Throughout the winter, Fano and its surroundings are a constellation of unmissable appointments among cultural and non-cultural events. It will be a triumph of scents, colors and flavors, washed down with Verdicchio, typical of these areas and the most awarded white wine of Italy in 2018, and with the “novello” characteristic of the autumn season.

The rich entertainment program features the city of Fano, Urbino, Fermignano, Acqualagna and other places easily accessible by public transport or with a car hired through Marina dei Cesari. The tour operator Tuquitour, partner of Marina dei Cesari, will be on hand to organize your flight, your stay and your excursions to let you experience a real taste of Italy through the most important local events.
