These are the numbers of le Marche, but as the locals say, that to taste the region a visitor needs only 5 things – his own senses. Tucked between the Adriatic Sea and the Apennine mountain range the region can be visited and enjoyed during all seasons.
In the summer, le Marche offers some of the finest white sand beaches of the entire Mediterranean basin. A shallow sea water level makes its coastline the perfect spot for sun worshippers and beach lovers.
Wintertime offers sports activities on the peaks of the Apennines, with alpine and Nordic skiing for all levels.
In the fall, the hills, the region’s most prominent feature, are covered with olive trees and vineyards that produce excellent olive oil and many notable wines.
Small towns, rich with history and each with its unique architectural style, offer excellent accommodations in perfectly restored farmhouses, villas, castles and monasteries. Mix everything with an exclusive local cuisine and you have found the perfect spot for your next vacation to Italy.
We offer a new tour featuring some of the most beautiful little-known towns in Italy, a tour that will provide a deep inside view of real Italian life away from the crowded tourist haunts; we want you to experience le Marche as locals say: See, Hear, Smell, Taste and Touch this last highly livable place.
