The Marche Region in northern Italy
lies between the Apennine Mountains and the Adriatic Sea. What would you like to see on your Italian holidays? The impressive medieval fortress
of Acquaviva Picena, surrounded by multi-storied buildings, offers a panoramic view of the patch-work fields marked out on the rolling hills - with the snow-capped mountains seen in the distance. A below-the-earth sculptural masterpiece
awaits you as you explore the stalagmite and stalactite decorated limestone caves – including the impressive Abisso Ancona with its height soaring to over 200 metres - at the Gola della Rossa Frasassi Regional Park
. Staying at privately-owned vacation rental accommodations offers you convenience, privacy and brings you into the heart of your Italian holiday experience. Villa rentals are a popular lodging alternative to staying in a hotel. Protected national and regional parks introduce you to the natural beauty of the Marche region. Visit the towns of Ascoli Piceno
, Ancona, Urbino, and Pesaro – each with its artistic and cultural charm. Attend the operatic event of the summer held in the town of Macerata.
It is staged in a semi-circular shaped neoclassic structure and arena built in the years 1820-1829, and has room for 7000 spectators.
With its attachment to the sea, its mountainous terrain, and numerous lakes: you can enjoy horseback riding, play a game of golf
