Blue Guide : The Marche and San Marino
(2 Revised edition)
The guide retains the Blue Guides' traditional focus on history, culture and the arts, but explores the Marche in all its many ramifications: this is an area of stunning natural beauty, with national parks, abundant wildlife, caves and river gorges - not to mention exceptional food and wine.
Eating and drinking is a major part of this guide and each chapter contains suggestions of places to eat and regional delicacies to sample.
The Marche is also an important manufacturing region, with shoe-makers, hat-makers, violin-makers and lace-makers still plying age-old trades.
Tips on where to shop for typical local products are also included.
