Regione Marche

Overlooking the Adriatic Sea in the heart of Italy, with slightly more than a million and a half inhabitants spread among its five provinces of Ancona, capital city, Pesaro Urbino, Macerata, Fermo and Ascoli Piceno, The Marche, which has always been Italy’s “Gateway to the East”, is the country’s only region with a plural name and which is home to very different environments and landscapes. The Marche are truly a place to discover for the many environmental landscapes, the variety of natural and artistic beauties which can all be found in a space just under 10,000 squared km. Featuring the mountains of the Apennine chain, which gently slope towards the sea along parallel valleys, the region is set apart by its rare beauty and noteworthy figures such as Giacomo Leopardi, Raffaello from Urbino, Giovan Battista Pergolesi, Gioachino Rossini, Gaspare Spontini, Father Matteo Ricci, Fredrick II of Swabia, all of whom were born here.
