Here you will find a magnificent natural scenery, which goes to the smooth beaches of San Benedetto del Tronto and Grottammare, to the green, sweet hills which are framed by the Sibillini Mounts; a place where every hill has its history, to tell and to let you live it! The Riviera delle Palme has a typical Mediterranean scrub rich in holm oaks, bay trees, maritime pines, Aleppo pines and oaks, plane trees, elms, mulberrys which follow one another along the streets that go towards the centuries-old villages where the time seems to be stopped: Acquaviva Picena, Monteprandone, Ripatransone, Offida... all with its history and a beautiful view on the Adriatic Sea. San Benedetto del Tronto has the most majestic promenade in Italy, with its 30m width.

In 1600, this were a little town of fishermen and had about 600 inhabitants. Only the bravery and courage of these men made San Benedetto del Tronto one of the most important harbours in Italy and one of the most flourishing national fish market. Nowadays fish is a cornerstone in the city, which lives thanks to marine activities. Really appreciated even on the culinary side, who comes in the Riviera delle Palme must taste the famous “brodetto”, a typical fish dish. San Benedetto is rich in amenities and venues not only in the center but also along the Riviera and on the hills which framed this stretch of Coast. San Benedetto del Tronto and the Riviera delle Palme: two places to discover, able to cause deep emotions and unforgettable memories.
