Le Marche

Le Marche, also called The Marches in English, is situated on the eastern side of central Italy. It runs from the Adriatic beaches to the mountains of Apennines. Its rich and diverse countryside is home to quaint villages, beautiful palaces and castles, convents and monasteries, that are treasured for their architectural and artistic value.


The region has a modern train network and has regular low cost flights departing from many European cities directly to Ancona airport (the airport is called Ancona – Falconara ) and the nearby airport of Pescara in the neighbour Abruzzi region, making it a very convenient holiday destination. The region is characterized by small  intimate cities like Ancona, Ascoli Piceno and Macerata, Pesaro and Urbino. Even though these are the main towns, there are other smaller towns such as Camerino, Jesi, Recanati, Fabriano, Loreto, Tolentino, San Ginesio, and Matelica which offer equally thrilling  opportunities and sightseeing. Other natural marvels can be found at Monti Sibillini  where impressive mountain sceneries and snow capped peaks provide breathtaking  views. The Frasassi Caves are spectacularly lined with limestone. Other  limestone caves can be found at the Furlo Gorge.
