Conca valley

The itinerary, which includes castles and villages, winds its way through hills and mountains, where each town or village has its own particular reason for being of interest to tourists.
From the well-known seaside resort of Gabicce Mare, the itinerary passes through Gradara before entering the Conca valley. This rather delightful town it’s famous for its castle where Dante in his Divine Comedy, immortalised the tragic love affair  between Paolo and Francesca. Once back on provincial road 39 going towards Tavullia, the itinerary passes through Sassocorvaro (see previous itinerary) and continues on to Macerata Feltria, overlooked by its ancient Romanesque tower and rich in ancient churches.The town also has a modern spa resort. The road now goes up and over monte Faggiola with, on the way down, a breathtaking view of Montecerignone, perched high on a ridge. A few kilometres further away lies Montegrimano Terme with its spa resort. The itinerary however, moves on to Carpegna, to the “Palazzo dei Principi”(the Princes Palace) and the parish church of San Giovanni. The hamlet is well-known for its monte Carpegna, an exceptional natural setting with the largest Adriatic oak woods in the province. A good place to stop is at the “Cantoniera”, an ideal spot for an overnight stay, and picnic based on the famous Carpegna ham, an exceptional products that have also found fame throughout the country, accompanied by prestigious wines from the hills of Pesaro, one of the most well-known being Sangiovese.
