Day 3 Urbino & Pesaro

We'll travel into the Italian region of Le Marche today on an included excursion. Our first stop is the hill town of Urbino, an enchanting jumble of medieval and renaissance houses, churches and palazzos. The splendid 15th century Palazzo Ducale was built by some of the finest craftsmen of the time and towers above the rooftops. We'll join a Local Guide for a tour of this architectural masterpiece.
Later we'll visit Pesaro, a pretty town on the Adriatic coast and the birthplace of Rossini. The composer was so fond of Pesaro that he left the town all of his possessions, which are now housed in Casa Rossini, a museum celebrating his life.

Day 5 Departure

We'll leave San Marino this morning for the drive into Emilia Romagna and the Italian city of Bologna.
