Other Towns in Pesaro-Urbino Province I Have Visited

These are towns I've visited in the Pesaro-Urbino province, in addition to Urbania.

Acqualagna - We went browsing for shoes here in this town. Hosts the Annual Truffle Fair in fall.
Fano - Only came here once, and it was late during a cold April evening. However, all the Italians seemed to think Summer was in full-swing! Everyone was celebrating on the beaches already; I can't imagine how crazy it becomes during the real summer months. They even have a site for tourists!
Fossombrone - Took the bus here, walked around town and sought some ancient ruins. For Fossombrone's official site (in Italian), click here.
Pesaro - When I first arrived in Pesaro, it seemed so small. But after my time in Urbania, it seemed to monstruous. I guess it's all relative. Pesaro, like all seaside towns, becomes busy during the summer. This is their official tourism site for more info.
Urbino - Visited the birthplace of Raphael several times, as there was bus service daily to it from Urbania. This English site is a good welcome to Urbino. If you can read Italian, visit Urbino's site.

If possible, stop by Gola del Furlo. Beautifuly scenery, no tourists. Just clear blue-green water set against the limestone cliffs. You'll need a car for this. Dine at FURLO (Tel. 0172/700096, fax 0721/700117, Via Furlo 66) or at LA GINESTRA (Tel. 0172/797033, fax 0721/700040, Closed Monday and January).
