Its territory

Our region is known for its hills and its mountains. Embracing the eastern side of the Umbria Marche Appennines, it spreads for miles through rolling countryside before plunging into the crystalline waters of the Adriatic, renowned for its long stretches of fine sandy beaches which fringe the entire coastline.

Scattered around this magnificent natural beauty are the coastal towns of Gabicce, Pesaro, Fano, Senigallia, Ancona, Numana, Porto San Giorgio, and San Benedetto del Tronto, all ideal destinations for those who want to relax and rejuvenate in the luxurious sea.

For unspoiled nature, the Conero Riviera offers stunning scenery and truly wild lands. A unique wonder in a stunning setting surrounded by nature and a blue sea that blends with the sky. It is reachable only by sea or by paths immersed in the lush green of Mediterranean vegetation.

The region is home to numerous national, regional and WWF oases ready to be discovered. Among these, the parks of Monti Sibillini and Laga stand out, which offer a unique display between myths, legends, and wonderful landscapes.

A generous land

Bordered to the east by the Adriatic Sea, and Repubblica di San Marino to the north, Le Marche shares borders with four other regions: Emilia Romagna (province of Rimini) to the north, Umbria (province of Perugia) to the west, Lazio (province of Rieti) to the south west, and Abruzzo (province of Teramo) to the south. The provinces are Ancona (capital), Ascoli Piceno, Fermo, Macerata, and Pesaro Urbino.

This region is abundant in typical Mediterranean crops such as olives and grapes. Its main products include the tender Ascolana olive, typically known for its fried version stuffed with meat, and the renowned Cartoceto olive oil. The top wines from Le Marche include the Rosso Piceno Superiore and the highly aromatic Rosso Conero Riserva. Other notable varieties include Pinot Nero, Lacrima di Morro, and Vernaccia Nera, which is used to produce the sparkling DOCG wine Vernaccia di Serrapetrona. Le Marche is also known as a white wine region, highlighting the diversity of the region’s wine production. The leading white varieties here are Trebbiano, Falerio, and the DOCGs Verdicchio dei Castelli di Jesi and Verdicchio di Matelica, which are perfect accompaniments for Brodetto di Pesce, a rich local seafood stew.

In an agricultural region like Le Marche, there is a wide selection of cheeses available. Each area of the territory boasts its type of cheese, created using processes that have been handed down over many generations. The classic Pecorino and the tasty Formaggio di Fossa are among the cheeses produced all over Le Marche. The Montefeltro region also produces Caciotta d’Urbino, which was much loved by the artist Michelangelo Buonarroti.

Other noteworthy cheeses include Formaggio Ubriaco al Vino Rosso, which is immersed and matured in red wine. This cheese is typical of the Ancona and Macerata provinces and uses Lacrima di Morro d’Alba and Vernaccia di Serrapetrona wines, respectively.
