Macerata is set in the rolling farmlands of Le Marche and is home to one of Italy’s oldest Universities. Built of mellow hazelnut coloured brick, its old centre is still almost completely surrounded by the 16th century walls. Macerata has an unusual open-air theatre – the Sferisterio which is a vast arena which holds concerts and operas on a regular basis. Central in the city is the Piazza della Liberta which contains beautiful Palazzi and churches.
Walking through the Corso Matteotti and the Corso della Repubblica are just part of the delights of this beautiful city.
