Urbino

Rimini and Urbino are within a couple of hours up the coastal A14 autostrada.

The beautiful town of Urbino is one of Italy’s most fascinating from a historical, artistic and cultural point of view. Many famous painters came to the home of the ruling Montefeltro family from all over Italy; Raphael, Federico Barocci, and Bramante were all born in Urbino and the exquisite art of majolica was developed here. The university is one of Italy’s oldest, still flourishing today. “Must visits” include the Ducal Palace, the Cathedral, and Raphael’s House. Well worth a day trip.
