Marche is an italian central region(the only plural one) not so known and popular like tuscany, sicily and many more.
This region has not important cities like Venice or Florence, it's made mainly by small villages and little towns.
It's on the east coast of Italy southern than Venice.
Seaside is for sure the main tourist attraction, helped by an important religious town: Loreto.
The best coast side is near Conero, a mountain straight on the sea where you can find and sometime hardly reach really amazing beaches with the most trasparent water.
The most worth a visit town are definitly Loreto(for the cathedral and pelegrims pourpouses), Urbino(one of the most ancient university in Italy), Macerata (a great amphiteater to enjoy opera), and some more that I will describe in the page.

- Cons:high season and not well developed transportation net.
Conero has some really great small beaches, try for example St. Michele beach, Conchiglia, Portonovo, Mezzavalle, Sassi... more travel advice
About 30 kilometers from Ancona, not on the coast, there are some nice small villages worth to visit, I can hardly... more travel advice
