We got more than we expected. A long winding road, lots of places you can stop for a view into the country but even better over the sea. There are some small villages where you can stop for a drink or more for a fair price.

Beautiful little town with astonishing view on the Adriatic. From Fiorenzuola del Focara it is possible to take a steep walk down (30 min appr.) to one of the few regional Beaches still unspoiled by tourism.

You cannot miss this if you go to Pesaro. It is impressively displayed on a shiny surface with the sea as a backdrop. Don't miss the villino next to it. The town is really lovely as is the beach.

If you like Art Nouveau than this is a must to go around this building. Unfortnately you can't get in, but from outside, you could have in idea about the inner house. It is very rare that you have liberty (the Italian Art Noveau) in such a splendid form

An incredible wood library with an archeological museum on the first floor: just that kind of situation that makes you want to be a student again but in Pesaro!

Villa Caprile

Reviewed By italian_in_NY - Saratoga, California

Have visited every summer with kids and guests in the last 4 years.
Open in the afternoon from 4 to 7, it's a great way to cool off the summer heat after a day at the beach.
Used as a professional high school for 9 months a year, the Gardens tour are given by nice school students (might be challenging if you need them in English).
Kids always have a blast with the water games and spend over half hour after the tour in the "theatre" playig hide and seek.
Plenty of parking, bring a change of clothes of you want to experience all the water games.

You wouldn't think that in such a small city like Pesaro, you will find such a nice museum. Beside the Bellini altar, which is amazing, there are very nice paitings, and of course ceramics, as Pesaro is wll-known ceramic city.

We found this to fit in neatly with our walking tour of the Centro Storico. In particular the pigeons seem to be using the same site for their refreshment stop!

Really one of the best motorcycle museums around. Shows the family connection from the beginning to the present day although modern Benellii motorbikes are made in China. Quite atmospheric and the staff are really knowledgeable and friendly.
