Vinoturismo Villa Verdicchio in Cupramontana can be reached by car from the Autostrada Adriatico
(which runs from north to south Italy).
Near Ancona, take the Strada Statale 76 (SS76) from Ancona towards Rome.
There you take exit 15 Cupramontana – monte Roberto from where a beautiful panoramic route takes you along the SP9, five hundred and five metres uphill to the heart of the Castelli di Jesi.
Once in Cupramontana, stay on the SP9, but the road turns left down the hill back to Via San Bartolomeo. Follow the road for a few hundred metres until you can turn right into Via (or contrada) Ripa. Vinoturismo Villa Verdicchio is a little further on the left.
Attention: often the GPS tells you to turn right into Contrada Ripa as soon as you are on Via San Bartolomeo. You can, but it’s a tough descent on a narrow ‘strada biancha’ (gravel road).
We recommend the route we describe above as it is a lot more comfortable.
The nearest airport is Ancona Falconara where you fly with Ryan air from Brussels Charleroi and Düsseldorf Weeze, among others. This airport is a 25-minute drive from Cupramontana.
