Day 1
In the morning, tour of Senigallia, a seaside town
that is also rich in history and places of considerable
interest. We will visit the Rocca Roveresca, which

Ercolani, the Foro Annonario and places of interest
in the life of Pope Pius IX, a native of Senigallia.

Mondavio, a medieval village with its distinctive
fortress which hosts a picturesque wax museum
that reconstructs life in the Middle Ages. In the
late afternoon, return to Senigallia, dinner and
overnight stay.

Day 2
After breakfast, departure for Gubbio. Tour of the
town, which was the military capital of the duchy,
with the palace built by Francesco di Giorgio
Martini. The village also deserves a visit for its

of Assisi. Lunch: free time.

and overnight stay.

Day 3
After breakfast, departure for Urbino. The day
will be devoted to the tour of the magnificent
ducal city par excellence, UNESCO World Heritage
Site and seat of the Duchy. The most important

the National Gallery of the Marche, in the Ducal
Palace. Also the hometown of Raffaello Sanzio,
known as Raphael. Lunch: free time.

After breakfast, departure for Fano. Tour of the
seaside town, with clear traces of the Roman
era, such as the arch of Augustus and the Via
Flaminia. We can also visit the Rocca Malatestiana
and the court and tombs of the Malatesta family.

Fossombrone, another Roman city which, however,
also boasts an important palace by Francesco di
Giorgio Martini, commissioned by the dukes of
Urbino. In the late afternoon, return to Senigallia,
