In putting this site together I realized that a few gorgeous photos of the Marche were essential in helping to convey the beauty of le Marche.
My attempts at photography were really not going to be up to it, it needed something professional. Thanks to the help of Fabio Fava, Cristina and Jim DeLutes I am able to share with you some great photos.
Words can only go so far in describing the wonderful Marches region of Italy; the photos manage to accomplish the rest.
The scenery of the Marches is a microcosm of the best that Italy has to offer. Le Marche has some of the most memorable hill towns and perfectly preserved medieval villages to be found anywhere in Italy - many of the villages (places like Corinaldo) are rated among the loveliest in Italy.
The beaches, particularly the Conero beaches, are among Italy’s best beaches and the rolling hills of the interior are in many ways similar to those of Tuscany.
Enjoy the photos…
This incredible church is found in a huge cavern. For more details click here.
Ascoli Piceno (click for more) is definitely one of Italy's best kept secrets.
The photos above show the countryside near gorgeous Urbino.
San Marino, pictured above, is actually an independent country although it is right in the middle of Le Marche.

These hilly streets might be lovely to look at but they aren't so great when you only have little legs!
