Beautiful views all around and a sense of living history.
Le Marche is a stunningly beautiful region of Italy on the eastern side of the country on the Adriatic coast. Inland, the breathtaking mountains form a pastoral idyll with rolling hills and striking hilltop towns and villages. This is unspoilt Italy, where Italians come to enjoy renaissance art and architecture or share a seaside holiday with their bambini on one of the many blue flag beaches.
This area of Le Marche offers the visitor a wide variety of places to see, both locally and further afield:
Ascoli Piceno, a beautiful historic town, 40 minutes drive away is the capital of the province. It boasts many stunning buildings, fashioned from travertine marble; giving the effect of a place bathed in a honey hue. After seeing the paintings of the famous Venetian artist Carlo Crivelli, why not relax with a coffee and cake in the recently restored Art Deco Caffé Meletti famous for its house liqueur.
Loreto, just inland from Ancona and an hour's drive from Montalto, is another 'must see' town. It is one of the most important Roman Catholic shrines in the world which holds, nevertheless, many attractions for the non-religious visitor. Its position, high up on a hill, gives wonderful views from the mountains to the sea. It is possible to combine a cultural visit to Loreto with a trip to the sea.
The Conero Peninsula, minutes from Loreto is a protected nature reserve. Mount Conero is visible as a landmark from some distance. If you like a peaceful beach away from the crowds, then Sirolo is the place. It has a blue banner for clean sea water and beaches. The hill top town is charming, traffic free and well cared for.
Closer to home; twenty minutes away, is the seaside town of Grottamare. It is a fashionable resort with an Edwardian feel to it. The beaches are well manicured in the best Italian tradition and good seafood restaurants can be found along its walkways. The old centre called Monte Castello on the top of the hill is also worth a visit.
Nature lovers and walkers will be thrilled by the Sibylline mountains and national park, approximately 90 minutes away. In Spring, the wild flowers form a carpet of brilliant hues.
Holidaymakers in need of a further adventure might like a day trip to Rome. A comfortable bus with facilities leaves Grottamare several times a day. It is a three hour stress free journey and costs only €29 return.
There are many more places to see locally, including countless hill top towns, each with amazing architecture and valuable artifacts. But most important are the people of Le Marche with their easy charm and warm hearted approach to foreigners. This fact alone will leave you with a desire to come back again. We certainly did!

"We left our heart in Montalto"
The month of June in Montalto. It was like out of a novel about Italy! Incredible, spectacular! The best food, people, scenery…. and the lovely Maria! She made our stay and the trip would not have been the same without her enthusiasm for the people and towns of the Le Marche region. Wine-tasting, festivals, suggestions on where to eat, what to see, what to do, plus learning how to make fresh pasta! Overall a fantastic adventure. We will return to Le Marche!
