Discovering Italy – Le Marche

Thursday, 25th August, 2011 by Chris Please

Le Marche is located in central Italy, bordering the Adriatic Sea with famous seaside resorts, characterized by a mild climate and great beaches.


Inland is a lush countryside which hosts the majesty of the Sibillini and Monti della Laga, which are part of the Gran Sasso National Park. Le Marche is a region rich in history and archaeological sites that has all the ingredients for cultural and entertainment venues. The capital cities are: Ancona, Ascoli Piceno, Fermo, Macerata and Pesaro Urbino.

Without doubt, the landscape of the Marches is a clear expression of cultural pluralism settled from centuries of artistic excellence. Le Marche is one of the richest Italian regions in terms of cultural heritage: 500 squares, 106 castles, 15 forts, 170 towers and thousands of churches, 200 of which are Romanesque. There are also 96 abbeys, 183 sanctuaries and 72 restored and working historic theatres. In the Marches there is a high density of museums and art galleries as well as 315 libraries holding volumes of ancient tradition, among which are the Hermitage of Fonte Avellana and the Leopardi family.

The marchigiana inland , where you can spend a quiet holiday in all seasons, is especially suited to those who want to escape the crowd and prefer a stay of hiking, horseback riding, canoeing and mountain biking. The Appenine mountains offer nine ski resorts and interesting paths for people who like cross-country skiing. Visiting Le Marche means rediscovering ancient crafts which are handed down through generations in the workshops and enjoying a variety of gastronomic tradition.

This is LeMarches, a region of Italy where the variety of history, culture and landscape are definitely worth a visit. It is a region where within an hour’s drive you can travel from the mountains to the sea. The Region itself is investing a lot to spread this unknown side of paradise where excellent wines are produced (Rosso Piceno, Passerina Offida, Verdicchio di Jesi and more…) and where property prices are good.
