Set amid low-lying green hills, Macerata is a charming provincial town with a wonderfully preserved hilltop centre and an animated student population – its university is one of Europe's oldest, dating to 1290. Its old town, threaded through by skinny cobblestone streets lined by honey-coloured brick palazzi, springs to life in summer for the town's celebrated month-long opera festival.
