Le Marche among "The 30 best beaches in Italy" by Chiara Ferragni | Le Marche another Italy | Scoop.it

Together with Greece and Spain, Italy has the most beautiful beaches in Europe. From north to south, our 8000-km coastline is unique and ever-changing, with beautiful golden sand beaches, white sand beaches and pebble beaches. The sea is incomparable, and crystal-clear, especially in the south. Whether untouched or really crowded, it doesn’t really matter: the time to hunt for the best beach comes regularly, every year, and we’re here to make the job easier for you. Have a look at the gallery, and let these wonderful images rock your heart and take you far, far away! [...]

Travel to Marche, Tuscany’s Lesser-Known Neighbor

Travel to Marche, Tuscany’s Lesser-Known Neighbor | Le Marche another Italy | Scoop.it

In central Italy, lies Marche. This little-known region borders Umbria, Emilia-Romagna, Lazio, and Tuscany. Perhaps due to its mountainous landscape and lack of a major airport, Marche has remained relatively unknown. Fly into Florence, rent a car, and set your GPS for about two hours east. The trip is not for the faint of heart: roads are as crooked as a politician and climb high into the tree-covered Apennine Mountains. A railway runs the length of the region along the Adriatic Sea, but to get to the heart of Marche, a car {and a bit of Italian} is necessary. [...]

Mariano Pallottini's insight:

If it is true that we do not snub mass tourism, who is to blame if bloggers continue to identify Le Marche such as the minor Tuscany?

Villa Buonaccorsi, and the Garden of Eden in Potenza Picena in Le Marche

Villa Buonaccorsi, and the Garden of Eden in Potenza Picena in Le Marche | Le Marche another Italy | Scoop.it

The beautiful Villa Buonaccorsi – in Potenza Picena, Macerata – is clearly marked by the talent of the illustrious 17th-century botanist, Siena-born Jesuit Giovanni Battista Ferrari(1584-1655): his teachings on the art of gardening seem to have inspire the creators of this wonderful park, overlooking the Adriatic Sea.

Famous for its many mythological statues and sculptures, fountains and obelisks, niches and water features, Villa Buonaccorsi’s overall structure dates back to the 18th century, with five terraces on the hillside crossed by laurel hedges, fishponds and geometric flowerbeds that look like colorful diamonds and stars.

Well, today I have such a treat for you as we’re off to an intimate wedding in Italy in Le Marche, one of my favourite regions. This is a destination wedding in every sense of the word – the gorgeous couple is from Finland and I too packed my bags and left London to be a wedding photographer in Italy once again. As you’ll see below, this was a beautiful Italian wedding and I didn’t stop smiling! [...]

 

Mariano Pallottini's insight:

Le Marche, in Central Italy is an ideal location for an Italian wedding. Less expensive than many other parts of Italy, Le Marche Region offers a perfect climate and an intimate atmosphere.

The historical hilltop villages or the coastal towns offer a number of choices for the location of the actual wedding ceremony. Stunning backdrop across the rolling hills, fascinating Sibillini mountains, gold sandy beaches.

Marche: Italy’s Hidden Region Waiting to be Explored

Marche: Italy’s Hidden Region Waiting to be Explored | Le Marche another Italy | Scoop.it

Hugging the central Adriatic coast, Marche is one of Italy’s most easily-accessible, yet least-visited regions. Saying that there’s a little bit of everything in this area isn’t too big of an exaggeration.

True to picturesque Italian stereotypes are the infinite fields of vines and sunflowers. Then, step it up a notch with hillside towns, such as El Cito, or hiking opportunities at Gola della Rossa national park. The later also boasts the Grotte di Frassassi, an extensive karst cave system with impressive sanctuary-chapels chiseled into the side of the rocky facades. For more underground fun, there’s the underground city of Camerano, complete with real-life ghost stories. And let’s not forget the 180 kilometers of coastline, which has 17 bandiere blu beaches (Europe’s top ranking for clean and accessible seasides). In the middle of the coastline is the region’s capital, Ancona, and its iconic Monte Conero. Other than this cliffy intermission, it’s a long stretch of red-and-white umbrellas perfect for sunbathing. [...]

