Places of Interest and Attractions in Marche

Marche is a central region of Italy on the east coast composed of rolling hills and fertile plains at the base of the Apennine mountains. It is bordered by Adriatic Sea in the east. Marche offers beautiful Adriatic beaches and ancient towns perched on hilltops, or nestled deep between rolling farmland.

Le Marche is located in the Central area of the country, bordering Emilia-Romagna and the republic of San Marino to the north, Tuscany to the north-west, Umbria to the west, Abruzzo and Lazio to the south and the Adriatic Sea to the east. Except for river valleys and the often very narrow coastal strip, the land is hilly. In the nineteenth century, a railway from Bologna to Brindisi ran along the coastline of the entire territory. Inland, the mountainous nature of the region, even today, allows little travel north and south, except by rough roads over the passes. The parallel mountain chains contain deep river gorges, the best known being those of the Furlo, the Rossa and the Frasassi.

The Piazza del Popolo is a renaissance-style square in the city of Ascoli Piceno, and is considered to be one of the most beautiful of this architectural style in Italy. It has often featured in commercials such as that of the Fiat 500 (1998).
