An amazing walk through the medieval town of Acquaviva Picena to learn about ancient love stories and how they still echo nowadays. We will walk together in this enchanted place, learn about its amazing history and finally go INSIDE the XIII century fortress from where we will have stunning views all the way to the Adriatic Sea! A quick stop by the historical association headquarters will make us learn about the medieval festival they run every year (Palio) and we will also see costumes, drapes, and local crafts from the medieval tradition.
Born in 1981 in Rome, Matteo has been a Tour Leader all over Europe for US groups of students and adults since 2003. He moved to Ascoli Piceno (where his father's family is from) in 2020 due to the pandemic and since then he decided to dedicate his "forced" time off to promoting Ascoli Piceno and its whole region, Marche.

This was such a special tour. All the local businesses and people involved - getting to see tasty locally made treats and having a special tour inside the fort just for us. I found it really special and gave me such a connection with the people there. So much effort had been put into this tour and I now really want to visit in real life!

Very interesting tour Matteo. Beautiful views, great history and interesting facts (love the but with the shield demonstration, sometimes it pays to be left-handed!). We love Italy and your tours help us appreciate more a region not as well known (to us at least). Thank you Matteo and thank you VT.
