Urbino and its Ducal Palace

Only 38 km from us, the city of Urbino, World Heritage Site, is the pinnacle of the Renaissance art and architecture. In this small town, nestled on a high sloping hillside, artists such as Raffaello and Piero Della Francesca created an outstanding urban complex, influencing the cultural development of the rest of Europe. Here you can visit the most ambitious project of the Duke Federico da Montefeltro, the Ducal Palace of Urbino. Currently it has become a young and dynamic town thanks to its prestigious university and the exchange with international students.
