Rescooped by Elizabeth Paterson from Le Marche another Italy!

Once LE MARCHE never Back

Once LE MARCHE never Back | Wedding |

We discovered the Le Marche region on our last trip to Italy and immediately knew we would come back.
The region lies on the eastern side of central Italy, between the Adiatric Sea and high Apennine mountains and much of it remains unspoilt by the ravages of mass tourism.
Many compare it to Tuscany 20-30 years ago with it's lavender fields, sunflower fields and vineyards spread across hills like a patchwork quilt on an unmade
bed. What makes it so appealing however is that statistics show that Le Marche had just 7 percent as many visits by foreigners as Tuscany.
Urbino was our first stop, a charming small hilltop renaissance town that looks much the same as it did in the 15th century.
Strolling around the town we looked int this window and saw students learning the craft of restoration of antiquities.
As much as I enjoy the art and culture of this town I also enjoy their simple lifestyle.
Pesaro is an appealing seaside town with good shops, fine beaches and great fish.
We only had a couple of hours to spend but I was thrilled with what we saw. First thing was this beautiful smiling lady with her pretty in pink daughters who was about to get married.
Than across the Piazza we saw another couple in wedding attire getting their pictures taken. September must be a big month for weddings, we saw five different wedding parties on this trip.
Lunch was perfect.
Le Marche is to be continued.
