Seaside Pesaro, Italian Capital of Culture 2024

From uncrowded beaches to artistic treasures, Pesaro has something for everyone.

Each year Italy makes the difficult choice of deeming one of its vibrant cities as the country’s “Capital of Culture,” providing the chosen city a unique opportunity to showcase its original appeal during the course of one year. The picturesque city on the Adriatic coast, Pesaro, with its long sandy beaches and wealth of cultural heritage, has been selected for 2024.

Bordering on the Adriatic Sea, Pesaro is ideal for beach lovers who appreciate beautiful scenery. With its seven kilometres of vast sandy beaches surrounded by the San Bartolo Park and the headlands overlooking the sea, Pesaro also boasts a port that connects the city the other side of the Adriatic by ferry.

In addition to its seaside appeal, Pesaro is a historical centre and as the birthplace of opera composer Gioachino Rossini, the city has been recognised as a UNESCO Creative City of Music. Visitors interested in art and history can soak up the atmosphere and discover the city’s numerous palaces, museums, churches, and fortresses, as well as its ancient and modern libraries by strolling through Pesaro’s elegant streets. The hundreds of exhibitions and events that will be taking place during the summer and throughout the city’s year as Italian capital of culture offer another way to explore Pesaro’s rich cultural offering.
