Urbino is a walled city located in north-central Italy, several hours drive east of Florence.

Its historic center is a UNESCO World Heritage Site known for its important legacy in the development of Renaissance culture, especially under the patronage of Federico da Montefeltro, duke of Urbino from 1444 to 1482.

The town, nestled on a high sloping hillside, retains much of its picturesque medieval appearance, including one of the largest palaces in Italy (Palazzo Ducale).

Urbino also hosts the University of Urbino, founded in 1506.
