    This is a lovely piazza, totally clad in local travertine. I live 30 meters from this place, and walk through it every day. It is really beautiful, but locals claim it is the most beautiful piazza in Italy!!! It is NOT. Tuscany has at least 3-4 which are far nicer, then there is the rest of Italy to consider. But do visit, too bad it is so cluttered with restaurant umbrellas and tables, but??? So, sit and have a drink! Try the famous olives which are really quite wonderful! Ascoli is surely worth a couple days' visit. But it's not very large, you can hit all the high spots in more in a day or two. (now bracing for the attacks!)

    The ceiling was being renovated when we visited, so it was draped with a large net, but this did not obscure one's view. This is a beautiful cathedral, with magnificent mosaics, located in the Old Town of Ascoli Piceno.

    This square normally plays second fiddle to "Piazza del Popolo", but is equally worth it. Large and open, great for some group photos. Also many food merchants around and this is where the tours normally meet. You can park nearby

    Only 10 minute drive to this pretty village but gate locked so couldn’t access view from church, due to earthquake damage possibly. There is a road to walk further up which we followed for a while and can enjoy the fantastic views. Also restaurant was open at lunchtime in the week. Not a long trip out but worth visiting.

    Lots of restos and bars / cafes and shopping.....Very typical that all families with children of all ages come out to enjoy after the "siesta" quiet time during the afternoon. Gathering starts around 5 pm

    When we decided to visit this site we rang the doorbell of the office opposite the entrance and shortly a gentleman came out and offered to be our guide. Mr. Paggi was very informative and took us through the various parts of the temple connecting his description with the history. St. Emidio's remains were in this temple but later moved to the Cathedral which bears his name. We can recommend this visit as Mr. Paggi doesn't rush you through and if visitors are keen to learn more he can show a video presentation next door with more comprehensive details.

    Unfortunately, this romantic little church was closed on the day we were there, but it's history fascinated us. We would have liked to have seen inside it. Built on top of Roman ruins, which are visible on the one side, in a recent archeological dig, a sarcophagus was found with two skulls and one only skeleton, which was very curious. We need to find out more about it. While the majority of points of interest in Italy also appear in English, unfortunately, the explanation about this church was only in Italian, but from the translation it appears that these are the remains of an old woman that were found in 2013

    Forte malatesta is a well preserved structure just outside centro storico. Built by the Etruscans and then the Romans to control the access to the town from the bridge over the river, it was rebuilt by the popes with a famous architect 500 years ago. Now the fortress is a small museum withvarious seasonal expositions

    This is an ancient, fascinating structure. Lovely building without doubt. However, it is now crowded with (actually beautiful) art which has been recovered from churches in the area damaged the earthquake of 2016. Unfortunately, the interior is too small to accommodate all this extra art which detracts from it's simple beauty. Also, there is now a charge to enter which, probably, was not in effect before the art arrived. But worth a visit, regardless. My sister's father-in-law was baptized in this place in 1921, so there is even a family connection!

    It was great to see that these towers, we actually saw three, are being restored and kept in good condition.
