Grottammare is also known as the “pearl of the Adriatic”, a name which tells you a lot about the maritime identity of the town. Grottammare has always been a destination for travelers to the Riviera delle Palme, and has been known for over three centuries for the beauty of its surrounding landscapes, its sea, and the historical, artistic and cultural traditions that visitors can discover during their stay. A magnificent beach lined with palm trees, orange trees and oleanders welcomes visitors, but the heart of the town is Piazza Jursaal: situated in the North of the city, it looks directly onto the beach, later merging into Viale Marino where palm trees and the porphyry and Carrara marble floor enhance the beautiful early 20th century liberty-style villas. Grottammare is a town that is to not only be admired but experienced. With its many initiatives, it offers visitors a rich programme of cultural events.
