Charm in Le Marche
In the Marche, you can eat very tasty and yet inexpensive. Get to like the truffle dishes, especially in Aqualagna (the town of truffles in 20 minutes of Fratte Rosa) and on the road through the Gola del Furlo.
Because the coast is never far away, you will find plenty of restaurants with seafood. Spaghetti alle Vongole or Frutti di Mare are delicious! The Marchegiani, like all Italians, love children and prepare for the little ones the best pastas and pizzas, even if they arent mentioned on the card! In almost every village you can eat in a nice local restaurant. Also in Fratte Rosa there are 2 restaurants !
The wines from Le Marche are starting to be famous outside of Le Marche.
The most famous wines from the region are the white Verdicchio and Bianchello del Metauro and the red Rosso Piceno and Rosso Conero. You can buy your wine in the supermarket but also at the local winery. Near Rosa Fratte you find several good cantinas where you can taste and buy wines : e.g. Terra Cruda in Fratte Rosa, domain Fiorini in Barcchi and domain Bucchini in Isola di Fano.
Cartoceto is known for its excellent olive oil. You'll find the purest olive oil from Italy in this beautiful village.
In every village there is a weekly market where local farmers sell their organic fruit and vegetables. The Marches are also the region where organic farming in Europe originated in the year 1970. Many restaurants also offer meat and vegetables of their own garden.
Ice cream (gelato) in all flavours and colours can be eaten in every town in the countryside or at the coast. Fossombrone alone (one nearest town of Fratte Rosa) has three ice bars!
And like the real Italians, you'll definitely enjoy the delicious cappuccinos and coffees in the small local bars. They are great and very cheap!
