Touring in Italy
Just the mention of the word Italy conjures up images of art, history, romance, good food and wine and, of course, sunshine, blue skies and beautiful landscapes. Italy has so much to offer and is, unsurprisingly, one of the most popular tourist destinations in the world. The question is where to start….
A road trip to Italy
To see more, a road trip in Italy would seem the best way visiting different locations to give you true immersion in everything Italy has to offer whilst touring through different provinces of the Bel Paese.
Whether your trip involves touring from Rome to Venice, driving along the beautiful east coast all the way down to Puglia or leaving the crowds behind in Tuscany, why not explore the true heart of Italy in Le Marche as part of you Italy trip?
Le Marche is the perfect antidote to the heaving crowds of Rome, with it’s true authenticity of the Italian way of life centered around respect for the terrain and the produce it offers. You’ll have the chance to explore medieval hill-top towns in unbelievable countryside whilst enjoying the charm and hospitality of local people going about their daily lives away from mass tourism.
In Le Marche you can expect to uncover some real hidden gems such as the Macerata opera festival set in a roman amphitheatre, art in abundance in cathedrals and churches set around the piazza in Ascoli Piceno, or learn more about the pre-roman culture of the Piceni tribes that are native to the area. Or, of course, just take a day off and laze by our infinity-edge pool.
