A few days ago Le Marche region (the only representative of Italy in the ranking) was included in the best destinations (Top ten regions) to visit in the Lonely Planet Best in Travel 2020.
From the sea, to the hills up to the highest peaks of the Sibillini Mountains, this territory never ceases to amaze.
For lovers of the sea we start from the south with San Benedetto del Tronto with its long sea full of palm trees and a beautiful bike path, to climb further north and find the wonderful village of Torre di Palme, then Civitanova, the Conero with the its wild beaches set in the natural park … up to Fano and then Pesaro (Rossini‘s birthplace) on the border with the Romagna Riviera.
Mountain lovers can, instead, give vent to all their desire for nature, snow and landscapes in some lunar ways by plunging into the Park of the Sibillini Mountains.
The Vettore mountain, the Sibilla Peak and the Pilato lake are the undisputed stars, but for those with good legs and curiosity this is an area of the Marche that will give great satisfaction
Set between the placid Adriatic coast and the mountains of the hinterland there is a world made of soft hills of a thousand colors, where it is the most normal thing in the world to come across towns or villages that are still in time.
Urbino with its infamous ducal palace is perhaps the best known destination, and right here in 2020 the 500th anniversary of the death of one of the greatest Renaissance painters, Raffaello Sanzio will be celebrated.
Not least are the 23 “Most beautiful villages in Italy” scattered throughout the territory, among which I think Serra San Quirico, Corinaldo, Mondavio, and Genga stand out to name those closest to our structure.
Countless are the typical products of which you can boast the food and wine of the Marche. For those who are fond of fried food, Ascoli Piceno is certainly the capital of the world and its Oliva all’Ascolana is something unforgettable; Acqualagna, on the other hand, is the home of the truffle that has nothing to envy to that of the Piedmontese cousins; Fabriano is the master with his I.G.P salami of delicious pork mixed with lardons (chunks of selected lard).
A separate discussion should be made for wine. Native vines give life to noteworthy white and red grape nectars, with unmistakable characters and blessing aromas. The Verdicchio dei Castelli di Jesi and that of the Castelli di Matelica have in recent years received the recognition they deserved, while on the front of the red the Lacrima di Morro continues to fascinate the enthusiasts with its unique characteristics.
Art, culture, food and wine, religion and natural beauty make the Marche a perfect mix and make it a destination that can be visited at any time of the year, perfect for spending your holidays.
Come and visit us, let yourself be pampered by our kitchen and we will try to give you as much information as possible to fully enjoy all that this still little known region has to offer.
