Fun and entertainment for the young and the old A fun holiday on the Velvet Beach and its surroundings

In Senigallia you will find the greenest fun in Italy: Labirinto di mais, one of the largest corn mazes in central Italy, a few km from the town centre on S.P. Corinaldese 52 (Provincial Road) with over 12,000 visitors every year. An original zero-impact attraction, Labirinto di Mais not only is an unusual family game, but also a great green classroom. Special events and activities are organised every year, such as drama workshops for children and adults, theme events, games with prizes, and playing activities for infants.

Falconara Marittima hosts Parco Zoo, a zoo park of about 60,000 m2. Since the 1980’s Parco Zoo Falconara is a member of U.I.Z.A. (the Italian Zoo and Aquarium Association, born in 1971). The association puts together the Italian zoos and aquariums that meet a specific ethical code. It keeps members constantly informed about the rules and legislation to be complied with and fosters the correct behaviours established by the latest European standards and principles for zoos. Parco Zoo Falconara hosts important endangered species included in C.I.T.E.S. (Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora established in 1973 in Washington).

An especially attractive visit can be paid to Grotte di Frasassi, the beautiful caves in the heart of the Regional Natural Park of Gola della Rossa in Genga. For kids over 12, two speleo-adventure route for great adventurers. Only 15 km away from the Caves, in Felceto di Matelica, you will find Parco dei dinosauri Le pietre del drago. The dinosaur park covers an area of 10,000 m2 populated by 16 real-size dinosaurs, as part of a larger area equipped with picnic areas, caravan stops and children playgrounds.

AcquaPark Verde Azzurro in Cingoli (MC) is the ideal place if you cannot stay away from water: sports swimming pools, Jacuzzi baths, waterslides, descending routes, without forgetting the relax areas with sunrooms and green spaces.

You can also have fun with science: at Museo del Balì in Saltara, in the province of Pesaro Urbino, science can be discovered in everyday life through interactive stations going from perception to physics, with a planetarium and an astronomic observatory. The museum is hosted in a spectacular XVIII century villa.
