Introducing holidays to Pesaro
Live the Italian dream with a holiday to the beautiful seaside resort of Pesaro, nestled on the Adriatic coast beside Tuscany, in the spectacular Marche region. While not as famous as its Tuscan neighbour, both regions are home to stunning scenery. Pesaro boasts long sandy beaches, ancient landmarks, a historic old town and a pretty marina - all surrounded by gentle rolling countryside. Pesaro has a relaxed and upmarket feel, and is popular with well-to-do Italian families looking to escape the cities during the hot summer months. Expect luxury hotels, grand palazzos and villas and a thriving pavement café scene. Mostly, life in Pesaro revolves around the beach, with lines of well-organised sun loungers, fun water sports to enjoy, and calm waters perfect for swimming. If you fancy soaking up some city atmosphere, Bologna and Florence make fantastic day trip destinations. Slightly closer is the port city of Ancona, the capital of Marche, with its charming blend of beach life and culture.
Life’s a beach
Pesaro is home to a trio of stunning beaches. The main beach runs along the town’s promenade, alongside Piazzale della Libertà, and has a long 3km stretch of white sands with plenty of umbrellas and sun loungers for hire. The promenade is lined with seafront cafes, shops and bars and has breathtaking views out across the water and of the surrounding coastline. As in most Italian seaside resorts, many stretches of the beach are designated private beaches attached to a hotel but available to visit as a guest. At the southern end of the beach, you’ll find a free beach (spiaggia libera) if you prefer a back-to-basics beach experience. Head in either direction along the coast from Pesaro’s central beach and you’ll come across another lovely sandy stretch to enjoy. To the north is Baia Flaminia, a quieter and more secluded beach backed by green hills and sheltered from the sea breezes. To the south, towards the town of Fano, there are quieter beaches without umbrellas or deck chairs.
Aside from its gorgeous beaches, Pesaro has a lot of Italian charm to discover.
The historic Old Town is just crying out to be explored. Head to the Piazza del Popolo, at the heart of the city, where you’ll find a beautiful fountain at its centre and a square lined by lively cafes and bars. It’s the perfect place to relax with a drink and soak up the atmosphere. The 15th-century Ducal Palace is a large building which dominates the Piazza del Popolo and is an impressive landmark. Pesaro’s cathedral, or St Terence Basilica, is one of the most important historical buildings in the town. It has a newly discovered mosaic floor, which can be viewed from a specially designed modern glass floor suspended above the original.
Pesaro is home to some interesting museums, from the fun Museo Benelli, devoted to the sport of cycling, to the Musei Civici, which houses some stunning Bellini artworks.
