Le Marche: The Unknown Corner of Italy


The Region of Le Marche is located on the east coast of Italy, in the Adriatic, bordering on the west with the Tuscany and Umbria. Larger town and capital of Le Marche is Ancona, perhaps the only known city to serve as a transit port to the rest of Italy.

Hidden rocky beaches accessible only by trails or by boat, and beautiful villages built on hills, this place is a secret paradise. To cross the coastal area you can get the train connecting Bologna to Brindisi from the 19th century.

You can visit the city Urbino, which is built on a hill. The walled city of 15,000 inhabitants was one of the capitals of the Renaissance in the Middle Ages, where artists, architects and scholars came from all over Italy.

Today, the charming Urbino preserves its medieval atmosphere with magnificent palazzi, sprawling streets and mountain peaks surrounding it, while it is worth seeing the Palazzo Ducale and the Casa Natale di Raffaello, the home of the famous painter and architect of the Renaissance, Raphael . Since 1998, the entire historic center has been included in the UNESCO World Heritage Sites.
