Another fantastic day trip from our Agriturismo Ca'Camone in northern Le Marche is Mondavio.  Take the Via Flaminia to Mondavio - you will pass through delightful rolling hills & medieval towns like Fossombrone!

The striking fortifications (above) stand out from miles away.  You will start to recognize this architecture in northern Le Marche (Cagli, Mondavio, Sassocavaro, etc.) all built by Francesco di Giorgio Martini, one of Italy's most celebrated Renaissance military architects. 
 The fortress now houses a slightly creppy/funny "living museum" with wax dummies portraying life when the Rocca was built at the close of the 15th century for the family of Duke Federico da Montefeltro.

Check out the super cool trebuchets or catapults - you can even move them & climb into the buckets!
It won't take long to stroll around the town, enjoy a drink, gaze out at the view & wander to the shaded park near the square, it feels like its straight out of a movie!
And return back to Ca'Camone just in time for dinner!
