So where exactly is Le Marche you ask?
Well, that’s the number one question friends have asked us when we describe our trip to Italy. The Marche region lies on the east coast of Italy, between the Apennine Mountains and the Adriatic Sea. So if you drive from Rome towards Umbria and hang a right just before Florence, you’ll pass through Le Marche on your way to the coast.
What you’ll find is a region comparably ‘untouched’, borrowing the best of Umbria’s rolling hills and juxtaposing it with a long coastline of white sandy beaches and fortified coastal cities.
*Sigh* even weeks later, I still feel a hint of that warm Italian summer air.
Mark had never been to Italy, but I had many years ago. I thought I knew what to expect, but honestly, even retreading old footsteps felt like a new experience with perfect weather and a husband to share it with.
First up was Rome.
I’ll be taking a little break from Sunday best while I’m on holiday. Whilst I’m away you can follow my US adventures via Instagram.
See you soon.
We are going on a long awaited visit to discover beautiful Hobart, Tasmania this weekend. Can’t wait to see the Museum of Old and New Art aka Mona.
Poster of Tasmania above is by James Northfield – circa 1930. Find more gorgeous vintage Australian posters here.
Just taking a short break, be back soon.
