Wedged perfectly between the Adriatic and the Apennines, Marche is a true testament to its history. Practically every town here is equipped with castle, turret, and church all in reflection to the centuries of medieval battle that took place here. Sleepy and forgotten seaside resorts transport you as far back as the renaissance while the Palazzo Ducale in Urbino stands tall among the surrounding hills in historical defiance.

Three Days

The harbour city and regional capital of Ancona is often overlooked by those who ferry in from Greece and other destinations. The hilltop views of the Adriatic are nothing short of stunning. The Conero Riviera is also popular destination spot for those who deserve some much needed relaxation.

One Week

For a real taste of the renaissance take a tour of Urbino and its surrounding austere townships. Finally for a genuine immersion of Marche go on a food tour. From Macerata to Caldarola there’s something for everyone. Wash it all down with a full glass of Rosso Piceno, made from regional Sangiovese grapes.
