I am completely blown away by the eastern Italian region of Le Marche!! 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. Numana in Le Marche was one of the best places of the Adriatic and I’m now not surprised that Lonely Planet named Italy the 2nd favorite region to explore in 2020!! 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…..!!
Numana, Le Marche
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…..!
There are many bars and boutiques in Numana alta and places to rent which would say “affittare camere o affittare una stanza” (room(s) to rent). I can’t imagine how Summer must be here!
I was there in May 2017 and there were hardly any people around even until 7 p.m.
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!!
- 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.
