Introducing Macerata

Straddling low-rise hills, Macerata combines charming hill-town scenery with the verve of student life – its university is one of Europe's oldest, dating to 1290. Its old town, a jumbled maze of cobblestone streets and honey-coloured palazzi, springs to life in summer for a month-long opera festival.
