The Marche for the Young - Youth Hostels
Among the existing forms of accommodation in the Marche region, the youth hostels are certainly among the favourite, and not only by young people. Although they are commonly referred to as youth hostels, they are actually open to everyone. A number of hostels also provide family rooms at attractive prices compared with other accommodation facilities.
The Marche region has a total of 34 hostels: 10 in the province of Ancona, 8 in the province of Pesaro and Urbino, 6 in the province of Ascoli Piceno and 8 in the province of Macerata
Youth Aggregation Centres
The Youth Aggregation Centres (Centri di Aggregazione Giovanile) are specific spaces that include speakers and animators, where educational, recreational, sport, art and cultural activities are carried out to foster and promote the socialization of children and teenagers; the activities are carried out on a public, private or self-managed basis, with the active participation of young people.
The centres are spread throughout the Marche provinces. For information, please visit the websites of the five provincial governments.
Youth Information Centres
The Youth Info Centres (the so-called Informagiovani) are municipal or provincial centres that offer free services of various kinds to young people. Young people can find information support for their training and professional courses, to better organize their leisure time, their vacation in Italy and abroad or to engage in social activity and volunteering.
Concerts - Discos
The Marche is a double-sided region as to concerts and entertainment. In summer, the main centres of attraction for live music are along the coast, with chalets particularly active form June to September. In winter, the hinterland offers the best opportunities to listen to good music. All provinces are extremely lively. Many facilities host major concerts in the region with internationally renowned artists performing in such places as sports arena or convention centres. There are also several alternative clubs where music shows are combined with tastings of wine and typical products of the region. Night entertainment is synonymous with discos and more…
The new generation clubs have abandoned the old concept of the disco, expanding their range of offerings with live music, shows, concerts and cabarets. Aperitif, dinner and dance have become the key ingredients of a 360-degree entertainment capable of satisfying everyone’s wishes. For information on concert schedules and nightlife, contact the municipal and provincial info points scattered throughout the Marche region.
