What do I love about living in Italy?
To summarise, there’s lots I love about Italy which is why I moved here but I’ve discovered so much more having lived here and I’m still learning. If you get the opportunity to live here for a bit, I would certainly recommend it. [...]
Here is a nice, shaded hike below Lake Fiastra starting at Monastero at the cemetery. One can visit the canyon dug by the river over millions of year and walk through the water between the tall rock walls and also visit the Grotta dei Frati or cave of the monks where they lived in this hermitage ages ago. [...]
Go hiking in a true Italian wilderness, take a luxury train trip back home, or get a taste of Nice, says Joanne O’Connor
Italian Bridal Inspiration in Gradara, Italy
“We wanted to show how to create a romantic countryside wedding in an unknown part of Italy. So we decided to go to [Gradara] a little “Borgo” in the hills of Le Marche. We wanted the day to be filled with soft, romantic colors inspired by nature.
As a preamble, there have been some general goals behind our decision making process. High on the list has been a desire to keep things as simple, free of stress and as cost effective as possible. Another guiding principle for us was to keep at a minimum the necessity of interacting with the Italian bureaucracy. If that isn’t already something you think about from past experience, once here, it probably will be.
Town or Country? – Location, Location, Location -Where do you want to call home? Our preference remains to live in a community of sufficient size to provide a stimulating cultural life, a variety of services such as dining choices, plus ready access to adequate health care and retains a sense of positive, common identity and life year-round.

One of our family ‘Summer rites’ is taking our daughter Costanza to Beato Sante on ‘Children Blessing Day’ on the first Sunday of August. While in the Marche – and especially during your stay in the province of Pesaro and Urbino (land of Rossini and Raphael) – you may want to visit the convent of Beato Sante (‘Blessed Sante’), close to Mombaroccio and not far from Sant’Angelo in Lizzola, in the hinterland of Pesaro: a real ‘patch of Heaven’.
The convent, built on top of Scotaneto hill – deriving its name from ‘scotani’ (Rhus cotinus, aka Eurasian smoketree, smoke tree or smoke bush) – dates back to the year 1223. It was one of the first Franciscan seats in the Marche region, erected while Saint Francis was still alive. Later on it underwent major changes and the convent we see today dates mostly back to the 17th century, apart from a few still preserved original parts. [...]
As I walk across the sunny piazza I think how easy it is to feel at home in Ascoli Piceno.
I’m still blurry-eyed when I arrive at the coffee bar, but without my having to say a word, a frothy cappuccino is placed before me, followed by a cornetto filled with a dab of sweet almond paste. The barista, Giuliano, smiles broadly and then chats about the happenings in the neighborhood.
Ascoli is the southernmost city in Le Marche, just across the border from Abruzzo. With 60,000 proud residents, it’s a lively place, with gorgeous travertine buildings and a large but lived-in historic center.
Ascoli is just one corner of Le Marche, a hidden region that 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.[...]
The city of Ascoli Piceno while easy to reach, is also far enough away from the main attractions of the Marche region to keep it off the general tourist track for many people, which is a shame because it’s a real jewel, with plenty to see and do
From the natural terraces of Montecarotto you can admire a wonderful landscape, that ranges from the Adriatic Sea to the Pre-Apennines mountains.

Mariano Pallottini's insight:
You enter the village trough Porta Marina, then you will arrive at Piazza del Comune, which replaced the XV century building and at S.Bartolomeo’s Abbey
Down to the plain there is fortified building dating back to XVI century.
Campofilone is well known for its gastronomic speciality, the popular “maccheroncini”, egg noodles hand-cut, dating back to XV century, even mentioned in Benedictine documents.
