Due to its exceptional Renaissance architecture, Urbino has been an UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1998.
Besides Lourdes, Loreto is one of the most important pilgrimage destinations in Europe.
Many Marche villages possess small museums, which inform the visitors about the local history.
Excellent wines, like the Verdicchio di Castelli di Jesi, the Rosso Conero or the Offida Pecorino, to name just a few, belong to the culinary delights of the Marche. The same counts for the black truffles, which are lifted in the northern Marche region, near Acqualagna.
Another speciality, the Olive all’ascolana, comes from Ascoli Picena: breaded and deep-fried olives stuffed with meat.
In the summer season there are numerous charming village fairs and markets, where local delicacies are offered.
Small restaurants, Osterie and Agriturismi (farmhouses offering accommodation and local food) enchant the guests with excellent dishes made of typical local products.
