A circular route that takes in three attractive seaside towns, a pair of picturesque small hill towns, the glorious city of Urbino and plenty
of typical rolling Marche countryside in between. You could take this one slowly, spending a couple of days on it.
Start at bustling Pesaro and take the coast road to Fano. After at least a morning here continue on along the coast to Senigallia, a resort celebrated
for its long strand of "velvet" sand and its attractive old centre.
Now head inland for the hill town of Corinaldo to admire some of the best preserved Medieval walls in the Marche. Wind down from here through delightful countryside heading north-west to Mondavio and its magnificent castle.
On a quiet backroad make for Barchi. Stop here to buy beautiful terracotta pots from the local potter. Now continue on to the homely
town of Fossombrone to wander up its terraces of streets to the ruined Malatesta castle.
From here you can head on to Urbino on the modern main road. Urbino, of course, is an obligatory stop. Now head back home to Pesaro.
