|Tour itinerary includes||Nature, culture, food and wine, history, unique encounters, adventure|
|Not included||Transport to and from the destination|
Day 1: Arrival in Cingoli
In the afternoon arrival and accommodation in a hotel. Here the atmosphere is familiar, you feel immediately at home. It is the right place for those who love to immerse themselves in nature and enjoy a weekend in the Marche region in complete tranquillity.
After taking possession of your room and exploring the surroundings, you will visit Valerio, a passionate and very young winemaker. With him, you will discover the winery, visit the vineyards and the cellar, and then enjoy a tasting of his excellent Verdicchio dei Castelli di Jesi wines, paired with various courses for an aperitif-dinner with a difference!
Included: Winery tour with aperitif, overnight stay and breakfast
Day 2: Monte San Vicino
In the early morning you will move to the slopes of Monte San Vicino (about 15 minutes by car) to meet Enrico and Gabriele and venture out with them to discover the area on horseback! The excursion will last a couple of hours, but at the end the exploration is not over yet!
After saying goodbye to your horses, you will meet another Enrico, a horticulturist and beekeeper, and with him you will set off to discover the fantastic world of bees. Not far from the stables, Enrico will take you to his apiary where he will introduce you to the life of bees. You will take off your knight’s clothes and dress up (literally…) as a beekeeper! The morning ends right at lunchtime.
In the afternoon you can relax in the shade of a mulberry tree, in the whirlpool bath or by the lake! If, on the other hand, you are still in the mood for new explorations, you can attempt the ascent to the summit of Monte San Vicino: a hike that is accessible to all and not particularly demanding, but very rewarding for the panorama that opens up. Or you can set off to visit the nearby, delightful village of Elcito, which some call “the Tibet of the Marche”.
In the evening, before sunset, we recommend a trip to Cingoli to look out over the famous “balcony of Le Marche” and enjoy the unique panorama. 40 minutes before sunset, not far from the balcony, the carousel of the last sun is activated, a clock but above all a work of art dedicated to the warmth of the moment of sunset (the last sun) sung by Fabrizio De André in the song “Il pescatore”.
Visited: Monte San Vicino, Cingoli
Included: horseback riding with guide, visit to the apiary, overnight stay and breakfast
Day 3: Cingoli
There is still time for a few more adventures before we set off again!
In the morning we recommend a visit to the old mill where Andrea, the miller, will tell you about the history of this place and his family, who have been running it for generations. A place where the main protagonist is water, which has been driving the mill’s stone millstones since 1500 and where today it provides the necessary power for a hydroelectric power station, the latest arrival. A visit to discover the role of water that has marked this place for centuries. Meeting the miller and discovering the production process of stone-ground organic flours will be an excellent conclusion to your weekend in Le Marche.
Or, if you prefer to add a little sparkle, we recommend spending the morning at the Adventure Park with its suspended trails on the river. A route can take about 1.30 hours and the park is located near the accommodation. There are different levels of difficulty of the courses and you can choose which to do or how many to do.
If you’re in the mood for a bit of sport, it’s a great opportunity to get on an e-bike and explore the area guided by Silvano! A motocross champion in his youth, he now dedicates himself to accompanying small groups on e-bikes on itineraries to discover this fantastic territory.
