The thriving and elegant centre of Jesi is one of the most beguiling towns in Le Marche, Italy, and boasts a sophisticated old centre and lively cultural life that should not be missed. Its most striking feature is a belt of massive 14thC walls built on Roman foundations, strengthened with buttresses and impregnable towers, and topped by houses. Jesi's largest square is dominated by the town's 18thC theatre, Teatro Pergolesi, home to a prestigous autumn opera season and named after the composer Pergolesi who was born here in 1710.
