Adriatic Coast or Rural Wedding in Italy – A wedding in Le Marche is a good option for those who appreciate the quieter parts of Italy. It has lovely hilltop towns and some of the most beautiful coastline in Italy. The region is rich with lovely hilltop towns and natural countryside with much woodland making a great setting for a rural wedding in Italy.
From white-pebble beaches and cliff-backed Adriatic bays to medieval hill towns and snow-capped peaks, Le Marche is one of Italy’s least-known treasures.
Sandwiched between the Apennines and the Adriatic coast, this hilly region boasts a string of exquisite provincial towns. Chief among them is Urbino, whose beautifully preserved centro storico (historic centre) recalls its heyday as a Renaissance cultural centre and birthplace of the artist Raphael. Ascoli Piceno is another highlight, a refined, animated town famous for its fantastic food. Music fans should make a beeline for Macerata, whose hilltop centre rings to the sound of opera each summer.
In the region’s western reaches, and bleeding over into neighbouring Umbria, the wild Parco Nazionale dei Monti Sibillini boasts dramatic mountain scenery and thrilling outdoor pursuits
With fabulous sea views and some great wedding venue options this is a great region for a destination wedding in Italy.
