Geographically the region Marche consists of a hilly landscape between the Apennines and the Adriatic coast. The hightest point in Marche is the Mountain Vettore (Monte Vettore) with approximately 2476 meters, the Monte Vettore makes part of the Sibillini mountains. The Marche borders in the north to Emilia-Romagna, in the west to Tuscany (Toscana) and Umbria, and in the south to the region Abruzzo.


Sightseeing

The western part of the region are long mountain ranges and the eastern part are long sandy beaches of coastal section. For example in Conero you will find a very rare cliff of white limestone, which has small gaps, where over time very beautiful small beaches has been formed.

A big part of the major cities and towns of Marche are located near the coast, the inland region is predominantly agricultural used. The montains in the western part of the region consists of limestone with beautiful canyons and caves which are worth a visit.


Because of the 180 km long coastline, this region is well known and a very popular destination for beach tourists, which visit places with distinctive nightlife like Senigallia, Pesaro, Gabicce Mare or San Benedetto del Tronto. But there are also very nice places with less tourism and which are designed for something more calm.
