  • To visit if you're in the area! Called one of the most beautiful villages in Italy, a piece of history that has hosted important figures such as St. Francis and Dante, and often associated with the name of the Alchemist Cagliostro. Beware though the times: the Church and the Cathedral close from 12.30 to 14.30. The shuttle service to get to the rock stops between 12 and 15. If you arrive in San Leo just at lunch time, the advice is to stop and have lunch at restaurant Belvedere, who not only enjoys a great view, but offers a delicious menu at fair prices!

  • It is a truly remarkable fortress, curated, rich in history, (enjoyed x 2:00!) from which you can enjoy a splendid view. Take a walk along the trail or shuttle ke part from the square. At night the village becomes magical: the Church, the Cathedral and the Hill Fort, illuminati ... whow! Gorgeous!

  • Quaint village for its ancient churches. I was expecting something more from San Leo Castle, entrance 9 euros to see empty rooms and limited. I needed to use the toilet I found obscene in every sense. For that price you will pay at least a little more cleaning there wouldn't be bad. Great view given the location of the fortress. What for to visit is the shuttle bus runs from the town square.

  • 9 euro for the visit
  • 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!
