3. Marcelli: Sanctuary of Loreto & Recanati Guided E-Bike Tour
Explore one of the most significant cultural attractions in Italy's Marche region by e-bike. Join a guided tour from Marcelli and cycle through the scenic countryside to visit the Basilica della Santa Casa. From here, pass by the village of Recanati before making your way back to Marcelli.
Meet your guide and set out on your cycling adventure. Make your way to the small hill town of Loreto to see the Sanctuary of the Holy House of Loreto, home to the Shrine of the Holy House of the Virgin Mary.
An important pilgrimage site for Christians, the Santa Casa is the house from Nazareth where Mary was born and raised. It is also where she received the announcement from the archangel Gabriel of her divine motherhood.
Spend some time here, taking in the significance of this important religious site. Then, return to your e-bike and follow your guide as you pedal towards the village of Recanati, the birthplace of Giacomo Leopardi, one of the greatest Italian poets of the 19th century.
The final leg of your tour takes you through the hills of Recanati. Cycle past vineyards and along the coastline, admiring wonderful views as you make your way back to the bicycle store in Marcelli where your tour began.
