The most distinguishing features of the Marche region are its picturesque landscape and rolling hills.

The mountains of the Appennino centrale are a prominent destination for hikers and skiers – 29 of its peaks reach heights of over 2,000 meters (6,500 feet). These mountains border other regions in central Italy, such as Emilia Romagna, Toscana, Umbria, Lazio, and Abruzzo. The area is dotted here and there with small, charming villages where houses cling to the hillsides, bundled closely together.

Beneath the mountains’ peaks, a series of gentle hills expand down to the fine, golden sands of the Mare Adriatico. These hills are more densely populated and abound with historic places. One of these hills ends at the Promontorio del Conero (second in height to Gargano), southeast of Ancona, where its seaside cliffs perch over the waters below. It is an area that attracts all sorts of outdoor enthusiasts with its expansive views and a wide array of outdoor activities, ranging from free climbing to a simple stroll along the alpine trails.

The Marche region is certainly not the one of the most well-known regions in Italy, but its rich variety of landscapes allow for all types of vacations. There are opportunities for those who want something dynamic and adventurous, as well as something for those who prefer a more relaxing experience with their families. In addition, its cultural sites and regional cuisine will make any vacation here an unforgettable experience.
