Rome, Milan, Venice, Florence or Naples..Everyone knows the most famous italian city. And what about Tuscany or Liguria? Sicily or Puglia? But every time I’ve been asked where I am from, the most of the people when I say that I am from Ancona, in Le Marche, they look at me with such a thinking face..trying to figure out where the hell Ancona could be. So I start with a sort of geographical collocation, something like “southern than Bologna..Opposite of Rome and in front of Croatia”. But still I wonder why Le Marche is not as well know as Tuscany. Let me try to present my fabulous region, Le Marche.
Le Marche, everything in one region.
As you can see the name is in a plural form: that’s because you can find here all aspect of Italy within the same region! From mountain where you can go skiing in the winter, to gentle hills, from valley to ancient villages, from sandy and log beaches to rocky and hidden one’s. Seriously, you can experience all this places (and actually even much more than this) all in the same region, just few kilometers away one from each other! I was born in Senigallia, one of the summer most known shore in Le Marche.
Summer Jamboree, Senigallia
[2-10 August 2014] During summer, Senigallia host musical events, festival, beach games.. and the most known event is fur sure the Summer Jamboree: since year 2000 this event attracts every year thousand of guests from all over the world. The Summer Jamboree is a musical festival all based on ’40 and ’50 style, where you can enjoy music, great artists, vintage, cars, dance, and even try some ’40 hairdressing style! This event definitely worth a visit!! Le Marche are able to surprise you if you are willing to explore the region. I would suggest you to do it during spring or summer season, where all the places gets full of events and the long daylight and warm brings more happiness and colors everywhere. Ancona, the capital city of the region, is a surprising small city and harbour dominated by the Conero mountain. I love the seaboard of Ancona, overlooking the Adriatic sea with its sparkling lights. Ancona is a portual city, there you can enjoy a visit on its historical monuments and churches, a day of shopping along the city centre, or a tasty dinner in one of the famous typical restaurant and eat brodetto or stoccafisso or climbing the Mount Conero and take a rest in a typical agritourism with a glass of Rosso Conero. Are you becoming curious about Le Marche, isn’t it? Keep following me, I will love to inspire your next trip in Italy!
