Senigallia and its hinterland

Sometimes you don’t have to go far to discover the beauties of Italy

Seaside town

Seaside town The seaside town of Senigallia is one of the most attractive and friendly on the Adriatic Riviera, also known as the Velvet Beach for its soft, golden, ultra-fine sand, its thirteen kilometres of coast and the quality of its clean, shallow sea. Senigallia has now held European “Blue Flag” status for 18 years.
The symbol of Senigallia is the Rotonda a Mare, opened on 18 July 1933, which soon because a famous musical event and entertainment venue. The ‘50s and ‘60s were the golden years of Senigallia’s Rotonda a Mare, as it hosted the most famous Italian pop music stars; their greatest successes are brought back to life today by the Summer Jamboree and the Caterraduno.

A historic town of great cultural interest

A historic town of great cultural interest The very well preserved historic centre contains the Piazza del Duca with the Rocca Roveresca Castle, a reminder of the age when the town was part of the Urbino Dukedom. It is also the place where Cesare Borgia, the “Valentino”, carried out the famous massacre of his enemies described by Niccolò Machiavelli in “The Prince”. Also on the square are the Palazzetto Baviera and the Ducal Palace. By the River Misa which flows through the city is the unusual Foro Annonario, still home to the fish and vegetable market, which also hosts the shows of Senigallia’s two biggest events, the August Summer Jamboree and the June Caterraduno, which attract thousands of visitors and fans from all over the world every year.
Walking onwards, the visitor can stroll under the Portici Ercolani, the arcades that once sheltered the ancient “fiera franca” or free fair, also known as the Fiera della Maddalena or "Fiera di Senigallia", at its height between the mid 17th and late 18th Centuries, when it was one of Europe's most important fairs; in 1760 Carlo Goldoni actually entitled one of his comic operas "La fiera di Senigallia".
In Senigallia, history and culture centre around the birthplace and family home of Pope Pio IX, the small but very beautiful Baroque Chiesa della Croce (Church of the Cross), with its altar painting of the Deposition of Christ by Federico Barocci, the Chiesa di San Martino (Church of St Martin) with the lovely Visit to Saint Anna by Guercino, the Convento delle Grazie (Convent of Graces) which contains a Madonna and Saints by Perugino in its church, the Museo di Storia della Mezzadria (Sharecropping Museum) and the Museo di Arte moderna e dell'Informazione (Museum of Modern Art and Communications) with a major collection of photographs by Mario Giacomelli.

A family-run 3 * hotel that dedicates a lot of attention to its guests; newly renovated rooms with comfortable and modern beds, a well-kept buffet that is constantly manned by the staff. Beautiful sandy beach a few meters away. We also appreciated and took advantage of the season ticket for the bus that takes you to the center. We will be back!

We had a pleasant stay in this hotel. Courtesy of the staff, comfortable and recently renovated rooms, a beautiful outdoor pergola to relax with a sea view, very good and abundant food with a varied buffet of first and second appetizers. Very convenient location facing the sea. Quiet area and high quality fixtures with remarkable sound insulation. A beautiful experience

After last year's stop due to pandemic problems, this year we are finally back at the Tritone. This is now my third review so I omit to describe the "usual" quality consolidated over the years and absolutely not scratched by the last disastrous period. Instead, I focus on the news: the new air-conditioned pergola that allows you to enjoy the sea view in complete relaxation on comfortable sofas, the menu managed grandly by the cheff that presents many fish dishes (after all, the sea is one meter away). In short, a pleasant return to the family, yes because Teresa is Silvia I am always there S to welcome you and to make you really feel at home. Try it and say that I will send you

We have been staying 1 week in this hotel for years. Super welcome and kindness of Maria Teresa and Siliva! The hotel is spotless, directly on the sea. Friendly staff and a truly excellent quality of food: spatial büffet. We will be back again this year!

Taking advantage of the first bridge in June we decided to stay in this hotel attracted by the fact that it was under renovation. I also chose it because it was a little "further away" from the center, in a very quiet and relaxing area and above all because I wanted it to be facing the sea. Well the reality has far exceeded expectations: unsurpassed hospitality of Ms Silvia and her stainless mother, excellent food, comfortable beds, modern and very clean rooms. The beautiful climatic pergola is also very welcoming. Excellent service, shaded indoor parking. You can't ask for more !!! We will definitely be back. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED !!!

Recently renovated, comfortable hotel. Friendly staff and in case of problems ready to solve them immediately. The owners make you feel at home and very helpful. Very clean. We have chosen the all-inclusive formula at a great price. Parking is included and is adjacent to the hotel, which is great if you want to take the car back and find where to park the car. As for eating, if what you eat you also eat the owner is a good business card. The beach is located in front of the hotel and is included in the price. Highly recommended hotel.
