A great place to visit with lots to see but no crowds. The Palazzo Ducale was free and open, although the museum was closed. Plenty of bars and the most delicious gelati.

An amazing medieval small town - with so much to see! Good family run restaurants, and the most incredible attitude to visitors, who are not treated as tourists, but genuinely made welcome. A lovely market on Thursdays, with a marvellous fish stall, (try the fried...More

I was in Urbania for two weeks with Centro Studi Italiani culinary and cultural experience. We stayed in an apartment and ate at quite a few of the restaurants. The townspeople were very friendly. They didn’t speak English so practice up on your Italian! It...More

This is my second visit to Urbania, a small but historic town in Le Marche. Here to learn the language but there is considerable history in line with Urbino. Lovely surrounds with great photo opportunities. Worth a look if in the area.

Urbania does not attract a great number of foreign tourists. Surprisingly there are quite a number of eating places all busy with locals. Most are very good. The town has a very friendly feel and relaxed atmosphere and it is a great base to explore...More

Been here twice, for a combined 5 days. Love the town, its quaintness, proximity to Urbino, and the restaurants and the gelato. All wonderful. I added pictures, take a look -- VISIT if you can.

Not a very big place, but a pleasant 1-2 hour visit. Easy to walk and very pretty landscape. Some of the attractions were closed, but there was enough to get an appreciation of the town.

Even if Fermignano and Urbino claim to be the birth-place of the famous Donato bramante, Urbania,adorns itself with the same 'title'. But it is very well known for its traditional production of majolicas. The town gravitates around the little Oratory of the Carmine where we...More

Bus Service from Urbania to Pesaro (2 Replies)
Does anyone know if there is early bus service from Urbania to Pesaro on Sundays--this is for August? I need to catch a train from Pesaro at 13:00 and I am wondering if I can travel from Urbania by bus to make it.

My daughter will be arriving in Bologna by bus from Urbania and will be staying overnight prior to morning flight. Could someone give me the name(s) of a hotel safe for her that would be easily accesible by taxi from the bus station and that would have airport transfer?

Thank you for your reply. Is this hotel equally close to the train station? I think now she may be ariving by train from Pesaro. My biggest concern is safety, however price is also a factor, so I think a 3 star is what we are looking for.

Hi All; Curious about travelling by train/bus combo-on a Saturday-to CT. Here's the deal: We will have 5 nights left of our trip to Italy at this time. We have Sat-Thurs, departing FCO on a thursday.

I was thinking of a straight (albeit long day of travel)shot to La Spezia, and a night there, followed by two more nights in CT. Following that, I'd have I guess...More
