Immerse yourself in the cradle of the renaissance

Urbino, the pride of the Italian Renaissance is the birthplace of the architect Bramante and the famous artist Raffaello. Its Palazzo Ducale, the jewel of the Italian Renaissance, has been home to the National Gallery of the Marche since 1912. Urbino also houses the Raffaello Academy, countless churches of considerable importance, as well as the Rocca di Albornoz. You will visit an extraordinary urban and architectural combination: the castle of Gradara, elected the most beautiful Italian village of 2018. And then, the medieval city of Mondavio, located on top of a hill overlooking the Adriatic Sea and the Apennines. The city is still surrounded by its ancient walls and defended by a mighty fortress designed by the architect Francesco di Giorgio Martini. Today the fortress houses the Museum of historical re-enactment and armory, with costumes and weapons ranging from the XV to the XVIII century. Finally, we recommend a guided tour of Fano, a city rich in historical and artistic testimonies.
