What (and where) to eat

Italy is the land of chefs and epicures and the Piceno definitely mirrors this tradition. Your day will begin with a big breakfast here at the Relais: a buffet for you with the best fresh products from our land, just out of the oven from the environmentally-friendly Bakery Partemi.

The other good times of the day can easily take place in the living room of your apartment using the facilities in the kitchen to cook the products that you bought. Near the Relais, you can find the Shopping Center Orologio and some shops selling local products. In San Benedetto del Tronto, you can buy fresh seafood directly at the market and get some cooking suggestions from the fishmonger's.
