Fano Tourism

The province of Pesaro and Urbino is an interesting one to visit. Urbino is one of the gems of the Marche.

The nice thing about Fano is that while it is indeed a beach resort, there is more than enough to keep you busy if lying around all day on the beach doesn't strike your fancy.. The Arch of Augustus was the main gate to town, built by Emperor Augustus on the settlement that had grown up around the temple of Fanum Fortunae. Two thirds of the Augustan walls are still standing.

Go beneath the Church and Monastery of St. Augustine to see more ancient history. Then visit the Civic Museum, which houses the archaeological finds from Fano and the surrounding area. The museum is housed in the Palazzo Malatestiano.

The Fascists destroyed the Nuti Bastion (named after the architect) to create a monumental entrance to Fano, and now the area is a public garden.

The Civic Art Gallery is found in the northeast wing of the Malatesta Palace. It houses works from the 14th to 20th centuries.

Festival Dates

Fano dei Cesari, Fano of the Ceasars, is held in July. Fano Jazz by the Sea is also held at the end of July. There's a big carnevale in early spring. See Fanoeventi for more (In Italian)
