Urbino

Urbino is a walled city that is recognised a World Heritage Site. The city has a remarkable historical legacy of independent Renaissance culture, especially under the patronage of Federico da Montefeltro, who was duke of Urbino in the 15th Century. The town, nestled on a high sloping hillside, retains much of its picturesque medieval aspect. It hosts the University of Urbino, founded in 1506, and its best-known architectural piece is the Palazzo Ducale, rebuilt by Luciano Laurana. It houses the Galleria Nazionale delle Marche, one of the most important collections of Renaissance paintings in the world. Other interesting buildings include Palazzo Albani, Palazzo Odasi, Palazzo Passionei and the Albornoz Fortress. Churches to see include the Duomo (which houses the famous Last Supper by Federico Barocci), San Giovanni Battista, Sant'Agostino, San Francesco and the Oratory of San Giuseppe. Urbino is also home to the Orto Botanico "Pierina Scaramella" botanical garden.
