  • Impressive dominates the Valley, perfectly restored and would say well clean, beautiful walks of 10 minutes for rafgiungerlo from the town center without using the shuttle with €1 takes you to the entrance. Nice to see and discover, great view from all sides. Go there without any doubt, entry €9.

  • 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!
