This is our most comprehensive tour of Fermo and the surrounding area. We start from the heart of the historic town centre, through the main streets and the main sites of interest. Then we go along a panoramic ridge and up to the Matteucci watchtower, once used to look out for Saracen incursions from the Adriatic Sea. Going up from the abbey of San Marco alle Paludi, we take in the amazing view of the north side of the city until we reach Girfalco hill, the cathedral and sprawling scenery from Monte Conero in the north to Gran Sasso in the south. We finish with refreshments in the shade provided by the loggias in Piazza del Popolo, like modern bike-riding knights.
