The fort can be easily reached by going up Via Raphael away from Piazza Rebulica and Piazza Ducal. Up the hill. After exiting the gate, turn left. Continue along the wall and you will see signs for the fort. You have to climb the steps to reach the fort. Did not go in the fort itself as it was closed but the area has great views looking down on Urbino. Also nice shady benches to sit and rest. There is also a cafe.

Once built to protect it, the fortress still stands his above the city, offering a wonderful view from the gardens that surround it. In summer the place hosts country fairs and concerts. A pleasant stop when visiting Urbino. Sit on a bench or on the grass and admire the harmoniously clustered buildings below you, and the gentle hills surrounding the beautiful Renaissance city.

This is the place where students and family with kids (there is one of the few playgrounds in Urbino) go in Spring-Summer-Autumn to enjoy a wonderful view of Urbino and a place to relax, read and drink/eat small snacks. The view is worth the steep uphill walk even though the Fortezza itself is not particularly well maintained and access is rather limited (the fortress not the parc) you'll enjoy it a lot. If it's summer and you want a cooler place to be, go to the Monumento di Raffaello. Wind helps making the place cooler.

You can take in the surrounding valley almost at 360°, the little hamlets, the larger villages, the gently rolling hills in this amazing park scattered with modern sculptures and dominated by the medieval Albornoz stronghold.

My wife and I visited the fortress and learnt about its amazing history. The fortress is quite stunning and matches the amazing views across the Italian countryside. The fortress has also been well maintained over time to reflect how magnificent it truly is.
