Known as Fanum Fortunae in Roman times, the city today is a fairly well-known coastal resort and one of the most important Adriatic fishing ports. Fano is a tourist destination for those looking for quality of life, with a first rate cultural, historical and environmental heritage, enabling visitors within a distance of a few kilometres to enjoy the sea as well as the delightful hilly inland countryside. The port divides the coast of Fano into two, with Sassonia beach to the east and the sandy Lido to the west. A number of other wide beaches and small bays are to be found along the coast on both sides of the town at Fosso Sejore, Metaurilia, Torrette and Marotta and provide welcoming natural environments the tourist.

Gradara Castle was built between the 11th and 15th centuries and was the scene of continuing conflict between the Malatesta and Montefeltro families before falling under control of the Sforza family. However its place in history has been secured thanks not so much to these warring families but to the great poet Dante. In the Divine Comedy, in the fifth Canto in the Inferno, he recounts the tragic love affair between Paolo and Francesca, which stands as a timeless symbol for generations of lovers. Their passionate affair took place here at Gradara Castle and their chamber in the castle still has a melancholy atmosphere which remains just as poignant today.

In the great art city of Urbino, every street and alleyway holds some interest to the visitor. Its main attractions are so numerous that the city itself provides quite enough for a tour in its own right. Urbino is inextricably linked with the Montefeltro family and with Raphael, who provide the central theme for any visit to the city. The Ducal Palace, the residence of the Dukes of Montefeltro, dominates the hill town, creating a mixture of splendour and awe to the first time visitor, just as Duke Federico had originally intended. The palace now houses the Galleria Nazionale delle Marche with a vast collection of masterpieces including works by such artists as Piero della Francesca, Raphael and the Flemish painter Justus of Ghent. After visiting the palace, which includes the Dukes extraordinary studioli, decorated in trompe l'oeil panelling, the tour continues on to the medieval and Renaissance districts of the town with their many interesting churches, including San Domenico, Sant'Agostino and San Francesco. A number of ancient lay brotherhoods, known as confraternities, have left fascinating legacy throughout the city. It was they who were responsible for the construction of a number of magnificent oratories that still survive today, including the Oratory San Giovanni Battista, the Oratory of the Confraternita di San Giuseppe and the oratory of Santa Croce. You can also find traces of Raphael's early life in Urbino. The painter's birthplace, in Via Raffaello, stands a short distance away from the main piazza, where you can see the rooms where the artist painted his first works.

Travelling along the Flaminian Way from Fano towards Rome, we arrive at the Furlo Tunnel, at the foot of the Furlo Gorge. The Gorge cuts through what was once a single mass of rock. Over millions of years the River Candigliano has driven a path through it, leaving a deep fissure in the rock. This is but one reason why the mountains of this area offer so many interesting things to see. Above all is the richness of its nature. Furlo is the home of many wild animals of great ecological importance. (including the wolf, golden eagle, Montagu's harrier (circus pygargus), pellegrin falcon, sparrow hawk (accipiter nisus), Cornish chough (pyrrhocorax pyrrhocorax) and wall creeper (tichodroma muraria)) as well as plants of botanical interest (including the moehringa papulosa and salix apenninica). In addition, there are 2500 hectares of state owned forest and two plant protection areas where natural habitats are in the process of development. Against this magnificent natural background it is possible to trace back the natural history of the area which is plainly visible in the limestone cliffs of the gorge. Among many other interesting aspects of the area are the ancient farming traditions out of which the more recent culinary culture of the truffle has grown. The mountains of Furlo and nearby Acqualagna are among the main areas in central Italy for growing the black truffle (tartufo nero) and white truffle (tartufo bianco pregiato).

A journey to admire the extraordinary beauty of the Parco Naturale di Frasassi and the Parco della Gola Rossa is certainly worthwhile. To reach Genga, take the A14 motorway as far as the 'Ancona Nord' exit and then head inland along the Ancona-Rome dual carriageway as far as the Genga- Sassoferrato turn. Here, in the spectacular Frasassi Gorge, are the Frasassi Caves, a place which attracts more visitors than anywhere else. This series of underground caves has been described as among the most beautiful in the world. It was discover in 1971 by the CAI Speleological Association from Ancona. Realising that this was a place of rare outstanding beauty it was decided within a space of three years to open the caves to the public. Over the years the tourist route through the caves has been extended and improved in order to highlight the colours and form of the stalactites and stalagmites as well as the natural presence of water and its majestic rock vaults. The caves are open throughout the year (except for 1st January, 24th and 25th December). In 1997, Frasassi became part of the Parco Naturale Regionale della Gola della Rossa e di Frasassi, the largest protected area in the region. A journey around the park reveals a rich historical and artistic heritage concealed in a fascinating, peaceful landscape which is still healthy and unspoiled. This natural scenery stands in the even larger Esino-Frasassi mountain area, which comprises the towns of Arcevia, Fabriano, Genga and Serra San Quirico, places of great historical, archaeological and artistic interest.

The Fortress of San Leo was built in the Middle Ages and it was here at the end of the first Millennium, that Germanic rulers gave birth to the Holy Roman Empire. The fortress itself was enlarged in the 16th Century by the great Siena military architect Francesco di Giorgio Martini under Duke Federico II da Montefeltro. It was here, in this impregnable castle, that the famous adventurer Giuseppe Balsamo, better known as Count Cagliostro, lived out his last days of imprisonment. The facts and legends surrounding the life of this extraordinary alchemist, doctor, magician and freemason are hard to separate. It ended with his sentence to death by the Holy Inquisition for heresy. His sentence was commuted to life imprisonment which he served here at San Leo. But this was to bring him little comfort. He died a long agonising death, imprisoned first in the castle's so-called Treasury Room and then confined in the 'pozzetto', where he died after four long years, refusing to take the sacrament.
