Casa Leopardi, Recanati

#1 of 298 in Things to do in Province of Macerata
Must see · Specialty Museum · Museum
The vineyards of Casa Leopardi blanket the Recanati slopes that face the sea. You can tour the winery amidst the vines to see the fermenting process and cellars. First, though, your erudite guide will introduce you to the Leopardi history. The family has been cultivating wines since 1100, mainly for personal consumption. Family documents, however, show that the Leopardi palace cellars stored local varieties rather similar to today's. For travelers who use our world travel planner, Recanati holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the Casa Leopardi and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.

  • Of all the things suggested in the ticket the house itself with the library is the only one worth visiting. However you cannot take pictures there which is a bit of a shame nowadays
  • There is not much to add: if you are in Recanati (or just visiting the Marche countryside), you can't forget to pay a visit to Giacomo's house. The biblioteca is an amazing travel back in time and the place where his poetry is born. Highly recommended.
