The small town preserves the architectural heritage of the ancient times in all its splendor. Urbino has ancient roots, but the first documentation can only be traced back to the third century BC. The "Palazzo Ducale" is an absolute masterpiece of Renaissance art, and today it’s the home of the headquarters of the prestigious "Galleria Nazionale" of the Marches. The "Palazzo" contains several masterpieces such as the "Flagellazione", the "Madonna di Senigaglia" by Piero della Francesca, or the "Muta" by Raffaello Sanzio. The town bears the mark of a long history of art and culture, and you can admire many ancient churches in its streets: the cathedral, rebuilt by Valadier after the earthquake in 1784; the splendid travertine portal of the Church of St. Domenico; the medieval church of St. Francesco with its beautiful Gothic tower and the great altar of Federico Barocci; and the oratory of St. Giuseppe with the famous crib of Brandani. Other important historical buildings are the "Palazzo Albani", and the birthplace of Raffaello, seat of the academy of the same name. At the top of the town you will find the fortress Albornoz with a view of the surrounding hills. On one of the hills lies the church of Bernardino from the fifteenth century, the seat of the duchy mausoleum.

Roberto Host

After gaining some experience, I decided to stay here in the UNESCO World Cultural Heritage of Urbino, with my wife and my two children Luca and Matteo. After the renovation of the family property, I decided to make the house available to travelers and nature lovers. The accommodation is intended for guests who want to escape from the routine of today's life, and spend time in a green environment not too far from larger cities. We support a cultural tour between art, history, and gastronomy. Following the rhythms of the seasons, we also use the wind to take part in beautiful kitesurfing activities.
