Fossombrone extends along the Metauro River at the point where the valley narrows, delimited by the slopes of the Cesana and the Colle dei Cappuccini hills. The city is characterized by the important summit of the Colle dell’Aldebrando, where you can see the ruins of the Malatesta-Montefeltro fortress. In the Middle Ages Fossombrone was first governed by the Malatesta of Pesaro, then passed under the control of the Duchy of Urbino, until its devolution to the Pontifical State in 1631 and so remaining until the unification of Italy in 1860. During the rule of Montefeltro and Della Rovere, the city was enriched with numerous noble buildings, including the Corte Alta, now home to the “A. Vernarecci” Civic Museum and the Art Gallery, and the Corte Bassa, the ancient residence of Cardinal Giuliano Della Rovere. Numerous other historic buildings overlook Corso Garibaldi, the main artery of the city: the Palazzo Comunale (the city hall), built in the 16th century, the Bishop's palace, dating back to the 15th century. and various religious buildings, including the Baroque Church of San Filippo and the Cathedral. At about 2 kilometers from Fossombrone, on a large river terrace on the left bank of the Metauro river, one can visit the Forum Sempronii, the original seat of the city, built in Roman times and today accessible within the archaeological park itself.

Vino e olio, eccellenze dell’agricoltura e della gastronomia marchigiana, sono da sempre al centro dell’economia e dell’identità culturale locale, come testimoniano i numerosi impianti per la produzione olearia e vinicola presenti sin dall’età picena nella regione. Il viaggio alla scoperta del territorio dedicato all’antica produzione dell’olio e del vino ci conduce lungo la Salaria Gallica, strada che collegava Fossombrone ad Ascoli Piceno passando per le principali colonie romane, immerse nelle verdi colline marchigiane.
