Loreto — 18 nights

Loreto, a hill town, is a comune of the Italian province of Ancona, in the Marche and most commonly known as the seat of the Basilica della Santa Casa, a popular Catholic pilgrimage site.LocationLoreto is located 127m above sea level on the right bank of the Musone river and 22km by rail south-southeast of Ancona; like many places in the Marche, it provides good views from the Apennines to the Adriatic.Main sightsThe city's main monuments occupy the four sides of the piazza: the college of the Jesuits; the Palazzo Comunale (formerly the Palazzo Apostolico), designed by Bramante, that houses an art gallery with works of Lorenzo Lotto, Vouet and Annibale Carracci as well as a collection of maiolica, and the Shrine of the Holy House (Santuario della Santa Casa). Get out of town with these interesting Loreto side-trips: Saint Claudio Al Chienti (in Corridonia), Macerata (Torre Civica, Chiesa Santa Maria della Misericordia, &more) and Fabriano (Presepi In Mostra, Paper and Watermark Museum Fabriano, &more). There's much more to do: take in the spiritual surroundings of Santuario Della Santa Casa, kick back and relax at Spiaggia dei Sassi Neri, appreciate the history behind Tempio del Valadier, and don't miss a visit to Piazza della Madonna.
