“A jewel in the city centre”
Reviewed June 4, 2014

Senigallia city centre is really peculiar, however people do not expect to find a fortress in the middle of it. The castle is really well- preserved and people can visit it, at least the open areas. The view from the towers is nice too and oversees the adiacent piazza. Firthermore the area around is full of nice bars and restaurants; very enjoyable atmosphere.

“Lovely fortress,fine sand at the beach and great little snack bars”
Reviewed May 11, 2014

First a blurb about the town with beautiful avenues to walk along and with a wide beach. Senigallia is the most interesting tourist strip in coastal Marches. Its attraction as a beach resort is underlined by a slogan "the velvet beach". A lot of its sister towns are merely interesting in 'passing one'.
But back to our visit,and the reason why people flock here is the the very fine sand on its beaches. there are good hotels, characterised by professionality and bon-ton.

We started our tour from the Rocca Roveresca,1480,a square shaped building with four imposing cylindrical towers on its corners. Inside we delved into the charming communication trenches and dungeons and a very interesting exhibition of contemporary art,which is good relief from the Renaissance seriousness.

In Piazza del Duca,we loitered while enjoying Fountain of the lions,almost in ruin and the attractive Palazzetto Baviera containing some splendid stuccoes. From Nenni street there is a lovely neo-classic arcade and the Town hall,from which to explore the Muzio Oddi,the tower with the clock and the barrel-vault on the right side of the building,a lovely Fountain of Neptune,the symbol of the town.
I was not aware,that this town was the birth place of Pope Pio IX,but soon realised the stamp of his presence in the museum and sacred art Gallery. I love works by Barocci and Palma il Giovane. At this point one has to pay homage to the churches that abound but our interest was skewered towards the surrounding hills with its charming agricultural life

“Very educational”
Reviewed July 21, 2013

This is a wonderfully restored/preserved fortress. The free audio guides are very helpful and assisted us to place this fortess in the context that led to its being built. We felt as though we were walking through time.
