The secret of the attractiveness of Le Marche region lays in the variety of landscapes Le Marche can offer: from the turquoise Adriatic Sea to the high Apennine mountains. One of the Marches’ greatest qualities is that this region is not one of mass tourism’s favourite destinations, offering an enriching human scale experience within the surrounding of its spectacular natural environment.
Central Italy has much more to offer than just the fascinating cities of Siena or Florence and the Tuscan countryside around them. People are now discovering the eastern region of central Italy, Le Marche which now, with daily direct flights from London Stansted to Ancona's Airport, has become even easier to reach.
Whether you are searching for masterpieces of architecture or art, walk across wild suggestive mountains, fish in a Mediterranean port or lay quietly on a lovely beach, the Marche has enough to offer and you will rarely have to run away from noisy tourists.
The happy few who have already discovered Le Marche predict that it will become ‘the new Tuscany’ or ‘the next Umbria’ but Le Marche has its own unique combination of qualities which provide for an unforgettable experience. The varied and seductive marchegiani landscapes range from the rugged Montefeltro hills of northern Marche, down through golden wheat fields and green hills topped by medieval villages, to the dramatic peaks of the Monti Sibillini – the highest and most beautiful stretch of the Apennines.
The Le Marche region is fringed with the golden beaches of the Adriatic coast. Marche’s history encompasses ancient Romans, renaissance courtiers, warring dukes and noble tribes like the Piceni. Today the Marches boasts two of Italy’s premier opera festivals, at Macerata and Pésaro.
Senigallia's fascination and fame are due to its sea and its blond and boundless beach: this is the reason why it is known as the "velvet beach". Senigallia or Sinigaglia is a comune and port town on Italy's Adriatic coast, 25 km by rail north of Ancona, in the Marche region, province of Ancona. The small port is formed by the lower reaches of the Misa, a stream which flows through the town between embankments constructed of Istrian marble.
The original name of the town was Montalboddo, then in the 1881 the name was changed in Ostra, like the ancient roman city located near the modern town of Ostra.
Ostra is a town and commune of Marche, Italy, near the modern Ostra Vetere, south-east of Senigallia. The origins of Ostra are lost in a remote past full of legends and traditions, mystery and folklore, facts and discoveries. The fact that until 1881 the town was called Montalboddo or Monte Bodio certainly gives rise to ambiguity. According to legend, after the battle in 410 AD when the town was destroyed by the Visigoths, the population of Ostra fled to the hills owned by the citizen Bodio, stayed there and built a new village (hence the name Monte Bodio). Besides legend, excavations and discoveries confirm, however, that the ancient Monte Bodio in fact descended from an Roman Municipium called Ostra, and once the authenticity of the artefacts had been ascertained, the town council decided, at the end of the XIX° century, to give the town back its noble, original name: Ostra. The signs left by history are a few centuries more recent, dating back to medieval times when written documentation showed that Ostra (or rather, Monte Bodio) belonged to the Exarcate of Ravenna.
