Many ideas on what to do and see between the Marche and the Emilia- Romagna regions

It is absolutely wonderful to stay on the beach in Gabicce Mare and to dedicate you time to “dolce far nulla” (Sweet idleness), by spending most of your time in total relaxation. However, it is also important to take into account that you are in an area, on the border between the Marche and the Emilia-Romagna regions, where there are so many things to do and to see, so when you decide to organize an excursion, you are truly spoilt for choice!


This is an example of a perfectly-preserved Medieval hamlet. Gradara Castle that dominates the entire surrounding panorama, once hosted the most famous families of the Medieval and Renaissance periods from the Emilia-Romagna and Marche hinterland areas: the Malatesta, Sforza, Borgia, Della Rovere families and it was the venue where great historic and legendary events took place.


This is an authentic jewel dating back to Medieval times which still preserves its characteristic features as a hamlet as well as its streets.

Without doubt, the following are worth visiting: The Ducal Palace of Federico of Montefeltro  and the Marche National Gallery with works by Raphael and Piero della Francesca.


This is situated on the Marche Apennines and it includes a broad-ranging Karst complex on eight different geological levels with a marvellous series of caves and tunnels, stalactites and stalagmites which for thousands of years have been preserved intact thanks to the slow, spectacular process of calcification.

The Republic of San Marino

The most ancient Republic in the World offers not only historic-artistic reasons for visiting it, but also great occasions to go shopping as well as to enjoy parties and events held throughout the entire summer period. The following are worth visiting: the Palazzo Pubblico, the Basilica del Santo as well as the famous three Towers that dominate the entire surrounding panorama that can be reached also by cable car.

San Leo

This is a very old city that was the county seat of Montefeltro  and here there is the Medieval Fortress, which is now a museum and an art gallery – where the legendary alchemist Cagliostro was imprisoned and who died there in 1795.

Monte San Bartolo Nature Park
