This is one of two castles (Sn Marino) which you need to visit if you are nearby. Castle located on the hill and you need to park your car in the historic centre of the city and hike to the hill. Ticker is 9EUR. and free audio guide. But you can get confused because rooms are without number and you... More

San Leo is a beautiful medieval town less than an hour from Rimini. The views are amazing and the town is a delight to walk around with even a small hiking trail.

Forte di San Leo is perched atop a rocky outcrop with unrivalled and commanding views of the surrounding countryside. Situated high above the town the fit can walk up to the fort whilst those not so active can catch the local bus. This medieval fortress has had an extremely interesting and somewhat outrageous existence once a stronghold for local Barons... More

We stopped here for a coffee and a walk in this lovely hilltop village. We didn't climb up to the fort instead we enjoyed the small square and its surroundings. There are two chapels to visit and the views are wonderful over the valley below. There is a large car park to cater for tourists close to the village square.

Worth the hike up just for the views. Can travel by bus and probably suitable for wheelchairs in that respect but to get around the fort inside then doubtful. The walls were oozing history.

Going up to the fortress has 2 options: the path up which is quite steep and 10 euro (per person) bus ride. The path takes us only 5-10 minutes. We didn't go inside because we read some reviews that it's not very well-maintained and clean inside, and it costs 8 euro. It got confirmed after we overhearded a group tour... More
