Questa è la parte inerente la nostra regione dell’articolo pubblicato da The Guardian che suggerisce le mete per le vacanze 2016. Le Marche figurano insieme a città di grande attrattiva turistica come Rio de Janeiro, Dublino, Bordeaux , Copenhagen, Stoccolma e altre destinazioni sparse per il mondo. Unica altra zona italiana indicata è quella del Chianti. Il quotidiano inglese mette in evidenza le qualità e le offerte della nostra regione, citando anche Macerata, Morrovalle, Urbino e Numana. Di seguito riportiamo in originale il pezzo sulle Marche e il link dell’articolo completo.
Le Marche, Italy…Beaches and art without the crowds
Le Marche, a region halfway up the eastern side of Italy’s boot, is slowly being discovered by Brits: visitor numbers were up 24% in the year to August, though from a very low base. And tourists are staying there longer – enjoying the region’s beaches, hilltop villages, art-filled towns and great outdoors for their own sake, rather than making a quick foray from Umbria or Abruzzo.
Hospitality in Le Marche used to be in staid business hotels or pack-’em-in beachside billets, with (uninspiring) half-board compulsory in summer. But a younger generation has taken the British concept of bed-and-breakfast to their hearts.
La Maison Jujube (doubles from €69 B&B) is in a 14th-century village house in Morrovalle, between the sea and the old university city of Macerata, with two bedrooms, a walled garden and great views. Less than an hour away is one of Italy’s best beaches, spectacular Due Sorelle, beneath white cliffs and accessible by boat from the harbour at Numana.
Inland, medieval Urbino is a must-see for the renaissance art in its Palazzo Ducale, but fans of more modern art can put together a great tour of contemporary galleries, from Il Conventino in tiny Monteciccardo, to modern sculpture inside a 15th-century tower in Cagli.
