Spiaggia di Velluto

Just back from a relaxing week at the seaside resort and port city of Senigallia in the Marche region along Italy’s Adriatic coastline, I enjoyed seven laid-back days of early morning rises and late night turn-ins.

Noted for its kilometers-long Spiaggia di Velluto (Velvet Beach), sporting the prestigious international Blue Flag designation, Senigallia was the perfect destination for me to experience firsthand the joys of a true Italian seaside vacation and the therapeutic values of saltwater, sun and spaghetti con vongole e cozze.

Here are just a few of the 800+ shots I framed during my stay.  I’ll be showcasing more in a series of upcoming dispatches on Senigallia: what to see, where to stay and what to eat.

  1. Glad you were able to relax, Tom, while I was getting ready to move my entire house full of 28 years-worth of stuff!! 🙂 Really, I am glad. We survived getting everything ready, although I’m not sure the movers survived packing it, and deliver date will be Wednesday. I’ll need some risotto by the time that’s over and more than one bottle of wine!! In the meantime, your beautiful pictures relaxed me this morning.
