LAKES The only natural lake in the Marche, the Pilato, located inside the National Park of the Sibillini Mountains, has inspired a number of legends. Four man-made lakes can be found in the Chienti Valley, in the Pro-

vince of Macerata: the Delle Grazie Lake at Tolentino, the Borgiano Lake, also known as Caccamo, in Serrapetrona and Caldarola, the Polverina Lake near Camerino and Lake Fiastra in the foothills of the Sibillini Mountains. The Ascoli Piceno area holds Lake Talvacchia, while the Furlo basin lies thirty kilometres from Fano, in the Pesaro district. The magic of the water can be disco-

vered in perfect harmony with nature by canoeing (kneeling in an open boat), kayaking (in a covered boat which is rowed sitting down) or rafting over the rapids. Enthusiasts of “streaming�, an increasingly popular sport, can use double cords to descend into deep ravines that sometimes contain rushing streams.
