Macerata is a bustling hilltown with a hiking paradise and a popular seaside round the corner. But few tourists have discovered this well kept secret.
Macerata is only a short drive away from Urbino. In charm and beauty it measures up to the popular hilltowns in Tuscany and Umbria. And there’s a hiking paradise and a popular seaside round the corner in Sibillini Mountains and Senigallia. Yet there are virtually no foreign tourists in this provincial capital. So even if Macerata is a bustling city with a population 43.000 it still qualifies as undiscovered Marche.
