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...more
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...more
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.more
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.more
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...more
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...more
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.more
Further down Via Rossini stands the town's Cathedral; step inside to see the remarkable mosaic floor uncovered in 2000.

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!
The ceramics workshops and the brightly painted earthenware known as majolica are everywhere in Pesaro. In the Musei Civici (Civic Museums) in Piazza Toschi Mosca (just off Via Rossini) you can browse through one of Italy's finest collections of Renaissance and Baroque pottery.more

This is the facade of the Sinagogue of Pesaro. It seems to be a normal house but inside you can find everything you need about the religion creed.The Spanish Sinagogue was built around the 17th centuries in the heart of the ancient Pesaro. From the city centre it takes only 10 minutes to find it, follow the guide!
