Marche Favorites

  • The harbour

    Ancona Favorites

    Once the ferry sails out of the harbor, you can discover large warehouses, north-east to the city (first photo). The second and the third photo show the landscape that shows when the ferry tacks south-east. The promontory of Monte Conero is rocky and protects well the bay from southerly winds. The citadel that protected the city spreads on several...

  • Historical centre

    Ancona Favorites

    Probably the best way to explore Ancona, and certainly its old town, is on foot. This is unfortunately not that easy for anyone with walking difficulties, as the hills can be quite steep in places and there are steps in others, those same steps mean that it is only on foot that you can access some of the most interesting hidden corners. Our late...

  • Marche guidebooks: extraordinary places...

    In addition to the map with churches, abbeys and monasteries I also love these two little booklets of the series “Marche in tasce” (something like “Marche in your pocket”). I found these in the store of Fabriano’s Paper and Watermark Museum.Luoghi insoliti delle Marche – extraordinary places in Marche:Extraordinary places in Marche, ISBN:...

  • Marche Guidebooks: churches, monasteries...

    Those who know me and my preferred way to travel might know that I am always in search of the special, the particular, the hidden gems and locations. You might imagine my utmost felicity to find these books and maps about my beloved Italian region, Marche, and especially about the Appenninno part between Marche and Umbria.Pievi, Abbazie e Monasteri...

  • Marche - websites to prepare your visit

    By now my most preferred website to prepare my trips to Italy is Family Life TV. This company has produced a series called ”Piccola Grande Italia” (something like small big Italy) where they feature small towns. Their section for Marche covers the following villages (per province): Pesaro & Urbino: Fano and Sant’Angelo in VadoAncona: Cerreto d’Esi...

  • Marche - the region and its coat of arms

    For a good overview, the five minute video of Italian Travel - Marche gives quite a nice impression of the region. Marche region advertises with “Italy in one region”, but in my opinion the simple but impressing statistics the region’s tourism website gives, describe it better: 500 piazze/plazas, more than 1000 significant monuments, 37 rocce...

  • Travel through Macerata with “Mimi...

    Fans of Sicilian Commissario Montalbano will surely know Mimi Augello, Montalbano’s colleague, a womaniser but eventually marries his longtime girlfriend Beba. Actor Cesare Bocci, who plays Mimi, was born in Marchese town Camerino and is relatively popular in Italy. Recently, tourism board of Marche’s province Macerata and he have complied quite a...

  • Villages of Marche

    Another very distinctive characteristic of the Marche region, and indeed of much of Italy that I have seen, are these wonderful old stone villages perched enticingly on a hill-top. You can see at a glance why the early inhabitants built them where they did, and in the manner that they did. Fortified, easily protected, they command a view of the...

  • Fifty shades of green

    Marche is a region of contrasts. In a day's drive you can pass from the coast of the Adriatic, with its blue sea and pale sand beaches, through fields and vineyards dotted with stone hilltop villages, and end your day among the deep rocky gorges of the Apennines. All these landscapes are beautiful but it is the arable that most captivates me and...

  • No crowds in the off season

    This area is mostly visited by Italians in the first place, but in the off season they go back to work and you've got the place pretty much to yourself. An example being this picture of our car parked in the main square in Fabriano on a busy Monday afternoon.

  • The Marche: Where Italy's Name Was...

    Like many of you, I do research before I leave to know what we want to see & do. In the midst of all of my reading, I came across a most unusual bit of information that I'd like to share. Found on Italia, the official website of the Italian State Tourism Board-enit.They told tourists why we should visit the areas of Le Marche & Umbria. The article...

  • Opera

    This is Macerata, where there is one of the most beautiful open theater in Italy and in summer, it offers a really good opera season, I always find a great atmospheare reach Macerata, just leave the highway A14 at Civitanova Marche then procede to Macerata direction. My fondest memory about Macerata is their performance of *Traviata* the...
