An alogastronomic lunch is a must, but let these tips help shape the rest of a fantastic day in Apecchio:

Go by car: The bus system between Urbino and Apecchio is unreliable and confusing, so rent a car. Can’t drive a stick? The folks at the local beer association can arrange shuttles for travelers and are very willing to help you plan your day.
