Some journeys are all about the heart and what it remembers. I lost mine to the Marche region of Italy many years ago.

My husband, Richard, and I first travelled here back in 2001. Marche is a magical landscape set in the east between Rimini and Pescara, with rolling hills, majestic mountains and medieval towns dotted on the hillsides. We stumbled across a small hilltop town called Sarnano almost by accident. It was late one evening, we needed to eat, and we drove into this pretty place, finding a simple restaurant up a steep and winding street.
