Frantoio Bigucci is located in the rich and fertile countryside of Romagna. A few kilometres from us are the sea and some of the most beautiful villages in Romagna. Explore them, by car or by bicycle, but remember to stop by.

SAN GIOVANNI IN MARIGNANO Called "the gateway to the Conca Valley", San Giovanni in Marignano is the first town in Romagna you come across on your way from the sea. Its hills have always been so fertile that wines and wheat of the highest quality are produced here. The olives we use to produce our oil also originate from these places. MONTEGRIDOLFO Close to the Marche side of the border is Montegridolfo. A small fortified village that over the years has been a stronghold of the Montefeltro and Malatesta families due to its strategic position. Totally restored, while maintaining its original structure, it is a small inland jewel. MONDAINO As the name suggests, deer grazed here in the past, and there was a temple dedicated to Diana, the goddess of hunting. In the Middle Ages it was a powerful Malatesta fortress, a lookout over the land of the Montefeltros, dukes of Urbino. Mondaino is still surrounded by fortified walls and is the stage for historical re-enactments. GRADARA Between Marche and Emilia Romagna lies Gradara, a small fortified village. It is best known for its Malatesta Fortress where, according to legend, Paolo and Francesca were killed by Gianciotto Malatesta, later the protagonists of the fifth canto of the Divine Comedy's Inferno. Gradara is also ideal for a romantic walk along the narrow cobbled streets leading to the castle. MONTEFIORE Montefiore is an Italian municipality in the province of Rimini in Emilia-Romagna. Small village in the hinterland of Rimini, was once an important outpost of the Malatesta with an imposing fortress that dominates from above the entire surrounding area. It is part, along with four other municipalities of Rimini, the association of the "Most Beautiful Villages in Italy".

TAVULLIA On the border between the provinces of PU and Rimini is the Marche municipality of Tavullia.
