No place is far away
Starting from our farmhouse with swimming pool in Montecarotto in the Marche region, you can visit the main cities and venture into the suggestive Frasassi caves:
Giacomo Leopardi and Recanati
In the immediate vicinity of the Riviera del Conero, on the top of a hill, stands Recanati which gave birth to the poet Giacomo Leopardi and Beniamino Gigli. You can visit the Leopardi places, the Palazzo, the adjoining library which has more than 12000 volumes. But also the "de l'Infinito" hill, which is overlooked by so much, the remains of the ancient tower of S. Agostino which inspired the "lone sparrow" and the "Saturday of the Village" pitch.
With its Sferisterio arena, in the summer months it offers a wonderful backdrop for a prestigious opera season under the starry sky.
The Frasassi Caves
About 25 km from Montecarotto, those caves form an underground path of great charm. An inverted way made of suggestive environments full of extraordinary concretions, where silence is broken only by the dripping of water drops that makes the complex alive and in constant evolution. The Caves are open to the public throughout the year.
Declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site, it is one of the capitals of the Italian Renaissance. Every corner of this city has something to tell about its past, in particular the refined culture that has formed in this context. The monument that best represents Urbino and the Palazzo Ducale with the annexed National Gallery of the Marche.
Famous for being the seat of the Basilica of the Holy House, one of the most important and ancient pilgrimage sanctuaries in the Catholic world which houses the famous relic of the Holy House where, according to tradition, the Virgin Mary was born and lived and where she received the announcement of the miraculous birth of Jesus.
The panorama that can be enjoyed can reach from the sea to the mountains.
