Surprising and wonderful in its diversity, the Marches show off their multi-faceted beauty through cliffs and caves that overlook unforgettable beaches, hills that are steeped in history, and rich traditions and cultures, all set against a backdrop of mountains.
The Marches is mostly comprised of hills and mountains; the region embraces the Adriatic side of the Umbria-Marche Appennines, yet in contrast features low-lying, sandy beaches.
No less lovely are Gabicce Mare, Pesaro, Fano, Civitanova Marche and San Benedetto del Tronto. If you’re looking to unwind and recharge, visit one of the many fashionable resorts frequented by high society as far back as the Nineteenth Century. For those who love extreme nature, on the other hand, the Conero Riviera offers amazing views and patches of still unspoilt land, often only accessible via sea or footpaths.
The Marches protect their natural environment through National and Regional nature reserves. Don’t miss the Frasassi Caves, a must-see for tourists from all over Europe. Of great interest to speleologists due to their karst, this underground landscape is truly awe-inspiring, especially considering that parts of it have been lived in practically since time began.
