We talked about the beauty of the beaches and if you have come this far it means that at least a little we have intrigued you, so let's get straight to the point: organizing a trip to the Marche is neither difficult nor too expensive! The capital, Ancona, is very well connected to the rest of the region both by road and by rail so, whether you choose to travel by car or train, you will have no problems getting around, for example the entire coast is crossed by the A14 motorway and the state road 16 that lead everywhere. As for accommodation facilities, contrary to what one might think,prices start from € 45,00 per night in high season summer for a hotel or B&B room, therefore with breakfast included.
