EXCITING AND FUN ART AND CULTURE HOLIDAYS IN MARCHE

Ostuni città bianca

Art and culture holidays in Marche are a fun and exciting way to explore the central region of Italy. The region's art and culture dates back to the time of Etruscans and the Roman era.

Le Marche is home to stunning pieces of Renaissance art, impressive museums, magnificent architecture and exciting carnivals.

The region of Le Marche has preserved much of its historical past. Urbino is one of the region's principal towns and is where Duke Federico of Montefeltro set up his renowned court in the latter half of the 15th Century. The magnificent Palazzo Ducale or Ducale Palace displays exquisite paintings by Piero della Francesca, and a beautiful portrait by Raphael. The palace also houses fascinating Roman artifacts. Further south is Ascoli Piceno, where many painters and sculptors lived.

You will find works from Guercino, Crivelli, Titian, Guido Reni, and Tintoretto. Art and culture holidays in Marche would be incomplete without exploring the many cultural events such as Urbino Festa del Duca, which is a carnival in honour of Duke Federico. The festival takes place on the third Sunday in August. Another cultural event is the always popular Rossini Opera Festival. It is held in Pesaro, and usually takes place in August. In July and August, the town of Macerata hosts an open air opera in the outstanding Sferisterio arena, which includes productions of Puccini's La Bohème and Verdi's Rigoletto. For lovers of jazz, the Ancona Jazz Festival is not to be missed.
