Your holidays in The Marches: all you need to know for your next stay

Le Marche (the Marches), a small region in Central Italy, cherishes plenty of outstanding natural beauties and a rich historic and cultural heritage.

The Adriatic Sea laps against a fascinating succession of sandy beaches, steep cliffs, small coves and charming creeks which are a real paradise for sea lovers. The Conero Peninsula and the popular seaside resorts of Sirolo and Numana are the privileged holiday destinations for those flocking to the Marches.

San Benedetto del Tronto, a famous seaside resort situated south in the Marches, is an unspoiled natural oasis. Lush palm trees follow one another along the sea front and the nearby green hills are dotted with small, ancient medieval villages which are scattered with inestimable artistic and historic finds.

Ancona, the regional capital and thriving port city, the enchantig hinterland, which still retains precious vestiges dating back to past ages, the Montefeltro, delightful artistic cities, such as Urbino, the beautiful city of Ascoli Piceno, where medieval and Renaissance patterns merge in pleasant harmony, and the small village of Recanati, the native town of Leopardi which is still pervaded with the profusion of his outstanding poems, are the ideal holiday destinations for cultural tourists flocking to the Marches. The sanctuary of Loreto, a popular religious mecca which is renowned all over the world for the Black Madonna it hosts, rises on the top of the sweet hills situated south of Ancona.

The snow-capped Mounts Sibillini and their National Park, the latter being scattered with plenty of footpaths which offer tourists the possibility to make pleasant excursions both in winter and summer, are among the most beautiful mountainous landscapes in the Italian Apennines.

The Marches is able to attract different kinds of tourists and to meet even their most demanding requirements.
