Cattolica is a pleasant town along the Romagna Riviera of the Adriatic Coast. A 130 km long beach of finest sand extending from the Po delta to the Apennin mountains that here almost meet the sea. The sand gently extends for almost 100 m flowing into a very tranquil sea: safe for all children bathing. Separators grant the quality of the clear and blue waters whilst the iodine air proofs to be very salutary.
Taking a holiday at Cattolica, you have the opportunity to visit Urbino, pearl of the Renaissance and home town of the painter Raffaello Sanzio. It was one of the most important capitals of the Italian Renaissance. Duke Federico da Montefeltro transformed it into the very political and cultural centre during many years. He gathered around him the best artists and architects such as Luciano Laurana and Francesco di Giorgio Martini. His Palazzo Ducale houses nowadays the Galleria Nazionale delle Marche, a remarkable collection of paintings and masterpieces of Piero della Francesca and Raffaello. You can also find The Ideal City, a painting that best represents the Renaissance.
In the neighbourhood you can visit the fortification of San Leo. Topped on a huge rock, where the Romans first built a fortress and in the Middle Ages Francesco di Giorgio Martino developed a complex system of fortifications for the defense of the Duke Federico. From the 17th century till 1906 the fortress became a prison of the Pope for Renaissance patriots and freethinkers. Among them there was also Giuseppe Balsamo, better known as Count of Cagliostro, an alchemist and healer, heretic and maybe charlatan, who died there in 1795.
Just a few km away from the Adriatic coast San Marino, also known as the oldest republic in the world, has an important collection of monuments and museums of artistical or touristic interest. The castles are perched along the cliff and the old town surrounded by a triple row of walls. Within the walls, the streets, squares, buildings and churches, all made of stone, maintain the austere and charming aspect of medieval architecture.
