DISCOVER LE MARCHE - Tuscany and Umbria are on the western edge of this lovely, lesser-known area of Italy with Romagna and Abruzzo to the North and South. Le Marche is said to encompass “all of Italy in the one state”. The gentle coast of the Adriatic Sea, rich in seafoods, rises through cultivated hills and valleys, equally rich in olives, vines, fruit-trees and herds of animals, to the heights of the Appennine mountains. Le Marche has a long history of ‘la buona tavola’ – good food and good wine. The history of its people is equally long: This rich heritage gave inspiration to later generations of artists, musicians, writers and architects whose genius is still alive in the places where they lived and worked. And work today. The symbol of the area is the woodpecker, il Picchio, which was the totem of the ancient Picenes, who the story goes, followed this little bird to discover their new land, Le Marche. 8 days.
