Beautiful area which is definitely worth a diversion. The small town below the tower is lovely and a pleasant place for a meal or a drink, while the walk up to the tower and the tower itself are both lovely. If you don't want to actually visit the tower then go at sunset when the tower is lit up.

We have visited this nice castle in a half day trip from Rimini , we have rented a car, very useful to visit such places as SANTARCANGELO, GRADARA, SAN MARINO and SAN LEO. 2 hours is enough for this visit, very nice and you can visit it almost by yourself, it is not touristic. RECOMMENDED!!!

This is a great castle to visit just outside of Rimini. You can drive out and back in an afternoon. Beautiful views and interesting history.
