Le Marche is a central region of the 20 regions of Italy.

The region is divided into five provinces; Pesaro and Urbino, Ancota, Macerata, Fermo, and Ascoli Piceno. The Marche region boasts of impressive Adriatic beaches, ancient towns on hilltops or deep between rolling farmland, and charming little towns with little to no tourists. The capital city is Ancona.

The Renaissance building contains the Gelleria Nazionale delle Marche, which houses some of the most important collections of Renaissance art in the world, including works by Santi, Van Wassenhove, Melozza da Forli, Raphael, and other 15th century artists.

Palazzo Pianetti - Palazzo Pianetti, or Pianetti Tesei, is a Rococo palace based on designs of Cardolo Maria Pianetti. The interior is intricately decorated with stucco and paint. The palace and its adjacent building are also used as a museum and exhibition site. The civic picture gallery or Pinacoteca Civica in the adjacent building houses a collection of works by Lorenzo Lotto, and other paintings by Cristoforo Roncalli, Giacomo del Po, Antonio Sarti, Domenico Valeri, and other artists.

Le March Beaches - The region boasts of 180 kilometres of Adriatic coastline, and enough resorts for even the most finicky travellers to find a place to appreciate and enjoy. The two types of beaches in resort are as follows; one type is the larger resorts with many hotels, a lively atmosphere, and a lot of other tourists, such as Gabicce Mare, Senigallia, and San Benedetto del Tronto; the other type involves smaller resorts, a bit less spectacular but also less crowded beaches.

How to get around within Le Marche

The Italian State Railways has two main lines in the region; the Milan-Bari line connects most of the seaside resorts, while the trans-Italy Ancona-Rome line serves the large towns in the central area. The rest of Le Marche relies on a network of private bus services. These buses operate on a specific schedule and route, designed to cater to students, but can also be utilised by other locals and tourists. Taxi service is also available, but quite expensive. For travellers who would rather not spend time and effort transferring lines (though it can be a rewarding and wonderful experience) are advised to rent cars instead.
