A beautifully preserved and restored castle near the city of Cattolica. The forts are awesome down to the village. Gradara also has some shopping opportunities, mostly souvenirs etc and a few restaurants and cafes.

The castle is a fair size and very pleasant to walk around for an hour or so - there're some lovely paintings and ceilings and some titbits of history about Lucrezia Borgia, 'Paolo and Francesca' etc. There're some nice views of the castle and walls...More

One of the finest Castles I've visited. It has the lot: A small medieval village in front of it and than the towering impressive Castle with a pretty art collection. Worth a halve days visit. We got there by little train from Cattolica. Nice!

If you visit this area Gradara is worth a visit. We were staying in Cattolica and it was definitely worth the short drive. Beautiful shops, bars and restaurant. But particularly the castle and views. Stunning.

Very enjoyable time at the castle in the evening. Luckily, the evening my wife and I went, it was open quite late (pink night). Castle is in great shape, lots of things to see, good explanations. Not too big.

This makes a great day trip from Pesaro. My husband loves Pesaro's beaches, I want activities, so I took bus #130 from the bus/train station in Pesaro, about one hour which drops passengers off right at Castello di Gradara's parking lot. Walk straight up hill...More

worth a 1-3 hour visit for real medioeval feeling in a nice landscape - but only few parking lots available so better visiting early in the morning (but shops might not be open) ...

There are several parking lots in town and most of them are free. Just follow the blue "P" roadsigns.
