MUST-SEE PLACES

Here you’ll find some places we recommend visiting to appreciate the nature, the beauty, the artistic value, the cultural offer and the gastronomic quality. Feel free to explore!

The Province of FERMO

Piazza del Popolo - Fermo

 The latest among the provinces of Le Marche is Fermo. Its hilly landscape is enclosed between a straight, mostly sandy coast and a mountainous area which is part of the National Park of Sibillini Mountains.

Fermo is a not-so-big territory with a powerful economic boost: its inner vocation for handcraft making whose best representatives are the small business districts, internationally known for the footfwear (the largest in Europe) and the hat productions.

Excellence in the agricultural production, mainly spread along the Valdaso valley and the mountains above , it stands for the quality and variety of the cultivated native species as well as for its products.

It’s definitely a territory to see, discover and … enjoy!

The eno-gastronomic and tourist routes we propose are designed to highlight the richness of this region whose wide food scene is the mirror of its eclectic territory. The hills, the mountains, the sea and the countryside are mixed together giving birth to an incredible variety of colors, flavors and taste.

Fine wines, fresh fish, healthy and delicious vegetables: creative and unusual combinations couple up with a long tradition, perfectly preserved and handed down.

Who hasn’t heard of the famous Maccheroncini di Campofilone and of the rich Vincisgrassi? Try to match them with a classic red wine like Rosso Piceno, a white one like Passerina or even Verdicchio di Jesi. You won’t regret it!

Stop on the coast for an unforgettable seafood dish, like the well-known Brodetto alla sambenedettese or ask for the famous stuffed Olive all’ascolana and the delicious Creminifritti and you will understand why Ascoli Piceno is an excellence for fried handmade products.

Enjoy the fruity Fistringo cake with its gentle yet firm personality and do not forget to taste the precious aroma of the white truffle of Acqualagna and Sant’Angelo in Vado.

Our range of cheese will conquer even the most demanding palate with a wide variety of goat,cow and sheep’s dairy products.

The local wines will be the perfect treat to complete this journey inside the taste, the smell and the feeling of our land.

The province of ANCONA

 Anyone loving Nature and its hidden beauties will be astonished by the wonders of Frasassi caves. The path winds along a gorgeous sight, about 1 hour and 15 minutes walk, and it’s accessible to everybody. The temperature of 14 degrees is constant throughout the year and we recommend comfortable shoes and a sweatshirt even in Summer.
