LE MARCHE NATIONAL PARKS

  • Sibillini Mountains National Park
  • Conero National Park
  • Gola Della Rossa and Frasassi Regional Park
  • Monte San Bartolo Regional Park

The region of Le Marche – or Marche – is a magical one for a number of reasons. Additionally to the wine, food, kind people, etc, it’s abundant with natural beauty and national parks.

Much of the region is equipped with national parks, full of greenery, mountains, and rich views.

Here we’ve compiled a list of some of the region’s best main national parks to explore during your visit.

SIBILLINI MOUNTAINS NATIONAL PARK

The park covers nearly 700 square kilometers. This national park has been beautiful to visit since its establishment in 1993.

The park is mainly mountainous and stretches across the 4 provinces of Ascoli Piceno, Fermo, Macerata and Perugia.

These protected areas between Umbria and Le Marche consist of many different natural environments.

Mountains, rivers, streams, wooded forests, hills, and gorges fill this first mentioned of the national parks.

When exploring this spot, check out the Infernacico Gorge or mountain top sites such as Piani di Castelluccio di Norcia, il Redentore, and the Pizzo del Diavolo. The last one literally means the devil’s beard.

CONERO REGIONAL PARK

This park features a smaller portion of land but is just as beautiful. Established in 1987, this 60 square kilometer park spreads over the Ancona province, through Ancona, Sirolo, Camerano, and Numana.

Mount Conero has a unique cliff with challenging mountain paths to climb. Steep paths lead the way through the Conero Regional Park with views of green countryside, hills, rocky coasts, and cities.

GOLA DELLA ROSSA AND FRASASSI REGIONAL PARK

On the slope of the Apennine mountains, this 90 square-kilometer park is a natural zoo of sorts. The park is said to be the most beautiful of all the protected parks in Le Marche.

The image of the hedgehog is the symbol of the park itself due to their abundance in addition to royal eagles.

The municipalities of Serra San Quirico, Fabriano, Arcevia, and Genga host this wonderful natural area. If you’re visiting, be sure to check out the Grotte di Frasassi.

MONTE SAN BARTOLO REGIONAL PARK

Moving to the Urbino and Pesaro province, this park, established in 1994, spreads across only 15 square kilometers.

This national park features a section of cliffs over the coast of the Adriatic. It has a magical coastline but also plenty of rural inland areas. The park has a fascinating and wild environment with valleys, wooded areas and the coast.

These are just a few of the larger national parks. The region is equipped with plenty of smaller parks to visit such as Sasso Simone, Abbadia di Fiastra Reserve, Simoncello Park, and Cardeto Park.
