Reasons to come and stay…

 

Our favourite beach, October 2012. It is busier than this in the summer but still not too bad!

Civitella, fortress town. Perched on a steep hill and great for a wander. They hold an artisans market once a month and have some great arts events each summer.

The Piazza del Popolo in Ascoli Piceno

Piazza Arringo, Ascoli Piceno with the Duomo in the background. The mosaics in the crypt are amazing!

Il Vallone, Monte Piselli. The walk up here to il Laghetto and round over Monte Piselli is a beautiful 3-4 hour walk.

Il Laghetto on Monte Piselli in it’s summer guise. There is more water in winter.

Built into the cliff a little way from Il Roccolo, l’Eremo di san Marco is a great place to visit-as long as you are OK with heights!

Cafe Meletti in the Piazza del Popolo, Ascoli Piceno.

This stunning view is on the walk in to the Gola d’Infernaccio. It is a relatively short gorge opening out into a beautiful wooded valley and then up into alpine meadows.

The sculpture trail on the Molo Sud in San Benedetto is a lovely place to stroll on a sunny evening.
