With a bilingual guide through villages, ancient relics and the sea to discover fascinating places rich in history
Enjoy the sea at sunset in Gabicce and then climb inside the fortified village of Gradara with its Castello dell’amore (Castle of Love), relax while admiring the magical reflections of the ponte della Concordia (Concordia bridge) over the Metauro river in Fossombrone, stroll hand in hand through the historic centre of Cagli, until you reach Sassocorvaro, the city of love that preserves the relics of the patron saint of lovers, Saint Valentine.
The charm of villages rich in art and culture, the sea and the wonders of nature, picturesque landscapes, places where great love stories have been lived: this and much more can be offered to the visitor by the Romantic Itinerary, a tourist promotion route created by Confcommercio Marche Nord as part of the project Itinerario della Bellezza (Itinerary of Beauty) in the Province of Pesaro and Urbino.
After the success of the first edition, the second version was presented, much more than a guide, expanded and renewed, in Italian and English, which sees the entry of the Municipality of Sassocorvaro Auditore, which joins Cagli, Fossombrone, Gabicce, Gradara.
“Within the province of Pesaro and Urbino, in the extraordinary and mysterious Marche Region, where beauty is combined with infinity – points out the director of Confcommercio Amerigo Varotti– there are places and towns that to define romantic is just an obvious statement. How else can we define a seaside town like Gabicce Mare with its golden beach, its many small restaurants for candlelit evenings, its strolls through shops and boutiques and the Regional Park of Mount San Bartolo with its paths, inlets and breathtaking views? The Itinerario Romantico (Romantic Itinerary) is a route, a journey through one of the most beautiful and fascinating areas in Italy, where you can experience or relive passions and love”.
An itinerary that joins the other Confcommercio projects.
“Like the Itinerary of Beauty, the Archaeological Itinerary and the Itinerary of the Fortresses, they are precious tools to enhance this territory. The promotion is yielding excellent results, with many travel agencies interested in the places on the itineraries and many visitors attracted by our beauty, just think that several villages and museums recorded record numbers of visitors last summer. Routes that fully respond to what an increasing number of tourists are looking for safe places, where they can enjoy authentic, genuine experiences that can give emotions“.
