SIXTH STAGE

From Offagna to Sirolo

Sirolo
Spiaggia Urbani, e promontorio del Conero

Final stage of TraversaMarche, with arrival on the coast.

The path starts from Offagna, through hilly landscapes, descending towards Ponte dell'Aspio, surrounded by greenery.

You quickly cross the valley floor to the Aspio Terme area, where industry and commerce, and related traffic, are bustling, then you find a rural landscape again, and you go up to the beautiful village of Camerano, thus entering the Conero Regional Park.

A down- and up-hill path leads to Massignano, from where you descend the slopes of Monte Conero to Sirolo, the arrival point.
