Urbino: A secret Italian hilltop town
Share

Written by : Mariano Pallottini| 0 | Travel


Urbino is up a very steep hill, lined with ancient stone houses and tall towers. Wonderful buildings surround the piazza, no loud ads to be seen.Central Italy has three provinces: Tuscany and Umbria are well-known, Le Marche less so. Each has a hilltop town listed among UNESCO’s World Heritage sites. Tuscany has San Gimignano, Umbria has Assisi, and Le Marche has Urbino. Its remarkable legacy of independent Renaissance culture is the reason for inclusion on the list.San Gimignano and Assisi are indisputably beautiful. They’re also busy. Especially on lovely summer days.
