Montelparo: Le Marche off the beaten path
Share

Written by : Mariano Pallottini| 0 | Travel

“All of Italy in one region’’ is a very common description of Le Marche. This as yet barely known and hence unspoilt part of Italy is a veritable treasure chest of surprises. The countryside rolls from the majestic Gran Sasso and Sibilline mountains through wonderfully green and fertile hills and valleys to a superb coastline of Blue Flag standard sandy beaches. Montelparo is midway between these mountains and the coast which makes it a perfect location to visit the whole region. It is typical of the many hilltop towns; houses built of the beautiful honey coloured bricks and stones tumble down the hillside. The historic centre with its quaint cobbled streets is enticing with many of its buildings dating back to the 13th century. The town has one of only two museums in Italy dedicated to a unique collection of antique bicycles, carts, hand carts and trolleys used by local craftsmen and women
