The chief-city of the homonym province is a seaside resort lying between two hills, at the mount of the Foglia river. It is the home town of Rossini, the musician, and boasts the best artistic and music traditions in the whole of the Adriatic coast. Its beach reaches for more that four kilometres and the town is fully equipped with first-class sports and tourist facilities.
The name of this very ancient town-which preserves many evident traces of its histoiy- comes from a temple sacred to the Fortune. On its 20 kilometre littoral, which is distinguished by a picturesque canal-port, there are large parks.
It is set high up on two hills and is surrounded by the Apennines Mountains which lie as an amphitheatre. This town rich in culture and art preserves almost entirely the features of a medieval and Renaissance centre and holds many master-pieces of enormous value. The Palazzo Ducale is the seat of the National Gallery of the Marches, paintings by Paolo Uccello, Piero della Francesca, Raphael, Titian ecc.
The caves offer spectacular scenic effects and easy walking. The visit to the caves lasts approximately one hour, with free guides.
This lonely place, situated in the Montefeltro district, on a sheer rock surrounded by mountains, can only be reached by a way cut into the rock; it preserves its medieval appearance almost completely, una Pinacoteca.
