I am completely blown away by the eastern region of Le Marche in Italy. After years of my Italian sojourns, I finally made it there thanks to the lovely ladies from DiscoverMarche. They not only gave me the initial push to plan a trip but also showed me around the best places in the region.

ITALY BEYOND THE OBVIOUS: 5 ROMANTIC TOWNS

Numana, Le Marche is postcard perfect

Numana, Le Marche

Numana was the first place I visited, a seaside town easy to fall in love with. Numana is  a popular summer destination and is divided into Numana Alta (upper) and Numana Bassa (lower). This beach town has history that goes back to the Romans.

The colors of Numana

There are various vantage points from where you can get the most spectacular views of the Adriatic! Numana is all about that vibrant beachy vibe that you are looking for…..!

Port of Numana

There are several bars and boutiques in Numana alta and many homes with signs of “affittacamere o affittare una stanza” (room(s) to rent). Summer must be crazy here! Most stores were sadly closed when I was there in May 2017 and there were hardly any people around even until 7 p.m.

One of the most picturesque streets: Costarella. Can you spot anyone??

The only place open on Numana alta was Gelateria Morelli where I delved into my favorite chocolate gelato that I can still remember the taste of. Buonissimo!!

Important Info:

-There are no trains to this part of Italy and the bus connectivity is erratic so hiring a car is the best way to travel.

-Best time to visit is June- Sept when the beaches are in full swing and it is more lively.

-For further information Numana Toursim is very useful.
