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: I stayed at Palazzo Donati, located in the tiny market village of Mercatello sul Metauro, while exploring the Le Marche region. The 17th century palace is available to rent for small groups seeking a creative holiday retreat in a small Italian village. Groups are welcome to create their own personalized experiences or book the “Authentic Italian Experience with Luisa – A One Week Holiday in Le Marche.” The program is generally held in April, May, September, and October, however, it will only be confirmed if a minimum of six participants have booked. The price per person for Luisa’s Authentic Italian Experience is €1,600 ($1,819 USD at the time of this writing) based on double occupancy, or €1,850 ($2,103 USD) for single occupancy, all inclusive except for airfare.

Disclosure: I was a guest of Palazzo Donati during my stay in Le Marche, Italy. However, the receipt and acceptance of complimentary items or services will never influence the content, topics, or posts in this blog. I write the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth.
