The Marche region is in the center of Italy, between the Apennine Mountains and the Adriatic Sea about one hour by train from Castelraimondo).
Its landscape is reminiscent of Tuscany and Umbria, with mountains, hills and beaches all within a short distance. There are no big cities and the capital Ancona has only about 100,000 inhabitants; on the other hand, the Marche are characterized by a multitude of small medieval villages, with impressive castles, churches, fortresses and theatres that bear witness to a past rich in history and culture. Although 160 kilometers of sandy beaches used to be the main reason for tourists to visit the region, the inland is absolutely one of the most interesting parts to be discovered.
Among the most famous cities of the region are Urbino, with its almost intact Renaissance historical center, Pesaro, Ancona, Macerata – famous for its summer Opera Festival in the “Sferisterio” Arena – Fermo and Ascoli Piceno, which boasts one of the most beautiful squares in the Italian peninsula.
For those who love nature, the must-visit places are the small beach of Sirolo, a real hidden gem on the Adriatic coast, the national park of the Sibillini Mountains, covered with snow until spring and unveiling the largest flowery meadow in Europe in May and June, and the marvelous Frasassi Caves.
