Ascoli Piceno

The city was founded in the 11th century BC by the Picenes. Legend has it that they were guided by a woodpecker, which later gave its name to the “Piceno” region. The city has undergone significant changes over time, passing through various historical periods—from the Romans to the Lombards, from the Middle Ages to the era of free communes, and then coming under the control of the Papal States in the 15th century. It still preserves many intact testimonies from the Roman, medieval, Renaissance, and papal domination eras. Ascoli Piceno has a very extensive historic center, which is entirely built in local travertine. Among the most admired cities in central Italy for its artistic and architectural wealth, it retains several noble towers and bell towers, earning it the nickname “city of a hundred towers.”


The route we will take, accompanied by a multilingual audio-video guide in 8 languages, will touch picturesque points of the city, delving into the heart of Ascoli Piceno and beyond its gates. We will visit squares and historic monuments, to fully appreciate their beauty.

Consult the brochure for the tour of the historic center of Ascoli Piceno aboard the train with audio-video guides in Italian, English, Portuguese, Spanish, French, Chinese, Russian, and German.

The organization reserves the right to determine, from time to time, the operation of the tours. Information on the type of route will be published at the INFO POINT located in Piazza Arringo (in front of the Archaeological Museum).
