The Province of Macerata can be the first place to start your exploration in this peaceful and beautiful region. Macerata is far from sea just 30 Km, half hour, that can move you from seaside (you have to see Porto S. Elpidio, Civitanova Marche orPorto Potenza Picena) to an ancient world jealously keep between green hills.

The city is very ancient and was founded by ancient Romans, but the “face” that we can see today is mostly Medieval and Renaissance. Every step through these ancient paths and on these ancient stones is worth the time taken: the city is a great example of perfect protection of an ancient heritage. The wall of the XV century still surround the old town of Macerata and inside we can see amazing places like Piazza della Libeertà, the center of the city where moving around we can discover the most typical corners of the city, ancient places like the Baroque Church of San Paolo, the Theater Rossi, the Clock Tower, the City Hall, and the Merchants Lodge (Loggia dei Mercanti), a two tier arcades that is a symbol of the city.
