The municipality of Mondolfo has joined the European Walled Towns.
Mondolfo is listed as one of Italy's prettiest towns. The compact center still retains its walls and Old World charm, capped by a castle. Its streets are lined with brick and pastel buildings, and there are panoramas of the surrounding hills and the sea from the ramparts of town.
Downhill at the coast is the beach town of Marotta, which is part of Mondolfo's administrative domain. The resort has wide sandy beaches that spread out for miles, offering shallow swimming that is perfect for families, with lines of shops and restaurants to serve sun-seekers. Games, entertainment, concerts, and events are offered throughout the summer months.
