*Exact details to follow
We are very excited to have teamed up with our good friend Valerio Valentino on a couple of trips to his home region of Le Marche.
Le Marche is an often overlooked region of Italy that sees very limited tourism. We don't see any good reason for that! It is a magnificent region that is overloaded with natural beauty and natural resources. Le Marche boasts a world class wine region, the Adriatic coastline is home to many fine beaches and resorts to please the most discerning traveler as well as mountains, caves, truffles and unique cuisine. This is the real Italy! The backroads only to be explored with natives to this region.
This trip also includes Rome, where we will be staying in the historical center of this magnificent city where we will explore the significant sites of The Eternal City, including The Colosseum, Pantheon, Trevi Fountain, Piazza Navona and of course Vatican & Sistine Chapel tours. We will venture into the neighborhoods of Trestevre and The Jewish Ghetto.
Next on our trip will be 3 days in the Amalfi coast. Here we will call Sorrento home while we take day trips to Capri, Positano and possibly a shore lunch along the rugged coastline of Amalfi. From here we head to Le Marche region for our backroad explorations of this fine regions wineries, coastline and mountains as well as visits to ancient medieval towns such as Ascoli Piceno which boasts the world's largest travertine paved piazza in the world, Palazzo dei Capitani del Popolo.
We will be traveling this itinerary twice in 2023
