Le Marche is a region in central Italy, which is as wonderful as it is unusual thanks to its ever-changing landscapes.
Le Marche is famous for its harmonious and sinuous landforms, for its cliffs and caves that alternate with unforgettable beaches, for its hills that evoke centuries of history, tradition and art, for its mountains fitted with ski lifts for ski enthusiasts, and for its shallow, sandy beaches.
Ancona, the capital of the Marche region, is a captivating city that displays glimpses and beauty from the various historical periods it has passed through.
There are countless monuments worth visiting in the city, such as Trajan's Arch, the Cathedral, the Theatre of the Muses, Palazzo Ferretti, the Venetian-style Loggia dei Mercanti, Palazzo del Senato and Palazzo del Governo, the ancient and evocative Calamo Fountain and that of the Thirteen Spouts, the Mole Vanvitelliana.
Surrounding the city lie enchanting panoramas, including hills and glimpses of the sea. A unique and spectacular area.
Loreto, a renowned Sanctuary City, is situated on a hill surrounded by the beautiful Marche countryside.
The area is the setting for the majestic Basilica of the Holy House, an ancient pilgrimage site dedicated to the Virgin Mary, which preserves the precious relic of the house inhabited by the Virgin Mary's family in Nazareth.
The birthplace of Giacomo Leopardi, Recanati sits on a hilltop overlooking both Monte Conero and the Sibillini Mountains.

The Gola della Rossa and Frasassi Regional Natural Park in the province of Ancona conceals the most famous karstic caves in the Marche Apennines.
