Pesaro, the only Adriatic town where the sun sets on the sea

I’ve been living in Pesaro for (almost) all my life and I’ve just come to know that my home town seems to be the only town of the Adriatic sea where the sun rises and sets on the sea.

How is that possible? Haven’t we all learned that the sun rises in the east, and sets in the west? Well, I have enjoyed more than a red sun sinking into the sea in Pesaro; yet it never occurred to me that this natural phenomenon apparentely defies all laws of cardinal directions!

ROSA VENTIWell. I got some information and it turned out that in the Summertime the sun in Pesaro sets on the sea because in the Summer the sun sets at North-West.

The pictures I am sharing with you today – believe it or not – have not been altered in any way. I just took them a couple of days ago in the supermarket’s parking place in Pesaro. No sunset on the sea. Just one of those blissful moments in life when an ordinary activity (going to the supermarket) turns into magic.

That’s Italy,  and that’s Pesaro. And that’s life – always ready to take us aback 😉


  1. I too am convinced that Pesaro is a fantastic place. I have visited no less than five times, staying at the Des Baines Hotel each time. Great old world charm! The reason for the visits was primarily for the wood-working machinery industry – where I purchased several machines for my employer. It was convenient that I could visit in the summer, fall, and winter. Enjoyed all the seasons, the great foods, and the beaches.!

    • Ciao Paul! Thank you for stopping by and for sharing your experience in Pesaro with us! I was in Berlin so this is why I did not answer you right away, sorry! Where are your from? I’m glad to hear that your visits in Pesaro for working reasons were pleasant in (almost) all seasons… Now you need to come back in Spring 😉 That’s the time when apricot, peach and cherry trees bloom 🙂 Have a nice day!
