Le Marche (the Marches) The whole of Italy in one region

Few know about Le Marche. A sixty kilometers wide strip of landscape - on the one side the Adriatic Sea with its endless beaches, cliffs, soft sand, on the other the majestic mountains of the Apennines.

Rolling hills, a smiling landscape, filled with vegetation, mountains up to two-thousand metres high and beautiful nature parks.
... And so close to the sea.
Sea, mountains, history, art, customs, spirituality, nature, culinary specialties and wine: "Le Marche are the meaning of Italy".

The coast and the sea of Le Marche
Le Marche has over 180 kilometers of coastline with 26 seaside resorts on the Adriatic, which is characterized by beautiful beaches, picturesque coves, 9 ports and 16 "Blue Flag" beaches guaranteeing the quality of water and sustainable development, for example the "velvet beach" ("Spiaggia di Velluto"), as the coast is called at the remarkable seaside resort of Senigallia.
The special shape of the territory in Ancona makes it possible to enjoy both beautiful sunrises as well as sunsets over the sea. The grassy cliffs of Monte Conero offers spectacular scenery, it breaks up the flat shore, creating a beautiful stretch of pebble beaches, rocks and steep cliffs that drop into the sea.
