Provincia di Pesaro e Urbino

Overview

Where culture and history meet the sea

The province of Pesaro and Urbino in the Marche region is one of Italy's historical provinces.

Overlooking the Adriatic Sea, Pesaro is a typical seaside town but what makes it special is not only its seven kilometres of beach on equipped and free coastline. Its historical centre guards an important artistic heritage. Not to be missed are the mosaics of the Cathedral and a tour of the places of Rossini's memory; indeed, Gioacchino Rossini was born in Pesaro in 1792. Two cultural events bring tourists and enthusiasts to the city: the Rossini Opera Festival and the Mostra Internazionale del Nuovo Cinema.

Wandering around the alleys, buildings and squares of Urbino, it is easy to see why its historical centre is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Start your tour at the Ducal Palace, which is more of a fortified city than a palace. Here, one of the iconic paintings of Italian art, Piero della Francesca's Ideal City, is preserved. If you are an art lover, don't miss the Galleria Nazionale delle Marche.

Capital city but also small villages, Gradara and its fortress, and unspoilt nature such as that of the Sasso Simone and Simoncello Park: the province of Pesaro-Urbino holds great treasures. From Fano to Montefeltro, from Gabicce to the San Bartolo Riviera.

Finally, for lovers of outdoor sports, 20 km from Urbino, the Marmitte dei Giganti offer a real show. Book a canoe tour to enjoy the beauty of the gorge from the inside. Combined with a trek inside the Furlo Gorge State Nature Reserve, the views are breathtaking.
