Let’s leave today to discover the Conero area and live an unforgettable experience in contact with nature.
In the heart of the Conero, the two towns of ancient origins will welcome you with warmth and familiarity.
In summer, the alleys and small squares are filled with lively events, while they still offer the chance to admire the remains of their ancient origins: from Sirolo’s typically mediaeval buildings to the findings of important Picene necropolises that can be visited at the archaeological sites in Sirolo and at the antiquarium in Numana.
The typical restaurants and magnificent panoramic views will make you fall in love with these two jewels with a distinctly romantic soul.
A city of faith and spirituality, its beating heart is the Basilica of the Holy House which houses the remains of the Holy House of Nazareth where Mary received the Annunciation. The holy relic is enclosed in a marble casket of high artistic content designed by Bramante, placed in the centre of the sanctuary characterised by Sangallo’s majestic dome and the bell tower designed by Vanvitelli. Next to it is the exquisite Apostolic Palace whose patrol walkways can be walked. Numerous works of art can be admired in the naves, the sanctuary chapels and the rooms of the palace, including masterpieces by Melozzo da Forlì, Pomarancio and Lorenzo Lotto.
The ‘native wild village’ of the famous 19th-century poet Giacomo Leopardi is a place of wide-ranging cultural interest. In addition to the possibility of visiting the places where the poet spent his youth and that inspired his rich literary production, Recanati offers many points of interest, such as a visit to Piazza Leopardi with the Palazzo Comunale, the ancient Church of San Domenico and the Vertical Museum housed inside the Torre del Borgo, from which to enjoy the splendid panorama from the sea to the inland mountains.
The Conero Riviera offers many treasures to its visitors and not all of them in the ‘light of day’.
Hidden beneath the perimeter of the town of Camerano are the mysterious and fascinating underground caves.
These have been built since the Neolithic era, bringing to the eye bas-reliefs of a religious nature, architectural ornaments and interesting historical insights ranging from ancient history, the Middle Ages to the world wars, interweaving religion and paganism.

Presso la spettacolare Villa Vetta Marina, dove secondo gli storici San Francesco fondò un convento francescano, si possono ancora oggi ammirare due olmi che secondo la tradizione vennero piantati qui dal Santo di Assisi, prima di imbarcarsi per la Terra Santa. Affascinante è ancora la tradizione secondo cui dal giardino del convento, guardando verso sud San Francesco definì quella come Valle Fortunata profetizzandone la Traslazione della Santa Casa di Nazareth a Loreto avvenuta circa 200 anni dopo.
