13 years of inward bound
Jan 2020 • Solo
I lived in Urbania for nearly 13 years before moving to the suburbs of Milan. The first 9 years the bells in the central clock tower chimed every 15 minutes. That means day AND night. Don't know how the locals ever got used to it, but for me having grown up in the suburbs of Maryland and a light sleeper it was at times difficult to find rest.
The 10th year of my stay, during a period in which over 10 feet of snow fell in a period of two weeks, the tower bells seemed to be thrown out of wack and, after military sized vehicles were brought in to dig us out, were subsequently dismantled a repaired or so I was led to believe....the result was that their frequency was interrupted during the night hours, giving me a much needed respite from their sonorous clanging and, for the first time in years, my first night of uninterupted slumber. I could write a book about my experience in this berg which might include the night I saw a bank heist from the safety of my 4th story window. And to think, if those darn bells hadn't kept me awake I would have missed the whole thing! 😉

Great base to explote

Pleasant town with range of restaurants. Interesting and felt safe throughout our stay. Urbiano is not a tourist destination per we, but from our base in the excellent Parco we visited Urbino and the wonderful Gubbio is not far away.

A charming town
Jul 2019 • Couples
Not a major tourist destination but a lovely place to pass a few hours or act as a base. Several good places to eat and can recommend Parco Ducale as a place to stay. We didn't visit thd main attractions but enjoyed eating out (see other reviews) walking through the narrow streets. At night there is a nice atmosphere as everyone emerges from the heat of summer. Take time to walk down the side streets.

Worth the drive
Oct 2018 • Couples
A great place to visit with lots to see but no crowds. The Palazzo Ducale was free and open, although the museum was closed.
Plenty of bars and the most delicious gelati.

Well worth a visit
Aug 2018
An amazing medieval small town - with so much to see! Good family run restaurants, and the most incredible attitude to visitors, who are not treated as tourists, but genuinely made welcome. A lovely market on Thursdays, with a marvellous fish stall, (try the fried mixed seafood) and cheese stall - different ages of parmesan, the delicious local casciotta. There is also a good wine bar - the Vino Enotecca, which has great wine and truffle tastings, as well as being a good place to sit and enjoy the company and the wine. The Ducal Palace, the arcaded streets, bridges over the river which is a long way below, and, in spite of Europe's long hot summer, Urbania was incredibly verdant - and somewhere I would love to go back to.

Two weeks in Urbania
Jun 2018 • Friends
I was in Urbania for two weeks with Centro Studi Italiani culinary and cultural experience. We stayed in an apartment and ate at quite a few of the restaurants. The townspeople were very friendly. They didn’t speak English so practice up on your Italian! It was a great experience.

Small Medieval town in Le Marche
Jul 2017
This is my second visit to Urbania, a small but historic town in Le Marche. Here to learn the language but there is considerable history in line with Urbino. Lovely surrounds with great photo opportunities. Worth a look if in the area.

Lovely quiet town

Urbania does not attract a great number of foreign tourists. Surprisingly there are quite a number of eating places all busy with locals. Most are very good. The town has a very friendly feel and relaxed atmosphere and it is a great base to explore the area.

Been here twice, for a combined 5 days. Love the town, its quaintness, proximity to Urbino, and the restaurants and the gelato. All wonderful. I added pictures, take a look -- VISIT if you can.

Small town close to Urbino
May 2014 • Couples
Not a very big place, but a pleasant 1-2 hour visit. Easy to walk and very pretty landscape. Some of the attractions were closed, but there was enough to get an appreciation of the town.
