Pesaro Things to Do

  • Casa natale di Gioachino Rossini

    Famous italian compositior Gioachino Rossini is one of Pesaro’s most famous children. His best known work is the opera “The Barbier of Sevilla” with Largo al factotum (Fiiiiiiigaro…) being the most famous aria. His birthhouse at the Via Rossini is now a museum (Casa Rossini). I did not visit the museum, so I can’t tell you much about that. The...

  • Cathedral Basilica

    This is the cathedral Basilica, built in the 5th centurry on the sites of a roman sacntuary. At least, I hope that it is the basilica as I can’t remember 100% for sure… The building is of romanic style, but the large entrance door and the small neighbouring arches are obviously gothic. This church is one of the largest in Pesaaro’s old town and...

  • Church of San Agostino

    This small church in the old town fascinates with its interesting combination of a pure gothic portal and a venetian-baroque façade. The church was built in 1453 and rebuilt several times. It’s one of only very few exmples coming into my mind, where rebuilding did cause a change but not a heavy aesthetical damage.

  • Piazza del Popolo

    Piazza del Popolo is the central square of the town and a typical italian old town square with all its palaces around it. In the center, you will find a beautiful fountain. Finished in 1593, it was destroyed in WWII. After that, the fountain was rebuilt to get back its original appearance.

  • Palazzo Ducale

    Close to the Post office palace, you will find another 15th century Sforza family palace. The Palazzo Ducale was always a center of power within the region and is now home to the local authorities. Today, it is one of the largest and most impressive buildings at Piazza del Popolo. This palace is a good example for the transition from gothic...

  • Palazzo Postale

    This 15th century renaissance palace was built by the Sforza family which ruled the land for a longer period. For centuries, it was home of the main post office. Now it is used as a conference center.

  • Piazzale della Libertá

    This square is located between the seashore and the old town, making it a popular place for people to meet and chill out. Nearby cafés and ice cream parlours will provide you with food and drinks, if necessary. The square is dominated by Arnaldo Pomodoro’s sculpture “sfeare grande”, which is the landmark of Pesaro. The artist’s family name gave the...

  • La palla del pomodoro

    La palla del pomodoro means the ball of the tomato! i really have no idea why it was called like this but this is like the most beautiful area in pesaro, you can sit on the benches that over look the sea, and you can buy yourself an icecream from the gelaterie nearby

  • Lesena of S. Agostino's Church

    This is another particular of the Facade. I found it very interesting. This is an example of a gothic-venetian decoration.

  • Particolar of the Church

    This picture shows a particular of the facade of S. Agostino Church. I think it represents S. Agostino but there are two statues very similar so I'm not sure!!

    Piazza Toschi Mosca and its Palace Toschi Mosca hosts the Civic Museums of Pesaro. In the Civic Museums you can browse through one of Italy's finest collections of Renaissance and Baroque pottery, much of it striking for its spontaneous, almost modern, use of colour and design.

This vast work of art belongs to the same period as the magnificent Byzantine mosaics at...

Pesaro Transportation

  • Bus between Pesaro and Urbania

    by Patty44297 Written Jun 2, 2008

    Hi Corra,
    Grazie! That should get me to Urbania. What about when we leave to go to Roma on a Sunday? Is there bus service on Sunday from Urbania to Pesaro? Would we go from Urbania to Urbino to Pesaro? If yes, what time should we plan to leave Urbania by bus to make the train at 13:16?
    I really appreciate your help because I haven't got a clue as to what to do!
