Discover history …

… and the poetry of Marche villages

During a trip to the Marche region, one thing will jump out at you: here, beauty and goodness go hand in everywhere you look, from grains of sand to bunches of grapes, from the cobblestones in the narrow, winding lanes to precious works of art. Walking through the streets of the picturesque villages, it will seem like you’re passing through every era of history in a single second: on one side there are Neolithic artifacts, on the other Ancient Greek and Roman archaeological sites, medieval towers, noble palaces, renaissance churches, and art nouveau villas. You’ll feel as if you’re being embraced by culture, the reassuring presence of the sea on the horizon, and the “Blue Mountains”, otherwise known as the Leopardi, in the distance. Discover the hidden treasures around every turn!

Pearls of art, history, and culture

During your holiday at Natural Village Resort, take time to celebrate the beauty of life: immerse yourself in nature near the Riviera del Conero, indulge in a sunset aperitif at Ristorante Seaside, and stop off to admire the stunning cities in the surrounding area.

Take a look at our tips so you don’t miss out on these gems:

Potenza Picena

The perfect marriage of culture and nature, history and modernity, home to churches, theatres, and noble baroque palaces that are resplendent with works of art. Palazzo Bonaccorsi is a prime example with its magnificent garden and water displays. Don’t miss the Pincio viewpoint with its view of the Sibillini mountains and the Riviera del Conero.

Ancona

An elegant maritime cultural hub which combines seaside charm with the history of an open-air museum. Don’t miss the Arch of Trajan, the gate to the Doric city, Ancona cathedral on the panoramic Guasco hill, the famous National Archaeological Museum of the Marche Region, and the Omero Tactile Museum. The port and Lazzaretto district are the heart of the region’s capital and boast a lively nightlife. And you simply must try the stockfish and brodetto all’anconetana fish soup! 

Loreto

A delightful village nestled between the hills of Conero with a view of the sea, it is also a popular place of pilgrimage. It is renowned for the Santuario della Santa Casa di Maria di Nazareth with the sculpture of the Black Madonna of Loreto made of Lebanon cedar, as well as works by Bramante. Don’t miss the picture gallery featuring exquisite works of art, the Vanvitelliano basilica and belltower, and the Piazza del Santuario. 

Sirolo

Ancient medieval village nestled in the Riviera del Conero, also known as the “Pearl of the Adriatic” because of its magnificent beaches and its sea that boasts both the Blue Flag and “quattro vele” or four sails from Legambiente. Don’t miss the Teatro Le Cave carved out of the pink stone of Conero, and the I Pini archaeological site preserving prehistoric remains of the Picenian civilisation.

Recanati

The village where poet and philosopher Leopardi was born, where poetry meets the famous Colli dell’Infinito. Don’t miss the renowned Palazzo Leopardi with a library boasting more than 20,000 books, using which he carried out his “mad and most desperate studies”, the Sabato del Villaggio square, the dimora di Silvia, the famous Colle dell’Infinito, Passero solitario tower, and Mount Tabor with the World Poetry and Culture Centre.

Numana

Picturesque fishing village with a historic centre that boasts a wealth of colourful houses and ancient steps known as “La Costarella”, which lead down to the wonderful beaches of fine sand and the Blue Flag sea. Don’t miss the Neolithic remains in the Antiquarium state archaeological museum and the precious, legendary Byzantine crucifix.

Macerata

Stunning Roman city rich in Neoclassic works of art and architecture, such as the Basilica della Misericordia decorated with frescoes, marble, and stuccoes, the lavish Lauro Rossi Theatre, Palazzo Buonaccorsi with the precious Sala dell’Eneide, the Church of Santa Maria delle Vergini featuring Tintoretto’s “L’Epifania”, and the Sferisterio Arena, which Pavarotti once called the most charming open-air theatre.

Osimo

A Roman village that is overflowing with history, magic, and secrets. You absolutely mustn’t miss the ancient city of Auxismus with its ancient Roman walls featuring the famous Fonte Magna and the acephalous (or headless) statues. You should also explore the historic centre with its stately palaces, churches, elegant cafés, the lavish theatre, and the lively streets of the centre that contrast with the silence of the subterranean city. The Piazza Dante and Cantinone caves are also well worth a visit.

Montelupone

A real gem that will make the hearts of lovers of history, fine art, and delicious cuisine beat faster. Nestled amidst the gently rolling hills of the Marche region, Montelupone was voted one of the most beautiful towns in Italy. As soon as you set foot inside its ancient walls, you’ll discover picturesque medieval lanes, the Palazzo del Podestà with the wonderful Pinacoteca Civica art gallery, and the Civic Tower featuring the town’s oldest coat of arms. And true gourmets simply mustn’t miss Montelupone’s artichoke festival in May and the festival of pizza in July!
