THE SURROUNDINGS

Le Marche, their splendid hinterland, the ancient Flaminian way, offer visitors various itineraries of art and culture, nature and more besides, sporting activities, folklore and ancient gastronomic traditions. A land which could be a treasure both for the young and the less young.

Furthermore, from Passo del Furlo, one can easily reach splendid cities of art and culture such as Gubbio and Assisi, testimonies to the mastery and creativity of Giotto; Perugia with its Priori Palace and Monumental Fountain; Urbino, the ideal Renaissance city and birthplace of Raffaello; San Marino, the smallest and oldest republic in the world; San Leo, where the Count of Cagliostro was imprisoned; Gradara, in whose castle Paolo and Francesca lived out their tragic love story; Fonte Avellana, where there is one of the oldest monasteries of Camadolesian monks, and the Grotte di Frasassi, a subterranean monument to nature.
