Modern farmhouse in Italy pays homage to its agricultural surroundings

Tucked into the rolling wheat fields of the Italian region of Le Marche, the Border Crossing House is a private residence that pays homage to the area’s rich agricultural history. Designed by Italian firm Simone Subissati Architects, the project manages to skillfully blend a traditional barn volume with several contemporary features, creating a light-filled family home that fits respectfully into its idyllic setting. Located in Polverigi, just outside of Ancona, the Border Crossing House is set...

My Best Travel Moments of 2019

Every year, I love looking back at the best travel moments. What were the moments that I’m going to remember for always? I write them down and document them on the site so I can always look back at them when I need a smile. I began the year thinking that I was going to maintain a lower level of travel while living in New York. “Let’s not poke the beast,” I wrote in 2018, thinking that I had finally found what worked best for me. The year certainly began that way, with a weeklong trip to Me...

AK Monthly Recap: September 2019

Sometimes a moment makes your month. That’s what happened in September. At Traverse in Trentino in June, the closing keynote included blogger Sassy Wyatt, who writes about travel and disability and is visually impaired. She pointed out that bloggers should be writing descriptions of their photos in the alt text field, because that’s what visually impaired people use to understand the photos. At that point I had been blogging for seventeen years, professionally for nine years, and had no clue t...

Fortieth Anniversary Gala of the Rossini Opera Festival in Pesaro

Earlier this month I reported from the Macerata Opera Festival – a largely Italian affair frequented by few foreigners. One week later I attended the 40th anniversary gala of the Rossini Opera Festival in Pesaro, about 100 km north in the same region of Le Marche and a prominent stop on the international circuit. One one hears much English, French, German and Japanese, and the printed program features a long list of non-Italian financial sponsors.

AK Monthly Recap: August 2019

Can I breathe yet? This month, I visited six countries and slept in 19 different beds. NINETEEN DIFFERENT BEDS. I have been hitting the road hard this summer, but this is my craziest month of all. When I moved to New York in 2016, I made the decision to cap my travels at 25% of the time. That would allow me to actually have a life in New York and build relationships and establish routines. So why the big change? I got some interesting opportunities and didn’t see a reason to say no. That 25% n...

Best things to do in Marche, Italy

The stone piazza in Urbisaglia, in the Marche region of central Italy, is like many in the country’s medieval villages. School kids play soccer under the shadow of a 16th-century tower, their abandoned book bags strewn on the church steps. Two older men sit on a bench and talk politics. A woman crosses the piazza, heading home with groceries in-hand. The clothing store shopkeeper steps outside to smoke a cigarette as a pair of travelers watch Italian life unfold, relaxing over aperitivi and s...

Cocktail Friday – The Spaghetti House Trattoria’s Ferrero Martini

Alas, a destination wedding bound for Italy’s Le Marche region in Autumn may not be on the cards for all of us. Yet Queensland’s brides and grooms can still capture the flavour of the season – along with the Italians’ signature focus on family, friends and food – on their wedding day at The Spaghetti House Trattoria on Brisbane’s South Bank. Scented with the fragrance of freshly sprouting basil and zesty citrus (not to mention the promise of rising dough), the trattoria can play host to relaxed ...

Le Marche: top 10 reasons to visit Italy’s hidden gem

Le Marche is actually one of the smallest regions in Italy and, arguably, one of the least well known. However, there is no doubting that it really is the hidden gem of this beautiful country with a size that is deceptive given the incredible wealth of sights to see and attractions to visit. No matter […] The post Le Marche: top 10 reasons to visit Italy’s hidden gem appeared first on A Luxury Travel Blog.

Roadtrip Italy for under $500

With miles of coastline , winding mountains roads, and ever-changing scenery, Italy is the perfect road trip country. Travel from the lagoon fishing town of Chioggia, near Venice, in the northeast, down the east coast to Puglia, then up the west coast to the brightly colored villages of Cinque Terre. Stop on the way for Byzantine mosaics, prehistoric caves, hiking routes with magnificent views, and (probably) the best focaccia in Italy. You might think a trip such as this would be costly, but b...

Tips for an affordable vacation (without sacrificing the experience)

  Whenever I’m engaged in conversation about what I do for a living, the other person’s reaction is mostly predictable. First, a look of zoned-out wanderlust washes over their face. I can see them dreaming of laying on a colorful umbrella-shaded lounge chair on a pebbled-beach in the French Riviera or sipping wine among the grapevines and cypress trees while overlooking the emerald-green undulating hills of Tuscany. But at some point, that dreamy look turns to one of sadness, as those images tur...

