Collocata nel cuore della citta e la piazza su cui si affaccia imponente il trecentesco Palazzo del Podesta rinominato della Ragione, ora Teatro della Fortuna, la cui facciata e in stile romanico-gotico e il cui interno rifatto nell' 800 e in stile neoclassico. Un'arbitraria aggiunta ottocentesca e la classicheggiante merlatura. All'esterno domina la torre civica ricostruita dopo la guerra al posto dell'antico campanile. Attraverso il monumentale Arco Borgia-Cybo innalzato alla fine del sec. XV., dal Palazzo del Podesta si passa all'androne che conduce alla Corte Malatestiana. Sul lato occidentale della piazza c'e la Fontana della Fortuna dall'ampio bacino mistilineo a marmi colorati, interamente rinnovato nel 1697-99 dal veneziano Ludovico Torresini. La fontana e ornata con la statuetta bronzea della Dea Fortuna modellata e fusa nel 1593 dall'urbinate Donnino Ambrosi Poco lontano, sul lato meridionale della piazza, fa bella mostra di se la piccola ed elegante facciata protobarocca in cotto e pietra arenaria della Chiesa di S. Silvestro opera forse dell'architetto Filippo Terzi.
Fano is a small seaside town for families and the Piazza, while surrounded by ancient history is broad and lively while still relaxing. i relaxed with a 1/2 ltr weiss beer, delicious on that hot muggy night.There are numerous bars serving their outdoor tables, very little traffic and a sense of fun pervading the space. The eye catching 12th c. church of San Silvestro is found on the square, it is situated near the outdoor tables so that one may examine its intricacies while munching aperitif hour nibbles and sipping a cold one-is there really a better way to tour the sights?

If you have the time, make a visit! This monastery has gorgeous views of Fano and the sea below. Since it's a mountain do not take a bike because it's steep but a vigorous walk or a short car drive are good. There's a little shop for cute souvenirs and the whole monastery has a very calming feeling.

I really liked this library, specially its very modern and clear atrium and entrance lounge, made of glass and steel structure, even though it's not a very touristic site in the city. Also very nice the way they divide the rooms to the kids and teenagers by age.

Our family has been coming here during our local stay each summer for the past 8 years - and no trip would be complete without multiple visits to the Pino Bar.
With more than 40 flavours of homemade ice creams and sorbets to choose from, one can never go wrong!
Pino Bar may sell items other than ice cream, but frankly, who cares!!!

We were unable to find the gates to the church open after 4 days of trying but had an opportunity to admire the sarcophogus of the Malatesti who were the dominant family of this region centuries back. Even a partial strained glimpse we got through the massive barred gate of the inside of this roofless church is worth a visit if you are in Fano.

Unbelievable attention has been paid to built the 50 diorama (scenes) representing stories of the Bilble and the Gospel. There is always a mechanical part of the scene which makes it even more interesting.
Very well explained in Italian, not sure if they have written pamphlets in other languages.
It took us about 30 minutes to go trough the scenes and explain them to the kids.

All of the Beaches in Fano are great, and this one is no exception.
The water is very blue, and the weather was great.
As a Canadian, I felt that the water was more than warm enough to swim in during late May, but apparently Italians beg to differ, because the umbrellas were not yet set up when I was there lol
