"Urbino" Urbino by stefano99

Urbino Travel Guide: 55 reviews and 163 photos


The famous renaissance city of Urbino, the birthplace of Raphaello is well worth a visit.

The city is full of steep narrow streets leading to piazzas, few cars are allowed into the city, so it is a pleasant, healthy and interesting walk.

The Duke's palace is a large imposing building and the centre piece of the walled city. The palace contains two famous paintings by Piero della Francesca, 'The Ideal City' and 'Flagellation'.

    We so enjoyed the people watching here!! Still sorting out our pics from our 2003 visit to Marche area. Late as usual and afraid that some are going to be mixed up, will do our best :-) forgive us for any mistakes!
