Marche is located in the eastern central Italy between the Adriatic coast and the Appenines, largely spared from mass tourism.
The region is rich in artistic and cultural treasures, such as Urbino the cradle of the Renaissance, Jesi the birthplace of Frederick II, Tolentino with beautiful frescoes of St. Nicholas of Tolentino etc, numerous museums, outstanding cultural programs with theatrical performances and historical spectacles. The historic cities and the sights should not be missed even on a short vacation.
Coast and sea, nature, ancient cities, food and wine, ancient villages and spirituality. The Marche region offers an unusual richness. In addition to the beaches on the Adriatic coast, in Le Marche you will find twelve protected natural areas, two of which are national parks (Monti Sibillini and Gran Sasso and Monti della Laga).
Four regional parks complete the diversity (Monte Conero, Sasso Simone and Simoncello, Monte San Bartolo and Gola della Rossa and Frasassi). The six nature reserves of the Marche Region (Abbadia di Fiastra, Montagna di Torricchio, Ripa Bianca, Sentina, Gola del Furlo and Monte San Vicino and Monte Canfaito) complete the offer together with more than a hundred protected plant areas and fifteen state forests, as well as an extensive network of hiking trails. The culinary specialties of the Marche region from the countryside and the sea are a real delight. It is a pure pleasure to embark here on a voyage of discovery between the Apennines and the Adriatic coast.
