Just half an hour’s drive from Ancona is the beautiful coastal town of Sirolo. For over 2 decades, Sirolo’s beaches come under the European Blue Flag status -prisitine, clear, safe and gorgeous! Two of its most famous beaches, Spaggia Urbani and Due Sorelle, are most crowded in the summer and since I visited in May, summer season hadn’t officially started. So obviously I didn’t relish the waters up close but saw the beaches from the old town.
Sirolo as a town has a very beachy vibe with its piazza alive and kicking among colorful back streets. Walking around in the town and seeing it’s 11th century walls is really walking back in time. There are plenty of bars where a drink or caffe can be enjoyed with a view. Sirolo has a vibrant feel to it, even on a cloudy day!
It is one of the places I would implore everyone to visit in Le Marche as it gives a break from the historic sites of Loreto and Recanati. Personally, Sirolo stands to be my favorite in Le Marche so far! Did you love it too??
