Things To Do In Ascoli Piceno

There are very few things in the world that are more exciting than going on a trip. Traveling expands your horizons, teaches you new things and it allows you to see some beautiful places you might never go back to.

That is why choosing the best possible destination is extremely important, because you want to make sure it's worth it. Italy is one of those places that have a lot to offer, so let me tell you everything there is to know about things to do in Ascoli Piceno, a gorgeous city in the region of Le Marche.

A great place to start your visit to Ascoli Piceno from is the Piazza del Popolo. The first thing you will notice there is how all the buildings were built in very similar styles, which makes the square look like the most perfect architectural harmony you have ever seen.

In the Piazza del Popolo you will find the Palazzo dei Capitani, an imposing structure which was built between 1200 and 1300 and which is used as the town hall. You can visit the interior every day of the year, which will give you the chance to see some archaeological remains which were recently found.

Also in Piazza del Popolo, you can't miss the chance to visit the gorgeous San Francesco church, which started being built in 1258. Once inside, you will notice the interior is very simple, but you will be able to see a great mixture of Gothic and Romanesque styles.

If you are into museums, please visit the two most popular museums in Ascoli Piceno. The first one is the Pinacoteca Civica, where you will see paintings which date back to 1400 by Italian painters Carlo Crivelli, Cola dell’Amatrice and Tiziano. The other is the Diocesano museum, where you will have the chance to see more fantastic paintings by Carlo Crivelli.

And if you would like to be catapulted back to the middle ages, take a walk around Via delle Stelle, which is a street that outlines the old walls that used to protect the city.

Those are the best things to do in Ascoli Piceno which, mixed with the amazing food you will have the chance of tasting there, will make for a trip you will never forget.
