Fermo

Overview

Cities of art by the sea

Fermo is located between the stunning peaks of the Apennines and the Adriatic Sea, perched on a hill overlooking the surrounding green countryside. It is the ideal place to enjoy moments of total relaxation along the shores of Lido di Fermo and Marina Palmense.

The historic centre spreads out between Corso Cefalonia and Corso Cavour, the two main roads leading to Piazza del Popolo, bordered by 16th-century brick porticoes. Among the most famous buildings is undoubtedly Palazzo dei Priori, home to the Como Art Museum and the famous World Map Room. Be sure to visit the Cathedral of Santa Maria Assunta and Villa Vitali, home to the city’s science museums. Since 2008, the Villa’s gardens have hosted an open-air theatre and a nature walk, with plants and flowers from around the world.

Near Fermo is the beautiful village of Torre di Palme, where you can enjoy a gentle walk through the nearby Cugnolo forest and Grotta degli Amanti nature preserve. Another unmissable destination is the Lago di Fiastra reservoir, where you can swim in its crystal-clear waters. From there, you can embark on an hour-long route to the Lame Rosse, a unique, reddish-coloured limestone formation. We also recommend visiting Amandola, which hosts the annual Diamanti a Tavola, the fair dedicated to the prized white truffle of the Sibillini Mountains. Near the San Ruffino Lake, don’t miss the splendid Abbey of San Ruffino with its unique underground burial chambers.
