"Charming Cagli" Cagli by deecat

Set against some of the highest peaks in the northern Marches, Cagli is a small town that is over 2,000 years old!
In the days of ancient Rome, it was an important staging post on the Via Flaminia (one of the oldest Roman roads in Europe). Like other towns with Roman origins, it is laid out in a Roman grid plan: Central square, town hall, and a fountain, and, of course, all the roads leave or lead from that point.
This is, indeed, a medieval town with its medieval streets, aristocratic palazzi, and gigantic fortress.
We drove the modern superstrada and dual-carriageway that follows the Via Flaminia until we reached the CAGLI exit. This courtly town is near such Le Marche towns as Fabriano, Fossombrone, and not too far from Urbino.
It's a delightful little town for shopping, and lots of renovation seems to be happening here.