Mariano Pallottini's insight:

Will it be the summer 2016 the one in which, finally, the Marche Region will be discovered by mass tourism? Hopefully yes, just only to not read more of these titles.

Following the popularity of last month's guide to unsung Italy, our experts have racked their brains to come up with another 21 beautiful spots you've probably not heard of. [...]

Mariano Pallottini's insight:

The Marche region, east of Umbria, is kinder to the pocket but can't quite match Tuscany when it comes to landscapes, handsome towns and first-rank culture - with a few exceptions. 

"A fine central piazza and celebrated food – notably olives – mark out the small town of Ascoli Piceno, close to the Adriatic coast," says Tim Jepson. "It's also within striking distance of the region's finest scenery, the Monte Sibillini National Park.
"Nearby Urbino, with its superb Ducal Palace, is larger and better known, but also remains relatively unvisited."

Discovering Civitanova Marche on the traces of Sibilla Aleramo one of the first Italy's first feminists

Discovering Civitanova Marche on the traces of Sibilla Aleramo one of the first Italy's first feminists | Le Marche another Italy | Scoop.it

Civitanova Marche is one of the modern ports aka beach towns on the Adriatic coast, but thanks to a classic Italian feminist I managed to get the feel of the city.

Mariano Pallottini's insight:

Highlight from the Italian Notes blog <<Sun, sun! What floods of dazzling sunshine! Everything seemed to sparkle in this land to which I had come. The sea was a broad expanse of silver, the sky an infinite smile resting upon my head, an infinite blue caress to one to whom the full beauty of the world was now revealed for the first time. What were the green fields of Brianza or of Piedmont? The northern valleys, or even the Alps, of which I had had glimpses in my early childhood, or lovely lakes, or beautiful gardens compared with a country so suffused in light, with those limitless spaces which stretched away above and before me, with that deep and ample inhalation of the air and of the sea? My lungs drank in with avidity all that free air, that salty breath. I would race up and down in the sun on the shore and face the waves as they curled on the sand. It seemed to me at each instant as though I were about to be transformed into one of those great white birds which I could see skimming along the surface of the water and vanishing on the horizon. Was I not like them?
Oh, the perfect happiness of that summer! Oh, my beautiful, wild youth!”

Drinking Italy: A glass of Marche | Bellavita Expo

Drinking Italy: A glass of Marche | Bellavita Expo | Le Marche another Italy | Scoop.it

There’s something musical about all of Italy’s regions; sometimes operatic, frequently dramatic, other times soulful and haunting. ‘Le Marche’ (Lay Mar-kay – in Italian just Marche) is a lullaby sung quietly but with real passion. As you travel across its rolling hills sandwiched between snow capped mountains and the vivid blue of the Adriatic, passing quiet villages with weathered walls, and market towns made from treacle shaded limestone along the way, you almost feel as if you’re being quietly hypnotized; if the landscape wasn’t like a shot of espresso for the eyes, that is.[...]

Mariano Pallottini's insight:
The Bellavita Blog, the blog of the "biggest Italian trade show in UK", dedicates an article to Le Marche. Apart some mistakes and one or two stereotypes, the article emphasizes the vocation of Le Marche to attract tourists in search of the original character of Italy (and Italians) specially in food and wine.
Do you agree with Dan Miles, the author, when she says: <<Marche is certainly one of Italy’s most unassuming regions>>?
Folklore, is still selling that much?
Are the foreign journalists exaggerating in the absence of other ideas or these communication formulas have been suggested by our operators in the various sectors?
Any comment is appreciated.

