Striking and Varied Coastlines and beaches
The coastline of Le Marche is one of the most striking and varied of the Adriatic, and for scenery and ambience there is something to satisfy every kind of traveller. In the North you have medieval fishing ports with castles and forts and are steeped in local history. Centrally you have Mount Conero with its natural park and craggy cliffs. And then to the south you have the splendid beach towns of Grottomare and San Benedetto De Tronto.

Explore the Historical Towns
Le Marche is spoilt for choice when it comes to medieval hilltop towns. Every city, town, village or copse is awash with history and character. As soon as you enter the gates to the towns you are greeted with either the hustle & bustle of the weekly market or the calm relaxing atmosphere of Siesta time and the chinking of the coffee cups in the local bar.

The larger towns of Macerata, Urbino and Ascoli Piceno all offer a wealth of Rennaisance architecure and excellent shopping throughout the old cobbled streets and piazza's.

National Parks, Active pursuits and Ski-ing.
There are lots of activities in Le Marche for the more active people. Walking, hiking, trekking, mountain climbing and biking with able and professional guides who know all the hidden paths and routes through the Sibillini mountains. There are also flying clubs with micro-lights and hang gliding offering courses for beginners.

Accommodation in Le Marche can be found within easy distance of the Appenine mountains providing the ideal opportunity to discover winter sport in some of the finest surroundings in Italy. In the winter you'll find good skiing in the Sibillini National Park, with plentiful snow - close enough for a day trip. 60mins.
