Nature
“Coined as the centre of the Earth, these caves are some of the the largest and most famous underground caverns in Italy. It may be cold but this crystalline wonderland is completely worth it. The factions from the theatrical lighting light up the beams and walkways which lead to displays showcasing the most extravagant stalagmites and stalactites.”

“Patrimonio dell'umanità UNESCO uno dei centri più importanti del Rinascimento italiano. Urbino is situated between the valleys of Metauro and Foglia rivers. Its historic centre now boasts the honour of being included in the UNESCO list of World Heritage Sites. It is birthplace of two great artists, Bramante and Raphael. In the second half of the 15th century its windy hill was the setting for one of the most illustrious courts in Europe.

Restaurant
“This is the best place if you want to experience your dining with an element of mystery. The menu is revised daily and from season to season, meaning no two visits are the same! Reasonably priced, the set menus consist of antipasti, a first, a second and contorno, meaning you leave feeling extremely satisfied! Not only this, but a cheeky digestive is provided for afters too. If you are travelling with a group of friends, it is the ideal place to share dishes and try new things together. It is not so adaptable for people with allergies, so this is worth bearing in mind where relevant. Lunch starts from 13:00 to 14:30 and dinner is 20:30 to 22:00.”
