  • Cattolica, Castello di Gradara

There is a familiar and absolutely recognizable silhouette that whizzes joyfully in the Streets of the City of Cattolica throughout the summer: it is the charming nody train of Cattolica.

Take a ride to wander around the City or to reach Gradara, a lovely little Village in
the Marche Region, listed among the most beautiful Villages in Italy. Gradara is perched on a Hill with a dazzling Medieval Castle on top and its imposing set of Walls.

Going up towards the Fortress you can clearly embrace the atmosphere of a smallMedieval Village, where the time has stopped and you almost kind expect to see people in Medieval costumes, outfits maybe a knight on horseback, or to hear the
music of a lute.

The Castle of Gradara is one of the most beautiful and famous ones in Italy. It is strategically located at the highest point of the Village and develops from the main tower, the Mastio, 30 meters high. A Legend tells that the Castle was the Scene of the famous and tragic love story of Paolo and Francesca, caught in each other’s arms and killed by Gianciotto, Francesca’s Husband. A love Story that was immortalized by Dante in his Divine Comedy.

There are also many Events to experience with Children as well, from the turbulent
and spectacular “Assault to the Castle”, to the enchantment of the Magic Castle, when fairies and strange creatures from distant Worlds come to visit us.

Don’t worry the Gradara Express Train will bring you back to Cattolica!
