza and to the north is the wonderful university town of Urbino, the birthplace of Raphael and the home of the Palazzo Ducale, an architectural masterpiece which houses Marche's most important museum, the Galleria nazionale delle Marche.

And with the Monti Sibillini National Park just 10 minutes drive away, nature lovers and walkers alike will undoubtedly want to spend much of their time in this truly spectacular wild place, which is home to a stable resident population of wolves and is also home to chamoix, golden eagle and eagle owls. There is even evidence of the return of the Marsicana brown bear from the adjoining national park to the south in Abruzzo and some evidence of the presence of the shy lynx.
