Known as the “City of the Bike” for the beautiful network of scenic bike paths and nicknamed “City of Music” for its strong link with composer Gioacchino Rossini, Pesaro is a lively and very hospitable town. The Adriatic Sea laps this coast that offers 7 km of equipped and free beaches close to the old town centre with its elegant streets, beautiful palaces and museums. Important events enliven the summer in Pesaro, such as the Rossini Opera Festival and the International Film Festival.
Discovering this destination has to include an excursion to the Monte San Bartolo Natural Park and a visit to Fano and Senigallia. In Fano you will enjoy the best fish broth of the Riviera, which even has its own international festival, and in Senigallia you will be charmed by a velvety beach and crystal-clear sea.
You will also find beautiful villages worthy of a visit scattered among the gentle hills of the hinterland, such as Corinaldo, Mondavio and Gradara.
Art and culture, sports and nature, good food and relaxation, all this and much more awaits you between Pesaro and the Riviera delle Colline.