Ancona, Italy: More Than Meets The Eye

How to Spend an Evening in Florence

I don’t get to Florence much. When Piero Asso invites me, I can’t get there quickly enough. Piero is the reason they make Ferraris. Thing is, Piero plans an evening out like no one else I know. The thought of it makes one’s gastronomic equipment quiver in pinkish delight. We zig-zag through the center from the Chestnut tower to Dante’s stone seat, Sasso di Dante. There’s a story in every little detail you might miss. We detour to Piazza D’Azeglio to pay homage to a palazzo in which Pellegr...

VIDEO: An Undiscovered Gem in Italy: The Le Marche Region

By now, it’s no secret that I fell in love with the little-known region of Le Marche, Italy. I’ve written about the artisans and traditions of Le Marche, and about my authentic Italian experience while staying at Palazzo Donati in Le Marche, but words can only go so far to describe the wonderful the people and places of this undiscovered gem in Italy. As they say, a picture is worth a thousand words, so I’ve created a video that pulls it all together. Enjoy!     Author’s Note:... The post VIDEO:...

The Artisans and Ancient Traditions of Le Marche, Italy

There is a place in Italy where things are still done the old way. Where value is measured by the preservation of ancient traditions. Where life is often difficult, but luxuriously slow and overflowing with simple joys. That place is the region of Le Marche. My first inkling that Le Marche would offer a different kind of Italian experience came at Ristorante da Uto , located in the ancient market town of Mercatello sul Metauro. With a flourish, owner Umberto Sacchi set bowls of Passatelli w...

PHOTO: Main Piazza of Mercatello sul Metauro, in Le Marche, Italy

The main Piazza of Mercatello sul Metauro, in the Le Marche region of Italy. I spent an idyllic few days here, wandering the commune and meeting the locals who gathered every evening on the Piazza. But the best view of the Piazza of Mercatello sul Metauro was from the third floor window of the 16th century Palazzo Donati, where I had come to enjoy cooking classes and visits to the rich artisan traditions still practiced in the relatively undiscovered part of Italy. Author’s note: I was a gu...

PHOTO: Ancient Streets in the Village of Mercatello sul Metauro, Italy

Ancient stone buildings mingle with brightly painted facades in the village of Mercatello sul Metauro in the Le Marche province of Italy. Located about 62 miles west of Ancona, the tiny village is home to only 1,300 residents. Some of the homes were built of stone without the use of mortar. Those that remain are becoming harder to maintain, as very few craftsmen remain who are capable of building in this manner. In addition to offering visitors glimpses down charming old streets like this o...

PHOTO: Beautiful Metauro River Valley in the Le Marche Region of Italy

The virtually unknown Le Marche region of Italy offers splendid scenery that rivals anything found in the more popular province of Tuscany. I found this picture-postcard view in the Metauro River Valley. The river carved this landscape over the centuries as it wound down from the Apennine Mountains to the Adriatic Sea. The result is a gently rolling terrain that is perfect for vineyards and a multitude of other crops. The Metauro River punctuates these pastoral scenes with mini waterfalls a...

PHOTO: Learning to Make Taglietelle Pasta from Scratch in Le Marche, Italy

One of the highlights of my Italian holiday in Le Marche, Italy included lessons on how to make Tagliatelle pasta from scratch. The demonstration took place in Palazzo Donati, the magnificent 16th century restored palace where I was staying. Lina often prepares meals for groups staying at the palace. She made the whole process look easy, but it was obvious that there was a lot of work involved. Just kneading the dough was a workout, and rolling it out on the marble table until it was razor ...

Palazzo Donati – An Authentic Italian Experience in Le Marche, Italy

I perused the equipment on the table in front of me with more than a little trepidation. Slicers, dicers, chef’s knives, and immersion blenders waited patiently to be placed in the hands of the talented cooks who had gathered at Palazzo Donati to learn about vegan cooking. Anyone who knows me will shake their head in disbelief that I would attend a cooking workshop by choice. Simply put, I do not cook. I’m lucky if I can prepare an omelette without scorching it. With no home (and thus... Th...

Every lane offers postcard perfect views in the tiny village of Mercatello sul Metauro, Italy, located in the northeastern province of Le Marche. As I wandered the main piazza of Mercatello sul Metauro or the back lanes, I was constantly amazed by the saturated palette of colors found in this little-known region. It didn’t seem to matter what time of day, every scene took on the golden hue of sunrise and sunset. Artists have long held that the light in certain parts of the world are richer ...
