Best in Travel 2020
Did you know that Lonely Planet region has chosen Le Marche as number 2 of the Best in Travel 2020?
“It seems that the underdog is finally ready to be in the spotlight. Although the leading role usually goes to his superstar neighbor Tuscany, the Le Marche region in Italy has an equally wide repertoire. It has enchanting hilltop towns and fantastic food festivals. Combined with beautiful Renaissance palaces, winding landscapes and inviting beaches. All this with the bonus that the sights are much less known. In 2020 all spotlights will be focused on Urbino, the most picturesque city in Le Marche. Urbino celebrates the 500th anniversary of the death of the great Renaissance painter - and the successful local boy - Raphael."
