Gradara Wheelchair Accessible Tours Marche Excursions
Gradara wheelchair accessible tours, is a characteristic village of the Marche famous for its strong medieval aspect and for its superb Castle that dominates the town.
You notice the magnificent Gradara even before arriving, when you see the beauty of a spectacular Castle from the highway.
You arrive and after a few steps in the town you find yourself catapulted into an atmosphere of other times, dominated by a surreal quiet.
Perched on the top of a hill, the historic village of Gradara is surrounded by two ancient city walls and has preserved its medieval atmosphere intact with small streets, shops and taverns.
Walking through the alleys is pleasant and evocative.
But the real attraction is the Castle around which the whole history of Gradara and the families who ruled here takes place.
The Malatesta, Sforza and Della Rovere.
Thanks to the maintenance of its urban structure and the various renovations it has undergone, Gradara is today one of the most beautiful and intact examples of the historic center of the medieval era.
Much of its notoriety is due to the magnificent, valuable structure and mighty Rocca of the Malatesta, one of the most intact and significant fortifications in Italy.
When you enter you feel as if you are in an embrace equal to that of the walls that gives you security.
Love is already in the air, it may be because the days are so dear to lovers but in the Borgo the feeling reigns beyond any obstacle and limitation, as if to revive the passion of Paolo and Francesca ( Dante Alighieri, the Divine Commedy ).
Not least is the mighty walls with attached towers that surround the entire town of Gradara, giving it an enchanting medieval appearance.
The walls are marked by fourteen towers and a fortified door in which the coats of arms of the Sforza, Della Rovere and Farnese are visible.

At the top of the main street you can see the Malatesta Fortress.
The road is all uphill, take your time because it is very steep, but thanks to the many shops and taverns the ascent will be “sweeter”!

The local kitchens offer delicious recipes that use local products accompanied by excellent wines from the Marche.
The dishes, based on genuine meat and vegetables, are washed down with Sangiovese wine but also with high quality extra virgin olive oil.
Typical dish of Gradara are the Tagliolini with the Bomb, a traditional peasant dish whose curious name derives from the method of preparation.
The ingredients are “poor” and the procedure is also quick and easy.
