Lonely Planet, Best in travel 2020, 2nd place at Italy regione Marche

On Friday 31 January 2020, Piceno tour operators, a land of excellence, have been awarded in Grottammare


Lonely Planet is the tourist guide par excellence, the reference point not only for those who want to go backpacking, but for all those who love to discover up close, anecdotes, uses and customs from all over the globe.

Every year Lonely Planet asks its authors and editors around the world to indicate their destinations for the year ahead. After heated discussions, the jury of experts reduced this long list to just 10 countries, 10 regions, 10 cities and 10 convenient destinations. Each destination is chosen because it is current, stimulating and surprising and suitable for traveling responsibly.

For 2020 here are the 10 best regions to visit: 1 Silk Road, Central Asia - 2 Marche, Italy - 3 Tōhoku, Japan - 4 Maine, USA - 5 Lord Howe Island, Australia - 6 Guìzhōu Province, China - 7 Province Cadiz, Spain - 8 Northeastern Argentina - 9 Kvarner Gulf, Croatia - 10 Amazon Rainforest, Brazil.

After decades in a somewhat out of the way role, the Marches are finally ready to put themselves in the spotlight. In 2020, in fact, the region will rise to the fore, when Urbino, one of its most suggestive cities, will lead the celebrations for the 500th anniversary of the death of the great Renaissance painter Raphael. So here is the perfect opportunity to start discovering an amazing territory, in many ways still unknown. And probably one of the reasons for its great charm is precisely that of being able to explore calmly and in relative solitude, majestic Roman ruins, soaring Gothic architecture, massive medieval castles and sublime Renaissance palaces that hold art collections among the richest in Italy. All enclosed between high wooded mountains and the placid Adriatic coast and seasoned with delicious gastronomic festivals.

Thus the President of the Marche region Luca Ceriscioli, accompanied by the Vice President Anna Casini, welcomed by the Vice-Mayor of Grottammare Lorenzo Rossi, spoke on Friday afternoon January 31, 2020 at the Kursaal Hall in Grottammare for the delivery of the official kits "Lonely Planet - Best in Travel 2020 "to the tour operators of the province of Ascoli Piceno, who have contributed with their commitment and work to make the Marche recognized as a tourist destination of excellence, just as Lonely Planet has certified.

Since the first days of 2020, the Marche Region has been giving a very sustained pace to promotional tourism activities in view of the celebrations of the major cultural events and not only that will characterize this year: as of 1 January, the television commercials with the testimonial Vincenzo Nibali went to the presentation of the tourist offer at the BIT in Milan will be broadcast in a few days on the Rai programs most listened to and programmed during the San Remo Festival. There will be events and proposals for sports and nature lovers with the Marche Outdoor project that will allow you to discover our region through more than 24 cycle paths, connected to countless experiences scattered throughout the territory.

The Marches in 2020 will therefore be synonymous with art, culture, sport, nature, sea and food and wine.
