Hidden treasures to be found in beautiful areas of the Marche interior are indicated by the “Bandiera Arancione” (“Orange Flag”, badge of tourist and environmental excellence).
They include Montelupone and Montecassiano, whose municipalities border the territory of Recanati.
Others in the province of Macerata to have obtained this recognition are Urbisaglia (a place of archaeological interest, known as “Urbs Salvia” in the Republican epoque) and Sarnano, a spa town and popular mountain resort.
Montecassiano, Montelupone and Sarnano are also certified members of the “
I Borghi più belli d’Italia” (“The most beautiful villages in Italy”), along with
Esanatoglia, Visso, Treia, San Ginesio and Matelica in the Province of Macerata.
Above all we recommend a visit to Cingoli, “Balcone delle Marche” (“Balcony of the Marches”), an archit ecturally harmonious city recognized for the superb quality of its public and private buildings.
Loreto and Recanati itself stand out as Cities of Art.
