Ascoli Piceno, capital of the province, is full of buildings, streets and squares that tell the ancient history: to start from People’s Square, site of the ancient forum and the residence of the Captains of the People, and Piazza Arringo, the political heart of the city, home to the Cathedral and Bishop’s Palace. Also known as the “Museum Square”, Piazza Arringo includes the Art Gallery, rich in numerous works of art, such as Titian, Guido Reni and Joseph Pellizza Volpedo, the Diocesan Museum and the State Archaeological Museum. There are many religious buildings as the church of St. Thomas, the church of S. Maria Intervineas, crossing the fourteen Romanesque churches, until the Baptistery of St. John, one of the most important examples of Romanesque architecture in Italy. In the rest of the province you can visit San Benedetto del Tronto, characterized by a promenade with wide beach surrounded by the intense green of the numerous palm trees present; Offida, with the remains of the fifteenth-century fortress and Ripatransone, also called “Belvedere of the Piceno”. Among the seaside place, there are narrow streets of Grottammare with the fine sandy beach and Cupra Marittima, whose milder climate supports the growth of tropical vegetation.
