The Le Marche region is extraordinarily lovely. The vistas that I was treated to during the drive over the Appenine mountains from Umbria to Le Marche are simply the most beautiful views that I have ever encountered in Italy. In my opinion the hilly vistas offer a real experience of unspilt Italy. Urbino itself is a majestic walled medieval city just a bit southwest of Pesaro. It's Renaissance culture can still be seen in the streets and festivals of the city and is evident in the facade of Palazzo Ducale. When I visited the town was preparing to celebrate the festival of the Aquilone - the festival of the kites - and each contrade was flying its flags through out the city. I highly recommend stopping in the main piazza to enjoy a "Cresica" - typical flat bread of the area - I have to say it was one of my greatest food discoveries in the city! I plan on returning next year to Urbino to explore some more!
