Le Marche - Urbino, Gradara, Urbania - need some advice

Jump to last reply

I will be spending about 3-4 days based in Urbino in July (near the end of a five week trip - and just prior to the three nights in Urbino we will have stayed two nights in San Marino). It looks like both Gradara and Urbania are places we'd want to visit but I'm finding almost no information about them. Not even mentioned in most of the ten or so Italy guidebooks I have. I've found a little with google searches but was hoping someone here had been to the area and could answer a few questions.

1) They both look fabulous so how come they aren't in the guidebooks?

2) They are in opposite directions from Urbino but does it make sense to use one of the two full days to visit both of them? That would leave another full day for Urbino. Plus since we are coming from San Marino which is only a couple of hours, and when we leave we have a whole day to get to Rome, we would have parts of those days as well.

3) Any other places in the general vicinity that we should also include - we mostly just like to stroll around, take photos, soak up the ambiance.

4) Any drives in the area that are particularly scenic?

Thanks
