We were staying in Grottamare visiting friends just after Christmas and we had a walk around the old village one evening. It was amazing. The Christmas lights were lit and the place looked like just out of a novel. Sadly there are very few people living there and lots of buildings are run down. However, there are a few restaurants...

Go by foot - cars not recommended. A good climb up from the sea front, but well worth it for the stunning views and impressive architecture.

We have eaten here before and the food was always very good. The location is gorgeous. The old town of Grottammare is fairly high up. If you eat outside the restaurant you sit on a terrace/small square and have a a very good view along the coast. The food makes a change from the more typical (but excellent) seafood available...

Atmosphere of real Italy is here! Grottammare Alta is a tiny town on the hill with amazing views! And if you don't know what you prefer more, the beach or the mountains - it's for you!

If you want a nice place to stay, choose Grottamare instead of San Benedetto...It is finer, nicer and less touristic! We enjoyed our stay there perfectly, take a look at the old town on the mountain!

We spent a few hours in the Old Town at Grottammare....both in the evening and daytime. It really is the most perfect little spot in Italy. It literally took our breath away. The view is gorgeous, the buildings stunning...everything about it was just perfect. Highly recommended!!

A very nice place to visit, and considered as one of the most beautiful villages of Italy. In July here you'll find the annual buskers festival, when the village will be crowded of people, but very nice to visit.

Beautiful old town! No cars permitted in the old city ... A nice view from the top of the whole valley and the sea! Small roads with a lot of flowers!

We have visited this place during our stay in San Benedetto. I can certify that because of Borgo Antico Grottammare was much more unique than San Benedetto. The winery with the beautifull views was unfortunetley closed. All in all this place is worth visit and take few pictures.

Come at night, before it gets too dark, and enjoy the view, take a walk in the narrow streets (no cars :-) ) Top it up with a nice dinner at "Osteria dell Arancio", at the peacefull and romantic city square
