a region of central Italy as wonderful as it is unusual for its diversity of landscape and territory: cliffs and caves that alternate with unforgettable beaches, mountains and hills that evoke history, tradition, art. The territory is mainly hilly and mountainous; the Adriatic coast has low and sandy beaches, bathed by crystal clear water. For those who love extreme nature, the Conero Riviera offers suggestive scenarios and still wild strips, sometimes reachable only by sea or among paths cut out in the green of the Mediterranean scrub. There are numerous national and regional parks and WWF oases to discover.
Ancona, overlooking the Adriatic Sea, has one of the major Italian ports. City of art rich in monuments and with 2,400 years of history, it is one of the main economic centers of the region, as well as its main urban center in terms of size and population. Stretching out towards the sea, the city stands on a bent elbow-shaped promontory, which protects the largest natural harbor in the central Adriatic. Urbino deserves to be mentioned: it was one of the most important centers of the Italian Renaissance, of which it fully preserves the architectural heritage. Its historical center has been a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1998.
The Marche region is made up of 5 provinces and 236 municipalities. The provinces are Ancora, Ascoli Piceno, Fermo, Macerata and Pesaro and Urbino.
