This holiday offers the chance for all abilities to see and experience the very varied range of walks available in Italy's Le Marche. We will climb easy ridges to high summits to view the enchanting Sibillini National Park. We will forge a circular route up valleys and through a canyon to visit a hidden monks hermitage built into the mountainside many centuries ago. We will walk through scented woods to the cliff tops at the coast before a chance, for the more adventurous, to take a dip in the cool Adriatic sea. We will visit the high plateau at Casteluccio and, season permitting, view the acres of blooming wild flowers.

Le Marche walking holiday itinerary

An example of one of the walking days would be: after a sumptuous breakfast with fresh pastries and your choice of eggs we head off for a day walking in the Fiastrone Valley. A circular route starting from Monestero where we descend through wooded glades down into the Fiastrone Valley to meet the Fiastra River.

We then forge up-stream into the canyon (water levels permitting) involving some river crossings and a canyoning experience (a pair of rubber type sandals/crocs/Tevas are essential).

As we leave the canyon we stop for a picnic lunch beside the river. We then climb up to see the dam at Lake Fiastra and continue along the path to the Grotta dei Frati (Monks Hermitage - a small chapel and living quarters dating back to the 1200's and built inside a large cave). Taking a final river crossing before the hike back up to the start point.

Ascent: 600m; Descent: 600m; Time: 5 hours.

Possible route extension (1 hour): A 200m hike up to view the Lame Rosse (Red Blades) an amazing slice of red-pink crumbly terrain formed from ancient alluvial deposits being eroded by the elements into awe-inspiring cliffs and tottering pinnacles.
