Pesaro is an attractive seaside resort in Northern Marche; it has 7 km of wide sandy beach. It is an ideal holiday destination for families; for a more secluded beach with green hills as a backdrop, Baia Flaminia just to the north of the centre is the best. There are a lot of accommodation facilities: some of them are open all around the year. A wide cycling path running for about 12 km is fully available. The city has always been connected with the sea: the Museum Washington Patrignani documents the tradition and the history of Pesaro’s Maritime Culture.
Must see attractions in the historic centre are: the Palazzo Ducale ,the Cathedral, the Musei Civici , the Pinacoteca and the modest house where Italy's great opera composer Gioacchino Rossini was born in 1792; the annual Rossini Opera Festival in August has earned a world-wide reputation. On the sea front there’s the Villino Ruggeri, one of the finest examples of the 20th century Italian Liberty style. Pesaro is in the area of the regional park of Monte San Bartolo; you can’t miss touring Casteldimezzo, Fiorenzuola di Focara e Santa Marina Alta, lovely villages overlooking the Adriatic Sea.
