Riviera delle Palme
of settings characterizes Marche coastline. This is why a lot of
surprising places are at complete disposal of tourists. Different worlds
coexist within a short distance from each other.
delle Palme thanks to a
particular climate is characterized by a vegetation almost unique in the
area. The ancient city of Cupramarittima is a clear example with its
sandy beach surrounded by pine forests and palm groves.
The sea presents low waters near the coastline and it is so the safer
place to be with children. The medieval village is spread on the hill
that fronts the beach. Its small alleys are wonderful for their openings
on the blue sea.
is right on the 43° parallel. The artistic treasures kept in the city
attract tourist that would have gone just for the fascinating broad
sandy beaches enclosed in palm groves and orange trees. The city has
been nicknamed “Pearl of the Adriatic” since a long time ago.
The beautiful place boasts ancient origins (the picturesque medieval
centre still stands as an evidence). The ancient port has earned the
city an important position in the economic panorama of the region. The
first tourists discovered the city in the early 1600.
The famous visitors (the famous musician Franz Liszt among the others)
first appreciated the down to earth organization of the place, the warm
climate, the golden beach and the marvellous sights of the sea, of the
beautiful palm trees and of the ancient historic ruins.
The eye could then be absorbed by the hilly landscape that stretches and
meets the Sibillini mountain chain at the horizon. Going South palm
trees wisely adorn the sea front of San
Benedetto del Tronto.
There the thin and white sand has attracted visitors since 1800. Since
then the famous resort has embellished its outlook and has improved its
tourist facilities to better welcome visitors.
Despite the bike paths and the well equipped and modern lidos the magic
atmosphere of century old traditions still persists. They can still be
read from the wrinkles on the sun burnt fishermen faces and from the
Liberty villas on the seafront.
A taste of tradition is given by the fish Brodetto, ancient local
delicacy. Golden beaches, lush palm trees, and oleanders in full bloom
characterize the landscape as far as Porto D’Ascoli.
The city set on the border between Marche and Abruzzo is also on the
skirts of this marvellous Riviera that Nature has made so unexpectedly
beautiful and that man is carefully taking care of.
