The Montefeltro Duke jem


For tourists planning an in-depth cultural tour of Italy, Urbino is a must. Duke Federico da Montefeltro (1422-1482), military leader, ruler and humanist patron of the arts, built a palace and maintained a famed court here; one of the most important in Renaissance Italy. Urbino has UNESCO World Heritage status for representing "A pinnacle of Renaissance art and architecture, harmoniously adapted to its physical site and to its medieval precursor in an exceptional manner. . . ". Urbino is still proud of its cultured standing while being a university town.

Itinerary

Walking from Via Mazzini to Piazza della Repubblica, a crossroad in Urbino, we enter other roads sloping up to the town's various 'summits'. Taking Via Vittorio Veneto we reach the Ducal Palace where the best-preserved room of the palace is the Duke's private study, a small secret space within his apartment, which is beautifully panelled in inlaid wood. Via Raffaello leads us to the past Raphael's house and up to a great viewpoint of this enchanting city of art. Other sights of interest in Urbino include the Duomo, in a Neo-Classical style, and the Grotte underneath: surprisingly large chapels carved out of the rock.
