Montelupone artichoke Festival 5-6 May 2012
Share

How many places can boast a view of a sunrise over the sea, a view of snow-capped mountains and a lazy sunset of rolling green hills that seemingly go on forever? My guess is not many; but come to hinterland area around Montelupone in Le Marche and you got all that plus a cute little ancient hilltop town to roam around in. If you time it right, you could be roaming around while they celebrate their annual artichoke festival.
Le Marche has everything. Le Marche easily competes as a prime destination rather than a secondary alternative. All those romantic ideas you have of Italy, well… Le Marche does a really good job at providing them.
Montelupone is a small, walled town high above the farms that supply it with all the produce it needs. Naturally the local Monteluponese artichokes are what makes this town a little more distinctive to similar towns in the area. Here they’ve been growing them for generations and were one of the first towns in Italy to celebrate them, this being the 51th sagra and usually celebrated on one of the first weekends of May.
