MARCHE T

he typical feature of the landscape of the Marche is a series of rolling hills that gradually reach the coast. The Marche countryside offers alternation of

colors that are created by the various crops, orchards and cereal monocultures that stretch along the sloping walls of the hills. The rural aspect of the hills is given by the cultivation of wheat, grapes, and olives. It is possible to see old villas and country mansions, typical of the traditional aspect of the Marche region to immerge in a real rural atmosphere. Immersed in this quiet landscape, ancient towns live in a continuum between past, present and future, that gives them an elegant look.
