Urbino among the 10 Italian places not to be missed to admire the Genius of the Renaissance

Urbino among the 10 Italian places not to be missed to admire the Genius of the Renaissance | Le Marche another Italy | Scoop.it

Urbino
Located in Italy's seldom visited Marche region, Urbino is a true gem; one of the capitals of Renaissance. Here Federico da Montefeltro, the most skilled warlord of his time and duke of the city from 1444 to 1482, commissioned a magnificent Palace: a wonder of early Renaissance architecture, today symbol of the city in the world.

Ascoli Piceno among Europe’s Best Towns and Cities where to live for $2,500 a Month or Less

Ascoli Piceno among Europe’s Best Towns and Cities where to live for $2,500 a Month or Less | Le Marche another Italy | Scoop.it

Many expats are drawn to the idea of retiring in Europe, but can be thrown off by the high prices of its most famous destinations. But while big cities such as Paris and Madrid may hit hard on the wallet, there are still many alternatives for those seeking the romance of Europe, but at an affordable cost. [...]

Mariano Pallottini's insight:

Ascoli Piceno, at the southern edge of Le Marche, is a gorgeous town of medieval monuments and Renaissance splendor, which is largely overlooked—but it shouldn’t be. It offers a high quality of life in its beautiful historic center, where everything you need is at your doorstep, and where events and exhibits regularly liven up the town.

The locals like to point out that Ascoli Piceno is older than Rome. They’re rightfully proud of their city and their lifestyle. It is beautiful and relaxed, and there is always something to do: an art exhibit among Roman ruins, cinema under the stars in a 15th-century cloister, concerts in the piazza, and a twice-weekly market that rolls into town. The velvet-clad opera theater is an opulent venue, while homey food festivals provide inexpensive (and delicious) fun.

In addition to the beauty and quality of life, Ascoli Piceno retains its small local shops, where fresh produce, locally raised meat, and regional products can be procured at good prices. Restaurants are plentiful, with excellent fare that won’t break the bank either. You can dine out and enjoy a bountiful meal for about $20 per person.

International Living Correspondent Valerie Fortney Schneider says that Ascoli Pisceno “offers the classic Italian lifestyle of good food, great wine, and cultural attractions for around $2,000 a month for a couple, and that’s including rent.

Apartments in the historic center can be rented for around $530 a month. If you are looking to buy, you can expect to pay $95,000 and $165,000 for a historic center apartment, while a two-bedroom townhouse will set you back about $184,000.

Sarah Topps's curator insight, September 16, 2016 1:26 AM
We certainly agree. Ascoli Piceno is one of our favorite places to visit too and although personally we would never choose to live in a city (we love the countryside too much!), if we did, it would be Ascoli! You can even stay at The Hideaway with us whilst house hunting as we are only 30 minutes away!

Acqualagna the only Cittaslow in Le Marche

Acqualagna the only Cittaslow in Le Marche | Le Marche another Italy | Scoop.it

Italy is home to the Cittaslow movement which combines “Slow Food” with the art of leisurely good living. As delectable dining is one of the great joys of Italy, make time to discover at least one or two of the network’s 70 small towns.

The small city of Acqualagna (pop. 4,000), located just a few kilometres from the magnificent Furlo River Gorge, is known for its centuries-old tradition of truffle gathering, production and marketing. Truffle collectors and merchants who operate on all of the world markets have their offices here or conduct the larger part of their business from Acqualagna. The Acqualagna truffle market has become the preferred venue for the wholesale of truffles: 2/3 of the entire national production (5/600 quintals of all types of truffles) are traded here. The countries which especially prize the product include Germany (the largest European consumer), Belgium, Holland, France (which produces large quantities of black truffles in the South), USA and Canada.

Embrace Your Wild Side & Explore the Hidden Treasures of Italy: Le Marche with @Collisioni

Embrace Your Wild Side & Explore the Hidden Treasures of Italy: Le Marche with @Collisioni | Le Marche another Italy | Scoop.it

All roads lead to Rome, in our case “wine”. Our insatiable quest and love for Italy and all things Italian leads us off the beaten path to the land of Italy’s noble native white varietal Verdicchio – Le Marche. Pronounced ‘Lay Markay’, roughly the size of Delaware, this Italian province aptly translates “the borderlands”, hugs the Adriatic Sea to the east with a 111-mile-long coastline and stretches of unspoiled countryside extend into Emilia-Romagna to the north, Tuscany and Umbria to the West, and Abruzzo and Lazio to the south.

Is Europe's best beer from Italy, Le Marche?

Is Europe's best beer from Italy, Le Marche? | Le Marche another Italy | Scoop.it

Tenute Collesi was established in 1870 but the Collesi family had been farming on the lands for three centuries. It was decades later when Giuseppe Collesi decided he would begin brewing beer on the family Estate.
Like Enzo Ferrari, Collesi too was not out to produce yet another ordinary beer. He set out to create something superior. He did, and these are some of the reasons why we believe this.
Why is a scenic little mountain town of approximately 2000 inhabitants in the region of Marche labeled Italy's City of Beer?
Nestled in the Apennine/Mount Nerone foothills is Apecchio a village that is leading the Italian craft beer scene and is called "La Citta della Birra" which is Italian for City of Beer. This is the location of Collesi's extremely traditional yet ultra modern brewery. [...]

Frasassi Caves and the other Caves in Italy

Frasassi Caves and the other Caves in Italy | Le Marche another Italy | Scoop.it

This group of caves [Frasassi Caves] is one of the most famous in the country. Located in the central region of Marche, the caves were reportedly first discovered in 1948, though most sources state that 1971 is when they began to be explored. They feature a series of linked chambers, one of which is a bizarre shape that feels like an endless tunnel when in fact it is one very long chamber. Today the caves are open to the public for daily visits, and they are estimated to be around 190 million years old.

This is the List of the best caves in Italy

  1. Blue Grotto - Capri
