ABOUT THE AREA
Le Marche is one of Italy’s best-kept secrets. Sandwiched between the Adriatic and its better known neighbours Tuscany and Umbria, this quiet and sparsely-populated region has long slipped under the travel radar. Yet with a string of charming hilltop towns and a landscape ranging from snow-capped Apennine peaks to dreamy beaches and otherworldly caves, it’s the perfect place to experience Italy without the crowds. Here are a few reasons why Le Marche should be on your next Italian itinerary.
Renaissance art in Urbino
There’s nowhere better to revel in Renaissance art than Urbino. The town was a major cultural centre in the 15th century and it was here that the artist Raphael was born in 1483. Still today, its historic centre hums with activity as students mill about between lectures at the local uni. Urbino’s superlative art collection adorns the Galleria Nazionale delle Marche in Palazzo Ducale, itself a formidable example of Renaissance architecture. Check out Piero della Francesca’s Flagellazione di Cristo (Flagellation of Christ) and La Muta (Portrait of a Young Woman), an enigmatic work by Raphael who grew up nearby at the Casa Natale di Raffaello.
Coastal scenery in the Parco del Conero
Rivalling the Cinque Terre for beauty, the Parco del Conero boasts one of Italy’s most glorious coastal stretches. Here, the cobalt blue waters of the Adriatic lap onto pristine pebbly beaches backed by white cliffs and aromatic woods of pine, oak, beech and oleander trees. The area is well known locally but relatively few foreign travellers make it here, and it retains a peaceful, unspoiled air. Its central resorts are Portonovo, Numana and Sirolo, from where you can walk to two of the area’s best beaches: Spiaggia Urbani and Spiaggia San Michele. Another idyllic beach, the Spiaggia delle Due Sorelle, is accessible by summer-only ferries from Numana.
Street food in Ascoli Piceno
Street food in Ascoli Piceno means olive all’ascolana (fried olives stuffed with minced meat). These crispy bite-size snacks are a long-standing local speciality and you’ll find no end of takeaways and bars serving them. Food apart, Ascoli is an animated provincial town with an elegant historic centre punctuated by majestic churches and photogenic piazzas such as Piazza del Popolo and the nearby Piazza Arringa. To catch Ascoli at its most festive, come in April for the fried food fest Fritto Misto all’Italiana.
Going underground at the Grotte di Frasassi
Along with its rugged peaks and silent green valleys, Le Marche also counts thrilling underground treasures. The Grotte di Frasassi is one of Europe’s largest cave systems, a subterranean wonderland that has been gouged out of the karst undersoil by the river Sentino. Guided tours take in features such as the Ancona Abyss, a giant chamber reaching heights of 200 metres, and the Gran Canyon, a haunting space full of monumental stalactites and stalagmites. The caves are situated in remote hill country near the village of Genga in the centre of the region. To get to them from Ancona, take the SS76 and exit at Genga-Sassoferrato.
