The Magic Summer of Renaissance Towns
Villages in the Montefeltro area which you HAVE TO visit in the Summer.
The territory of Montefeltro hides wonderful villages that are waiting to be discovered by you! Here is a little guide for you to frame your summer with the red of the “calanco” landforms between Marche and Romagna:
- San Leo, in the province of Rimini, is definitely at the top of our list of suggested villages. Its fortress, the Forte, dominates over the Montefeltro area (with a 360 ° view that reaches as far as the sea) and deserves a visit, which should definitely include the Museum of Arms and the Art Gallery. To reach it you must walk along a narrow road carved in stone: otherwise, it is inaccessible. The centre of the village is located further down, where there are also inns where you can taste the typical dishes of the area, from roast rabbit to tortelloni, the traditional stuffed pasta of the area.
- Sassocorvaro, in the province of Pesaro, together with its hamletMercatale, are pleasant and romantic places to spend a relaxing day The artificial lake at the foot of the village (where you can practice sport fishing) is the mirror to the imposing Rocca Ubaldinesca, a breathtaking and unforgettable view. For dinner you cannot miss the appointment at “La Cotta”, a typical Brasserie where you can taste craft beer and the best homemade pasta.
- Urbino is the destination of many tourists, especially in the summer. Its majestic Palazzo Ducale and the Duomo (Cathedral) definitely deserve a few pictures, especially at sunset . For an even more stunning view, I suggest an aperitif at the Albornoz Fortress. At the National Gallery of the Marche you can admire some paintings by Piero della Francesca, Raffaello Sanzio and other famous artists. Urbino hosts temporary exhibitions all the year round, usually inside the Casa di Raffaello, Raphael’s home, which makes it even more interesting to attend them.
