  • The borgo of San Leo is charming and makes the ride is even better. A real back to the past, the Fort houses a lot of history and heritage, from the top you see a wonderful panoramic view. You can visit even where the prisoners suffered torture with all actual objects. I loved the ride, I highly recommend.

  • If you like not only to luxuriate on the beach, but also the surrounding areas, then be sure to take a trip to the small town of San Leo, located in the province of Rimini, near the border with San Marino. On top of the almost vertical cliff in the 15th century fortress was built here. Interestingly, in this fortress, the Vatican kept its one of the most dangerous prisoners — count Cagliostro.

  • For years I wanted to visit the fortress of San Leo in the hills of Rimini and finally I did it! The rock on which the fortress is a spur of the mountain partially collapsed that you see with the naked eye and is disturbing but aside from this aspect the building is gorgeous, magical, imposing and protagonist of the panorama! The entrance fee is €9.00 per person and for free you can have a very useful audio guide, which we took advantage again and that allowed us to explore the rooms, courtyards and squares; interesting 2 Cells of Cagliostro (especially the second), the area dedicated to instruments of torture and the exhibition dedicated to modern weapons. Really a magnificence!

  • San Leo is one of the most beautiful villages in Italy, full of magic and mysticism. As well, a well preserved fortress, was a prison of Cagliostro. There is an interesting Museum exhibition. And, of course, stunning views from the castle walls! Definitely recommend a visit!
