urbino-marches-ducal-palaceThe first thing that comes to mind when you think about Italy is probably the excellent food, its beautiful landscapes, monuments and history. Urbino, named a UNESCO heritage site in 1998, surrounded by hills in the southern area of Montefeltro in the Marche region, contains all of this.

The ancient name of this small, historic city was Urbinum Metaurense, and during the Gothic Wars of the VI century it became an important strategic stronghold. In medieval times, the town was conquered by the Montefeltro family and during this period beautiful mansions and monuments were built.

Urbino was even the birthplace of Raffaello Sanzio, the famous Italian Renaissance painter, born in 1483. His house, with the typical architecture of the XV century, is still visitable.
