When you visit the Urbino old town, it may seem like a travel back in time. If you look on the buildings and ignore modern outfits of people passing by, the posters, café umbrellas, you can feel like a time traveller visiting on a summer’s day, that is 500 years ago. This is the impression one could have, especially when you visit the square in front of the Urbino Cathedral.
Urbino in Marche region in Italy, is one of the hidden gems for history lovers. The city is a UNESCO World Heritage site and now belongs to one of my favourite Italian towns. The old town is known for many medieval ensembles and occupying the remains of the independent Renaissance culture. Today it is recognized as a student town.
Ferrara was one of the first cities in Italy that was built using specific architectural plans, intent for use to make fully functional and visually appealing. Ferrara, together with the Po Delta River belongs to the UNESCO WORLD HERITAGE. I just had to see the real “modern” renaissance city that became a UNESCO sight!
