Le Marche, Italy has vineyards, mountains, beaches, and “some of the best fish dishes in Italy,” Budd said. It’s close to the Adriatic Sea, yet still close enough for a weekend trip to Florence, Milan or Venice. And guess what that is? Ding! Le Marche. Budd said you can rent a place for as cheap as $700 a month, though that rises to $1,500 the closer you get to the coast.
