Would you like to experience authentic, unspoilt Italy? Instead of following the throng of tourists to Rome and Tuscany why not join us to uncover the less well trodden parts of the ‘Bel Paese’ and uncover some hidden gems that are just waiting to be discovered here in Le Marche, Italy’s best-kept secret.
Le Marche, an area as captivating as any you will find in Italy, remains one of the very few places which has escaped mass tourism despite its beauty and diversity. The Italians describe it as ‘all of Italy in one region’. With its medieval hilltop towns full of art and culture, amazing coastline with hidden beaches, patchwork quilt countryside, stunning mountain ranges within three national parks and a growing number of vineyards which are now getting attention on the international stage – it really is a secret slice of Italy.
