Antiques markets within easy reach of Montefiore.
If you are staying in Montefiore and want to take home a souvenir with a little more originality than the usual mugs and sunhats, this could be the perfect day out for you and your family.
In nearby towns, street markets are held during the summer, selling everything from bric-a-brac to valuable antique pieces at reasonable prices. Throughout the Marche there are over twenty such street fairs, but here are three within less than an hour’s drive.
