Arrival with your own transportation at your Relais immersed in the towns and fascinating hills of Marche region. Overnight stay.
Day 2 - CANFAITO BEECH FOREST – ELCITO
Breakfast at the Relais and transfer by car to the beech forest of Canfaito to meet your hiking guide. CANFAITO derives from the Latin word "campum faiutum" and means "field of beeches": you will walk with a naturalistic guide among the secular beeches and you will meet the oldest beech tree of the Marche region, included among the 300 monumental trees of Italy. The autumn colors make this wood one of the most incredible NATURALISTIC SHOWS of all central Italy. Afterwards, with your car and your private guide, you will move to ELCITO, a picturesque stone village perched on the mountain, surrounded by a landscape similar to that of the South American Andes. Return to your Relais and late afternoon visit to a local winery with tasting and dinner. Overnight stay at the Relais.
Day 3 - OSIMO – OFFAGNA – SIROLO
Departure by car to OSIMO, private guided tour of this interesting town, off the beaten track, perched on a hill in the hinterland of the Conero Riviera. The delightful historical center of this city will surely surprise you: from the cathedral with its crypt dating back to 1100 and the bronze baptismal font, to the basilica of St. Joseph of Cupertino and the 17th century Town Hall. Then you will visit OFFAGNA, a village on the top of a hill with a 360 degree view of the hinterland of Ancona, up to the Conero and the coast. The medieval glimpses of the narrow streets of the center, Piazza del Comune, Piazza del Maniera and the 15th century fortress are the pearls of this delightful town. After the visit of Offagna, you will say goodbye to your guide and you will have the afternoon free where we suggest the visit of Sirolo in autonomy, to enjoy the landscapes of the Riviera del Conero. Overnight stay in the Relais.
Day 4 - LORETO – RECANATI – DEPARTURE
Check out from your Relais after breakfast, transfer in autonomy to LORETO, where your private guide will make you discover this village immersed in sacredness, thanks to the house of Mary, arrived in flight from Nazareth, as the legend says. The 1500's marble facing designed by Bramante, inside the sanctuary, is one of the most precious monuments of the region. After Loreto you will move to Recanati where the guide will show you the beauties of this town that gave birth to the poet Leopardi.
