The Marche region at your fingertips
MacerataIts symbol is the Sferisterio Arena, the open-air theater in the historic center, originally built for an ancient medieval game called "il gioco del bracciale" (the game of the ball with the wooden bracelet); today, it is the location for concerts, opera and for Musicultura, the festival of popular songs. Also worth seeing is Palazzo Buonaccorsi, home of the Carriage Museum and the ancient and modern art, and the Museum of Italian art of the twentieth century in Palazzo Ricci.

Great hotel, excellent service, beautiful areaWe loved this stay at Villa Quiet as much as our two previous stays there. The rooms are spacious, clean, and very well tended, the restaurant is excellent, from first course to dessert and wines, the park and swimming pool offer a great rest after visiting the culturally rich Marchegiani region. The staff is very friendly and helpful. The hotel is great for families, couples, or single tourists looking for a both exclusive and authentic experience of Marchegiani culture and hospitality.
