Cagli is an ancient town of 15,000 people, nestled on the eastern slopes of Italys Appennini Mountains in the little-known Marche region in central Italy. The Adriatic coast and its beaches are a 40-minute bus ride away, but Cagli has plenty of attractions amid its small cobblestone streets: shopping, a gem of an opera house, a weekly street market, numerous cafes and amazing restaurants, mountain hiking, a modern fitness center, bike rentals, excellent medical care, two hotels, a waterfall, river swimming, and a fantastic, lively piazza. Hidden from tourists, Cagli offers a unique opportunity to explore authentic Italian life.
Cagli has a rich history dating back well over 2000 years. Cagli became part of the Roman Empire in 295 BC and quickly grew in prominence as a vital stop on the ancient Via Flaminia, one of Rome's earliest and most important roads. After the fall of the Roman Empire, Caglis strategic location made it a popular staging ground for battles. In 1287, the city was destroyed by fire in a battle among noble Italian families but was rebuilt two years later under orders from Pope Nicholas IV. Various noble families held Cagli until it was incorporated into the Papal States in the 17th Century, with it eventually becoming part of united Italy in 1860.
