Maceratese” is well known for its broad beaches. There
the relationship between man and nature has always played a very
important role. The ancient fishermen villages have now become well
equipped sea resorts, ready to meet any need.
surrounded by beautiful scented pine forests. The city has roman origins
and was for centuries a very important trade commercial port and has
been protagonist of several historical events. Its elegant seafront is
so refined as to have been given the name of “salotto
del mare” (living room on the sea). It is a marvellous place to
have a relaxing walk among the beautiful trees, the blue sea and the
little and colourful fishermen houses.
Fishermen have never left Porto Recanati and together with them also the
respect for the ancient traditions and for the sea has stayed. The shore
is protected by wave breakers and the beach is pleasantly spotted with
colourful beach umbrellas. Lots are the resting places, games and sports
courts. Some lidos are provided with facilities to receive animals (dogs
in particular). Cyclists will be pleased instead with the many bike
paths set in fantastic sceneries rich in vegetation. The cultural and
folkloristic programme is so vast as to meet everybody’s interests.
Traditional and folkloristic feasts are in fact organized during the
summer and so it is for numberless cultural events. The city also counts
lots of renown clubs. An intense theatrical season is on show in the
Arena Gigli (named after the famous tenor born in the city).
Porto Potenza Picena is a roman city as well. It is
overlooked by a seventeenth century tower that seems to watch over the
quiet holidays of the tourists. Broad sandy beaches alternate with
cliffs and pebbled areas. All is surrounded by lidos, green areas, sport
courts and excellent restaurants and hotels. A small tourist port has
been specially equipped to welcome sailing boat lovers. The historic
centre of the city preserves little treasures of history and art.
The lively centre of Civitanova Marche
is on the border of Costa
Maceratese. It is provided with two ports, one of which commercial,
the other entirely reserved to tourists. The city boasts 8km of beaches.
The city developed from a small centre called “Porto Civitanova”
that was first founded from the people of Civitanova Alta to have a
passageway to the sea. The two villages where then united under the same
Council (1938) and took the present name of “Civitanova Marche”. The
city has managed to strengthen both the intense trading activity and the
everlasting maritime tradition. Thanks to the structures and tourist
facilities Civitanova Marche is the place to stay and spend an holiday
where also the cultural, historical and sports aspects are cared for.
