Field Trips

If, in addition to the sea, sun, good food and fun you want something more, our inland is the ideal place where to go for a relaxing trip out of town.

Just a few kilometers away from the hotel, you can reach the impressive SALUDECIO and its nineteenth century style festival, or immerse yourself in the medieval atmosphere of SAN LEO, or the historic re-enactments of MONDAINO and the Palio del Daino.
In SANTARCANGELO you can visit the tuff quarries hidden beneath the city, used by Christians to avoid persecution and now used as wine cellars.

You will dive into the romantic atmosphere of the fascinating CASTLE of GRADARA, background of the sad romantic story of Paolo and Francesca; within its majestic rooms not be missed are the Torture chamber and the walkways on the fortress' battlements from where you will be able to enjoy the stunning view of most of the hinterland.

MONTEFIORE was an important strategic city for the powerful Malatesta family, and still today it maintains important evidence of its prestigious past while the Sanctuary Cella di Bonora is famous for the beautiful portrait of Our Lady with Child, subject of great devotion by the faithful.
