Duchies and nature cycling tour
Duchies and nature cycling Tour
Our experience begins from the Rocca Ubaldinesca, a Renaissance fortification of 1475, which dominates the Mercatale lake from the Sassocorvaro hill. In this fortress we find the Ark of Art, an important museum that protected numerous works of art during the last war. We will skirt the lake with its cycling routes and passing through Pieve di Cagna, we will arrive at the Duchy of Urbino with its imposing Renaissance architecture and birthplace of Raffaello Sanzio. Leaving the Renaissance and going back to the Roman era, in Fermignano, where the Carthaginian Asdrubale died against the Romans, we pass the Roman bridge observing the old medieval tower, in this hamlet where history and economy intertwine.
Continuing we arrive in front of a mighty boulder of chalk: Peglio, overlooking the tight mountain ranges of the Marche Apennines, home to a Lombard castle where we will visit two crypts.
We will taste a must from the Marches: the crescia sfogliata in various flavors with a glass of bianchello del Metauro, or a non-alcoholic Visciole wine.
Length: 45 km. Duration: 6 h. Difficulty: easy. Bike we recommend: E-trekking.
Quotation on request.