The Monti Sibillini Loop among the 10 great European road trips you must do in your lifetime by Telegraph

The Monti Sibillini Loop among the 10 great European road trips you must do in your lifetime by Telegraph | Le Marche another Italy | Scoop.it
Spoleto to Norcia and the Monti Sibillini loop, Italy

This short but spectacular day’s drive out of Spoleto is like a landscape opera in a prologue, three acts and an encore – the latter as you repeat the Spoleto-Norcia stretch on the return journey. The prologue is the gentle, summery, olive-clad plain surrounding the cultured Umbrian hilltown that is your starting point.

A three-mile-long tunnel gives the stagehands time to change the set for Act 1: the Valnerina, a cool, steep-sided green valley dotted with solid stone-built villages that have a vaguely Alpine feel. More bucolic, Act 2 begins with a sweeping vista across a fertile upland plain to the handsome walled town of Norcia, famous for its truffles, sausages and Benedictine monastery, with the Sibillini mountains looming behind.

It’s these that provide the drama of Act 3: the road begins to climb steeply up to Passo di Gualdo, where the Piano Grande, an upland valley famous for its lentils, and the rainbow tapestry painted by its wildflowers, suddenly appears in all its glory.

Starts: Spoleto – take road numbers: SS3, SS685, SS320 from Spoleto to Norcia, then local roads to Preci, Visso, Castelluccio and back to Norcia, returning to Spoleto on the same route.

Length: 101 miles.

Time: Allow just over three hours’ actual driving. Allowing for time for sightseeing and lunch, this makes for a perfect short day’s outing.

Best driven in: Late May or early June when the crocuses, fritillaries and lentils are in flower, turning Piano Grande into a carpet of shifting colours.

Top tip: At 1,452m, the village of Castelluccio is higher than Ben Nevis – so come prepared for snow, even late in the season, though the roads are generally well gritted.

Nearest airport: Perugia.

Ascoli Piceno among top 5 family friendly holidays in Italy for an expert blogger

Ascoli Piceno among top 5 family friendly holidays in Italy for an expert blogger | Le Marche another Italy | Scoop.it

Italy is a popular family holiday destination; pasta, pizza, sandy beaches, child-adoring locals and favourable weather, what more could you ask for? Well, quite a few of us parents need an injection of culture or something at least to engage our brains while we’re on holiday. Can you still amble through an Italian city admiring the art and architecture with young kids in tow or are you better off retiring to the seaside until your offspring are in their teens? Well, I think if you pick the right part of Italy you can definitely have your torta and eat it. So, here are my top five Italian holiday destinations for families with young children. [...]

Mariano Pallottini's insight:

Holiday With My Family is the blog of an expert Family traveller that put Ascoli Piceno on the top 5 family friendly holidays in Italy . Here how the choice has been justified:

4. Southern Marche
The delightful town of Ascoli Piceno in the south of Le Marche tends to be overlooked in favour of the big hitters of Tuscany and Umbria. However, it has a particularly spectacular Renaissance square, the car-free Piazza del Popolo where you can try the local delicacy of stuffed, deep fried olives. As with most historic Italian towns, Ascoli is perfect for aimless wandering although there’s plenty to occupy art and architecture enthusiasts should the kids allow it with an impressive art gallery, Pinacoteca Civica, and many fine buildings. Half an hour east of Ascoli sits the coast where mile after mile of sandy beach awaits you. The seaside isn’t in the same league as Puglia or Calabria but it is incredibly child friendly (plenty of toilets and little play areas). I wasn’t a fan of the regimented deck chairs when I first visited but the area has grown on me over the years. I particularly like the umbrellas which on some beaches come with a safety deposit box for your valuables, such an Italian touch! And I also love the way Italians take passeggiatas through the shallows on the beach as if on a high street, stopping to chat to friends and relations along the way. Heading back inland, the area is very rural so good-value and family-friendly agriturismos abound with delicious homemade food as standard.
