Just 10 miles away is one of Italy's most amazing natural wonders - the Frasassi Caves. Here guides help you explore the intricate and breathtaking series of underground limestone caverns which are lit up to maximise their beauty. Although yet to be fully mapped they are already one of the country's largest and most famous cave complexes and the hour long tours are fascinating -but take a jumper and a coat! Over a mile of them are open to the public and make for an interesting day "in" on a rainy day.
Nearby are many towns of interest such as Poggio San Marcello and Castelplanio. Also close at hand is the larger town of Jesi, whose impressive fourteenth century walls were built on Roman foundations and dominate the entrance to the town. Once within the town's wall the architecture and history should keep you busy in between the essential ice-cream and aperitivo stops at some of its wide choice of bars.
