Visit the medieval village, the castle and relive the story of Paolo and Francesca made immortal by Dante Alighieri
Bonelli Bus will take you to the wonderful medieval village of Gradara, in the countryside in the Marche and Romagna area, just 3 km from the sea, where the imposing Malatesta Fortress stands. Its history is linked to the legendary love story between Paolo and Francesca, who were killed out of jealousy by Paolo’s brother, Gianciotto Malatesta.
The castle is an imposing architectural masterpiece, and the history of the town has a troubled past. Built as a military fortress on a borderland, over time it was turned into a majestic aristocratic residence by the powerful families that dominated this land.
A visit to Gradara with family or friends is a valuable cultural tour and an opportunity to enjoy yourself in natural surroundings and history.
