Marche Off The Beaten Path

  • Jesi - unknown city

    We were seen this town from highway to Ancona and stoped there.In the main square we found out that it was the hometown of Emperor of the Holy Roman Empire-Fridrich II. The town is full of narrow streets that tower above beautiful palaces, most of the bricks, while the richest with stone facades. This town has been very positive surprise. The only...

  • Our mystery chapel

    In our drives around the region we passed this small chapel on more than one occasion. It sits at the junction of Strada Provinciale Corinaldese and Strada Provinciale dei Castelli, a little south west of Corinaldo, where you turn off for Barbara three kilometres to the south (see location on Google maps. The chapel is unnamed, and I’ve not been...

  • Domo

    If you have the time and the opportunity when driving in Marche to make the detour to Domo (and it is a detour, for it lies on a side road off a side road) do so - you will not be disappointed. As to time, a stroll through the village will only occupy a few minutes perhaps, but you will be rewarded with a few picturesque stone houses clustered...

  • Walking in Le Marche- Golla...

    walkers looking for a change and some dramatic scenery should consider the"Hell's Gorge" walk near Montefortino in the Sibillini Mts. Watch the drive down to the start as the white roads seems to go on for ever. At the end of the road is a car park where the fun begins. Walk down and the cliffs tower above you-the first bit looks demanding but...

  • Wonderful Out-Of-The-Way Places in Le...

    We certainly saw plenty of out-of-the-way places while visiting the Le Marche. We became very intimate with the backroads.Most of these experiences were delightful, but, at times, we became exasperated. One such event happened when we were on our way to the coast, to Sirolo to be exact. We were doing nicely and then ran into a road block and had to...

  • SiroloSirolo is a pleasant...

    SiroloSirolo is a pleasant village in the middle of the Conero, and the Conero is what the locals call a mountain (they wish!). There's not a lot to do there on a rainy day, except visit the nice main square (Piazza Belvedere) and drink coffee. On a sunny day, however, I'm told there are wonderful beaches to sit on, and interesting boat trip to...

  • Frasassi caves...

    Frasassi caves, they are about 70 kilometers far from Ancona, but definitly deserve a visit.Going there with public transports is not so easy, it's better if you rent a car, take the speed way from Ancona to Rome and leave that street at Genga, the follow the directions to Grotte di Frasassi.For more information www.frasassi.comP.S.Don't forget to...

  • Offagna

    Visit Offagna, it's a lovely small medieval centre, here on summer there are some great medieval fests where you will let you eyes and your mouth have a good time. Try to visit the arms museum, it's interesting there are some old torture weapons.Photos in travelogue.

  • Unique beaches

    Try to go from Sirolo to Le due sorelle beach walking, it is a 20 minuts walk and you will join some great views, if you are a quite expert hiker, try also the 'passo del lupo' it's a very panoramic and not too safe street that goes from Monte Conero to the seaside.
