The seaside village of Porto Recanati stands on the coastal plain below the hill on which the ancient Recanati, birthplace of the poet Giacomo Leopardi, is located.
The historic centre of Porto Recanati still retains the charm of a fishing village, with its marina, moored boats and colourful houses. The seafront promenade is lively and animated, especially in summer, where one can take pleasant walks, among restaurants, bars and kiosks. The city beaches of Porto Recanati are well-equipped and suitable for families with children thanks to the shallow and sloping seabed.
Porto Recanati's location is strategic for visiting neighbouring towns such as Loreto, the city of the Basilica of the Holy House, Recanati with the house where Leopardi was born, and the Conero Park with its unspoilt beaches and Mount Conero itself, with its thousands of hiking trails.
