New Year’s eve in Rocca Calascio

Have you seen Ladyhawke film?
It was filmed in Rocca Calascio castle, Italy. Here you can find a famous scene where you can see the castle:

Last year, for the New Year’s eve, I planned with Erika to go to Rocca Calascio. We were so curious about the town and the landscapes!
We went a couple of days booking in a B&B, inside the center of the town

Where is Rocca Calascio?

It is in Abruzzo region, this is the car path from Rome


This was near our B&B, in the first night


The second day we went to the castle, walking.. it was funny and exciting, we were completely surrounded from snow mountains


This is the landscape within the castle


The last day we planned an excursion with snowshoes, we were cold but the views payed us back


What can I say more? It was a great New Year’s eve!

Welcome to my Marche

Before I was born my parents bought a house in a small town in Marche region. A long time ago I was with my relatives and I have beatiful memories about that days.
When I have a free weekend I go there to visit the cities and to stay with my relatives

How can I go there?

The best choice is to move freely with a car

What can I visit there?

You have plenty of choices: San Marino, Rimini, Riccione, Cattolica, Urbino, Frasassi caves, Borgo Pace natural pools, gola del Furlo, Gradara and his castle ( I mean about the history of Paolo and Francesca from Dante Alighieri’s hell), San Leo, Conero local park ( it has Amazing beaches ) and much more!

What I am talkin about? Let’s begin with the first city, Belforte all’Isauro. This is the car path from Rome:


These are a couple of pictures from Belforte all’Isauro

Belforte has a historycal castle, this picture is taken on top of it


Do you like to swim in natural pools? Borgo Pace is perfect for you! It has multiple natural pools and the water is fantastic


Most of the time you are driving in those places, you’ll deal with amazing views like these


You can’t miss Gola del Furlo, it’s beatiful to visit and if you like trekking u’ll fall in love for it. It has several trekking paths


Walking for one of those trekking paths u’ll have a stunning view


This is a video taken from a friend. I was scary about the height !!


Another place you can’t miss is San Marino, I suggest you to park the car and take the cableway


Have you ever heard about Frasassi caves? I suggest you to visit them!
Here we were following the guide before to begin the tour

This is some picture taken from the caves

Another place to visit it Gradara town, you must take a look at his famous castle, inside you can look at Paolo and Francesca’s stories

These are a couple of pictures taken from inside the castle

Recently I found another beatiful town, the smallest among the previous ones. His name is San Leo.
Basically is a mix of streets, squares, churches and on top of the town there is a historical castle!
This is the view from the Street ( 1 km away )


This is one of the interests point

Another detail: if you look around you, you will see mountains around the town, everywhere!!

There are more and more towns to visit!
And in each month of the year u will deal with food festivals, u will take a taste of local food, I strongly suggest to eat everything 😀
