Art and Journey: the perfect combination to discover Le Marche Region.

The discovery of Le Marche Region through the Beauty of Art starts from Sassoferrato, well-known for its Roman archeological site “Sentinum”, along with its Archeological Museum and the Portrait gallery.

Driving north, arriving at the Cesano river, you will discover Pergola, a picturesque village nestled in the mountains. It is famous thanks to its Museum, which houses an important Contemporary Art Collection and, above all, the Guilt Bronzes from Cartoceto – which are the only surviving Roman gilt bronze equestrian group.

Driving through the Val Metauro, you will then arrive at Fossombrone and the Furlo Pass, a natural gorge on the ancient Roman Road Via Flaminia.

Last but not least, you will discover one of the most important place in Le Marche Region thanks to its glorious Renaissance past: Urbino, UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1998 and education hub on the cutting edge with its “Carlo Bo University”.
Together with Florence, Urbino was namely one of the most powerful Seigniories during the Renaissance under the aegis of Federico II, Duke of Montefeltro, who let the rocky village become “The Ideal City” through artist Piero della Francesca’s creative and architectural work.
