There are also numerous museums and priceless architectural monuments to see, while the assorted crafts and souvenirs provide a vast, pleasant shopping experience. The vineyards in the fertile soils of the Emilia Romagna area the soft rolling hills of the Marche and Montefeltro and on to the placid Adriatic Sea all visible from the mountain peaks offer unique, dazzling panoramas.
