The geographical location of the Marches

The multifaceted Marche region in eastern Italy stretches over an area of 9,694 km² from the Apennines to the Adriatic Sea. To the north, the region borders Emilia-Romagna and the Republic of San Marino, and to the south, Abruzzo. To the west are Tuscany, Umbria and Lazio.

Things to know about the region

The Marches is a region located in central Italy, along the eastern coast, bordering Emilia-Romagna to the north, Tuscany to the northwest, Umbria to the west, and Abruzzo to the south.

It features a long coastline with sandy beaches and rocky cliffs, rolling hills, and the majestic Sibilline Mountains. The region spans an area of 9,694 square kilometers and is home to around 1.5 million people. It is known for its beautiful landscape, diverse geography, and vibrant coastal cities such as Pesaro, Ancona, and San Benedetto del Tronto. The region’s rivers provide important water resources for its agricultural activities.

The capital Ancona in the province of the same name lies directly on the beautiful Riviera del Conero. The climate is typically Mediterranean, with warm, dry summers and mild, rainy winter months.

Regional industrial enterprises and long-established family businesses characterise the economy. The mechanical engineering industry accounts for over a third of production, closely followed by the shoe industry. The most important and most profitable economic factor, however, is the tourism industry.
