Travertine Stone Lab Tour from Ascoli Piceno

Get off the typical tourist trail, and visit a travertine rock quarry, during your stay in scenic Ascoli Piceno. A number of Italy’s famous landmarks are constructed from the stone, and travertine buildings can be seen all over the city center. Begin this morning tour at the Frazione Rosara quarry, where your guide—the quarry owner—will share information about its history. Then, you’ll be given chisels and other tools and can try your hand at sculpting the stone.

Having seen some pretty spectacular Diocesan Museums around Le Marche this was a bit of a disappointment. It's small and contains few objects of real interest. They do try to make the best of what they have by theming it but this takes a bit of imagination and a generous spirit. Worth a look but don't expect too much. Long flight of stairs to reach the museum.

Slightly hard to find, but through the archway by the tourist office in Piazza Arringo, then round to the right and up the grand staircase. Wonderful collection of art works, historical items, furniture et cetera, recreating I suppose the atmosphere of an aristocratic palace. One item that has British associations, is a 13th century cope, originally donated to Ascoli duomo in 1288. We were assisted in our tour by English speaking assistant who appeared really knowledgable about all aspects of the museum and its contents. Entrance fee is very modest, part of the 3 Ascoli museum package (€8 & €5 for over 65s etc), others included being the Contemporary Art, and Ceramic museums. An absolute bargain.
