Pesaro is a town and comune in the Italian region of the Marche, capital of the Pesaro e Urbino province, on the Adriatic. According to the 2011 census, its population was 95,011, making it the second most populous city in the Marche, after Ancona. Pesaro is known as “City of Bicycle”, thanks to its big net of bicycle paths. The city received this award by Legambiente, the most important ecologist society in Italy, in 2015, because it is the city with the biggest bicycle use in Italy. It is also known as “City of Music” thanks to the bond with Gioacchino Rossini, the famous composer born in Pesaro. For this reason, in 2015, the Italian Government officially candidate Pesaro as “Creative City” in the group of World Heritage Sites of UNESCO.
The central seaside promenade is alongside Piazzale della Libertà, where benches and a little headland enable holiday makers to enjoy views over the water and along the coastline. There are sandy beaches in each direction, and another around the corner at Baia Flaminia, on the far side of the port. As normal in Italy, the beaches are packed with private beach concessions and rows of sun beds. By the hill at the southern end of town, the Colle Ardizio, there is some free beach (spiaggia libera) if you prefer a more basic beach experience.
