I’d like to see Urbino, birthplace of the great artist Raphael, and a World Heritage Site.
It lies just across the Mountains of Moon from Umbria in the Marche province of Italy. Wikipedia describes Urbino as being “notable for a remarkable historical legacy of independent Renaissance culture, especially under the patronage of Federico da Montefeltro, duke of Urbino from 1444 to 1482.”
I’m hoping that when I’m in Anghiari, I can convince my friends that it would make a nice day trip.
Google Maps shows 3 different routes, ranging from 80 kilometres to about 95 kilometres in length, but the trip can take anywhere from 90 minutes to 2 hours. So, it’s obviously a bit of a grunt to get over the mountains!
I had better look for a map showing elevations to see just how challenging this might be......
