“If you had to decide which Italian landscape was the most typical, you would have to choose Le Marche…Italy, as a whole, is a kind of prism in which all landscapes of the world seem to be reflected. Italy, with its range of landscapes, is a distillation of the world; Le Marche are a distillation of Italy.”
Guido Piovene, Journey to Italy, 1957
A land of history, art and culture, Le Marche is one of the most charming and least explored regions of Italy. In this region, history, innovation, culture and landscape merge into a harmonious and suggestive fusion, which captures the eyes and the soul of those who watch and live it. The landscape is picturesque, animated by a series of hills that slope down from the Apennines to the Adriatic Sea, through natural parks and unspoilt mountains, green hills, medieval villages, towns of art of extraordinary beauty, marine parks and several beaches.
LE MARCHE: A NEW TASTE OF ANCIENT FLAVOURS
Le Marche is a land to discover, rich in traditions, faint perfumes and tastes which are simple and genuine, where the hospitality and the availability of people are sincere. Its colours, its soul and its warmth touch your heart conveying a harmony of the past, which has been preserved along the cobblestone streets of the oldest villages.
The fact that this region remains unknown to mass tourism makes it the ideal place to experience Italy. Unlike in larger Italian cities, in Le Marche you will have the opportunity to live in daily contact with the Italians, their language and their culture.
Discovering this region with us will be a magical adventure. We will experience the enchantment of the Monti Sibillini and Monti della Laga, at whose slopes ancient legends of witches and witchcraft are still told. We will walk along the narrow streets of Recanati, Offagna, Loreto, Offida, Acquaviva Picena, Grottammare, Ripatransone, Monteprandone, Petritoli, where you can still breathe the atmosphere typical of the stories told by our grandmothers. We will admire the beauty and majesty of artistic and architectural jewels such as Ascoli Piceno, Fermo, Urbino and Macerata. We will enjoy the nature of protected areas and marine parks such as Frasassi and the Regional Park of Monte Conero. We will venture into the rocky bottom of the Conero Riviera and relax along the golden sandy beaches of the Palm Riviera.
Ascoli Piceno, in the far South of Le Marche, is one of the most enchanting areas of the region, as it offers an infinite variety of landscapes and contains the essence of a region so varied and so rich.
Visit Le Marche, the ideal place for those who want to spend a holiday dedicated to relaxation, nature, culture and fun!
