Overlooking the sea and crossed by the river Foglia, Pesaro is a seaside town laying between two hills: San Bartolo and Colle Ardizio; its historic downtown is rich in monuments, especially from the Renaissance period.
Pesaro is the second largest city by population in the region of Marche, after its capital, Ancona. The city has an urban area that extends beyond the municipal boundaries and incorporates several other municipalities such as Sant’Angelo in Lizzola, Montelabbate, and Colbordolo, but overall the functional region of Pesaro includes 273,735 inhabitants.
Pesaro is on the Adriatic Sea and has a sandy beach. The town is between two hills, Monte Ardizio east-south-east, and the Colle San Bartolo west-northwest, which gives its name to the Regional Natural Park of Monte San Bartolo. Since 2005, the city was awarded with the Blue Flag given by the FEE (Foundation for Environmental Education) to the coastal resorts that meet European quality criteria related to parameters of bathing water and the services offered, considering, inter alia, cleanness of beaches and marinas. Inland, along the River Foglia, the town expands into a modest flatland, narrowing near the Apennines forming the valley of the Foglia.
Villa Moni is just 8 km away from Pesaro, reachable by car in just 15 minutes. The proximity to the city center and the beaches makes of it a pleasant location also from the logistical point of view, while remaining immersed in the relaxing and quiet countryside.
