Le Marche: A Meaningful Place to Start The Bike Across Italy Tour - Ciclismo Classico

Le Marche: A Meaningful Place to Start The Bike Across Italy Tour - Ciclismo Classico | Le Marche another Italy | Scoop.it

There’s a reason our coast-to-coast Bike Across Italy Tour starts in region of Le Marche on Italy’s Adriatic Coast, before continuing through Umbria, Lazio and Tuscany and reaching the Mediterranean Sea. This 11-day journey is inspired by the life-changing solo bike trip Ciclismo Classico founder Lauren Hefferon took in 1983 to reconnect with her roots in little-known Le Marche.

Graduating from Cornell with four years of Italian under her belt, Lauren sent letters to cousins in Le Marche asking to visit and learn more about her family. Landing in Pisa, she biked for five days to reach the little town of Genga, where her grandmother Beatrice Fracassini lived until the age of 18 when she left for the U.S.

“My grandmother’s cousin ran down the road when she saw me, she grabbed my fully-loaded bike and brought me to her family’s house,” Lauren says. “Over the course of the next few days, I met all of the relatives of my grandmother and ate many wonderful meals of Marchegiani specialties.”

The Bike Across Italy Tour spends a day and night in Genga – which has changed since Lauren’s grandmother left this poor town. The discovery of the nearby Grotte di Frassassi in the 1950s and 60s now brings visitors from all over the world. These are largest caves or grottoes in Europe – filled with otherworldly stalactites and stalagmites formed by an underground river.

Tipping a hat to Lauren’s grandfather, Generoso Orazietti who was born in the seaside city of Fano, the Bike Across Italy Tour explores this former ancient Roman settlement with a guided tour ending with a fresh fish dinner prepared Le Marche-style.

Proving just how varied the landscape of Le Marche is, the Bike Across Italy Tour then takes intermediate cyclists inland pedaling through fields and farmland with foothills in the distance. This is where the walled, fairy tale city of Urbino awaits. Under the patronage of the Duke of Montefeltro in the mid-15th century, Urbino enjoyed its own independent Renaissance, resulting in the construction of great palaces and churches as well as the birth of new artistic traditions and indeed, the birth of High Renaissance master Raphael who hails from Urbino.

Our days in Le Marche are just the beginning of our Bike Across Italy Tour but set the tone for a grand Italian journey filled with both connections and surprises.

Marche Region’s Archeological National Museum in Ancona

Marche Region’s Archeological National Museum in Ancona | Le Marche another Italy | Scoop.it

Since 1958 Ferretti Palace has become the centre of Marche Region Archeological National Museum (also MANM). It represents a concrete historical-archeological synthesis running by ancient Prehistory until the threshold of the diffusion of roman culture. We have to dedicate an apart chapter to Piceni Civilization that is present in the museum with an as much rich as prestigious collection...

Nowadays inside the museum you can admire the evidences of periods such as Paleolithic, Neolithic, Eneolithic, Bronze Age, Piceni and Gaul Senoni civilizations.
Your tour may be extended by visiting the recently discovered ruins standing in front of Ferretti Palace, Roman Amphitheatre ruins dominating the hill of the museum in Birarelli Str. (ancient prison of Ancona) and the rests found during the diggings for the modern underground car parking located in Stamira Sq....

Not only Tuscany in Italy: Le Marche Landscape

Not only Tuscany in Italy: Le Marche Landscape | Le Marche another Italy | Scoop.it

Pronounced "lay markay", the name Le Marche is plural and is sometimes translated into English as "The Marches".
The landscape of Le Marche is as various as it could be: a flat coastal plain in the east, dramatic snow capped Apennines mountains in the west and in between gently rolling countryside covered with small hilltop towns and villages. Undulating wheat fields, olive groves, vine hillsides and dramatic ravines give to the countryside a romantic, timeless flair.

Undiscovered Italy: Ascoli Piceno in the Marche Region - by Francine Segan

Undiscovered Italy: Ascoli Piceno in the Marche Region - by Francine Segan | Le Marche another Italy | Scoop.it
I recently had the best meal of my life, and of course, it was in Italy!

And so began my love affair with the entire province of Ascoli Piceno one of the most marvelous, and yet relatively undiscovered, areas of Italy. Un-touristy and friendly, beautifully restored yet totally authentic, and still relatively inexpensive compared to other Italian regions. Ascoli Piceno has it all— ancient Roman ruins, medieval hilltop towns, Renaissance art, lively nightlife. The area has mountains as well as beaches, nature, culture, shopping and fabulous food and wines.

Quality Le Marche bike rental hire for cycling holidays in Italy

Quality Le Marche bike rental hire for cycling holidays in Italy | Le Marche another Italy | Scoop.it

We have experienced ever increasing numbers of guests who want to bring their own machines or have asked us with help in arranging an Italian bike rental in Le Marche and we have become more and more frustrated.
The cyclists who come on holiday to Marche tend to be cycle enthusiasts who expect the best and there just hasn’t been a high end rental facility available.
Initially we contacted a franchise who operate cycle rentals throughout Italy but found their delivery costs and bike hire prices to be very high, also wherever possible we want our guests to shop locally and we want the local community to benefit especially when they are able to offer a quality service.
From our earliest days here in Le Marche region, when in doubt we have always asked a local. Like most villages in Italy we have a local bike club who, on a weekly basis, don lycra and strive for burning thighs and chafing, in our case we contacted Marco from the local bike club, who has helped us with the supply of high end bike rentals.
If you know anything about the local Le Marche terrain or have read about the great routes via our cycling holidays page then you may have decided to come and do a bit of riding and will want a bike hire. [...]

La Rocca di Offagna and the Medieval Festivals

La Rocca di Offagna and the Medieval Festivals | Le Marche another Italy | Scoop.it

The Rocca is a symbol of the ancient medieval village of Offagna. It was built up between 1454 and 1456 and it immediately had a remarkable rule in the transitional military architecture history, following medieval fortification themes, and as defense against the attacks of the near Osimo.

Having quadrangular plan, the Rocca distinguishes itself because the presence of a Mastio over 30 metres high – house of the lord of the castle – having a bronze bell dated 1477, and it was used to alert the people of a imminent danger. The Mastio, tower of command and highest point of sighting, was also given the charge of advanced defensive building compared to the south-eastern frontline. Provided with a walling, reinforced with towers, the Rock is a rare example of transitional fortification most probably the result of the great talent of Lombard workers...
