I LOVE PU (rubrica di ‘tourist news’): What do you think of when I say ‘Italy’ ? (Part 2)


23 marzo 2016

Villa Guerrini 2PESARO – You are certainly aware that in Italy we have a huge problem when it comes to the ability of attracting tourists to our Bel Paese (actually, more than one, right?).

Maybe the biggest problem is our ineptitude in promoting our beautiful country abroad. Of course, anybody knows about Rome, Venice, Florence but Italy is a land of uninterrupted beauty and there is much more to Italy than the (needless to say) wonderful towns mentioned above.

IMG_2611Perhaps not all tourists feel like spending their holidays in cities. Maybe you love the beach, the countryside, or maybe you feel like having a cooking class or a wine tasting experience which does not take place necessarily in the (needless to say) wonderful Tuscany. Maybe because you have already been there. Maybe because you don’t feel like ending up in a ‘tourist’ class but you feel like experiencing the ‘real’ Italy. Just as an Italian does.

Well, if you ever decide to come and experience the ‘real’ Italy, you know I’m here to help 😉

IMG_2615Anyway, today I’m presenting you a privately owned villa in Pesaro (Villa Guerrini) which I visisted last Sunday on FAI Spring Days.

From a mere artistic/historic point of view, it cannot be compared with other ancient villas in town (or just outside the town of Pesaro) as Villa Caprile,Villa Imperiale or Villa Miralfiore. However, the garden hosts an old ‘limonaia’ (a lemon-tree greenhouse) and I could not but pay a visit to it given the name of my blog 😉

IMG_2597Villa Guerrini (located in Pesaro, in the Marche region) was built in 1787 in neoclassical style as a holiday resort by the noble abbot Vincenzo Giordani. In 1893 the villa was bought by the Guerrini family who still own it today.

It is a little ‘jewel’ and looks so Italian to me. Here I am presenting something which I feel is very Italian, but this time I’m not asking you ‘What do you think of when I say Italy’ but ‘What would you like to do/see while in Italy that you have not done before?’ or, if you have never visisted Italy before: ‘What would you like to see and/or experience while in Italy?’

Your answers are important to me for many reasons: from simple curiosity to working reasons…  Besides, you could give me new ideas for my future blog posts!

“I love PU” is a section written entirely in English and dedicated to foreign tourists, where you will find short report on appointments, events, history, people, culture, sport and curiosity of our beautiful territory: the province of Pesaro and Urbino.

Questa è una sezione interamente scritta in inglese e dedicata ai turisti stranieri dove, all’interno, troverete delle “pillole” informative su appuntamenti, eventi, storia, personaggi, cultura, sport e curiosità del nostro splendido territorio: la provincia di Pesaro e Urbino.

Alcuni degli articoli che troverete saranno a cura della blogger pesarese Simona Ortolani che, da quattro anni, cura un blog di promozione territoriale in inglese con l’intento di far conoscere la provincia di Pesaro e Urbino attraverso gli occhi di un’italiana doc e le sue esperienzie di vita ‘quotidiana’.
