You know the Italian town that makes the best hand made Accordions?? It is Castelfidardo in Le Marche. I never knew about it until I went there this summer! However, Castelfidardo wasn’t really for me. It does not come in my “must see” sights of Le Marche and can easily be skipped.

Probably the rare time when I saw someone in the centre

There is an International Accordion Museum in Castelfidardo

The only good reason about going to Castelfidardo is its location- close to the sea and also other historic towns of Marche. Otherwise everything in this town is slow and practically closed. There is only one good Bar (usually not crowded) and a few odd shops selling goods such as the Accordion, books or quick service food.

I don’t remember reading the name of this Torre (Tower)

Nothing is open and it was 7 p.m.

However, there is one place not to be missed while visiting Castelfidardo and that is one of the oldest bread shops in Le Marche! Just at the entrance of the town, this Panetteria Pizzeria is owned by the lady in the picture below who has been making fresh bread for the town since years. Even after her husband’s passing recently, she makes sure the business goes on every day and starts her work at 4 a.m in the morning.

Fresh bread from the oven and a pizza rossa for me please!

Be sure to visit and say hello to the lady!
