Friendly faces, nice clean rooms and proximity to the beach are what make this accommodation perfect for low-key beach holidays in the Marche, you can even hop on a train and visit Ancona if the mood takes you. 2 Steps 2 the Beach! Many come to Italy?s eastern coast to back in the hot sun and bathe in the cool Adriatic waters but what makes Senigallia so popular is its Spiaggia di Velluto or Velvet Beach, described in this way due to the unbelievably soft sand. If this is why you are here yet you are traveling on a budget, then this reasonably-priced Beachfront Senigallia hotel should do the trick! Save on your accommodation but be on top of it all at Universal. The hotel has its own private beach where you can tan for hours undisturbed if only by the sounds of the waves. You?ll find changing rooms for your convenience, as well as beach volley, bowls, table tennis and a kid?s playground. See the Sights! As tempting as it may be to lounge on the soft sands of the Spiaggia di Velluto for the whole holiday, Senigallia has plenty of other things to do and see as well. The town centre is only 5 minutes walk from the hotel where you?ll find a whole bunch of cute shops, cafés and restaurants to peruse as well as the town hall (Palazzo Comunale) ? admired by many. You can also see the Rocca Roveresca di Mondavio which is a very well-preserved 15th Century castle, the Senigallia Duomo (cathedral), the church of Santa Maria delle Grazie, and the Foro Annonario where markets, concerts and the like are held. You can also take a stroll down the banks of the Misa River or down the famous round promenade that characterizes the town - Rotonda a Mare. Cyclists Welcome!
