Ascoli Piceno Area...
Travellers who want the best of central Italy are now heading for Le Marche, It is pronounced "lay markay", is plural (Le Marche) and is sometimes translated into English as "The Marches".
The region lies on the eastern side of central Italy, between the Adriatic Sea and the high Apennine mountains and much of it remains unspoilt by the ravages of mass tourism.
The Adriatic coast has been a favorite for "seaside" holiday makers for decades; but few venture far from the beaches. However inland, perhaps more so than anywhere else in central Italy, you will find places where time really has stood still.
Even during the peak holiday season, between mid-July to mid-August, it is rarely overcrowded and up in Castelfiorito, although it can be very hot, the mountain breezes are usually cooling.
May, June and September are the ideal months to tour Le Marche if you can't take the heat; the landscape is clothed in spring green or the first tints of autumn, any rain tends towards brief showers rather than endless drizzle. The mountain meadows are unforgettable in the spring with ever changing carpets of alpine flowers including orchids and the brilliant blue gentian.
The wettest seasons are mid-February to mid-April and mid-October to mid-December when grey mist and rain can set in up in the mountains. It can also be cold in mid-winter, when the sun sets, but the charmed position of Castelfiorito means that it rarely has gloomy days.
What to do in Le Marche
Many people who come to Le Marche are looking for a taste of the "real" Italy, and a region that is welcoming to visitors.
Whether you want to trek across wild uncharted mountains, admire masterpieces of Renaissance art and architecture, or hunt out the best of the catch in a Mediterranean fishing port, Le Marche has enough to keep you busy.
