A visit to the Grotte di Frasassi, caves in the province of Ancona, will be a lasting memory to be cherished: 18 kilometers of stalactites and stalagmites and a giant cave called ”Grotta del Vento” (Cave of the Wind).

The region Marche is also an open-air museum for those who want to combine events and culture in the same holiday.

In town centers, often surrounded by walls, alternate historical commercial places, squares where Roman roads convey, ancient noble families’ palaces, churches and convents. 18 villages in Marche have been recognized “Borghi più belli d’Italia” (most beautiful villages in Italy). The Italian Touring Club has awarded 17 Orange Flags to villages particularly attentive to the protection of cultural heritage and of the environment.
