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.

The visit is well organized and there is a shuttle bus from the town centre for those who don't want to climb

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

...and go rather to San Leo. A grand fortresses on top a small village. The uphill is slippery so be careful to have good comfort shoes. Visit all the rooms and all the floors of the fort. There's something for everyone. Finish the visit in the village below and relax

It's a bit of a hike to the fortress but the views would make it worthwhile. Unfortunately, there was thick fog when we were there but the fortress itself is stunning.

You have to visit Fortress of San Leo when it's clear and nice weather. There are lot of great views. You can see mountains and sea together. There is smaller historic exposition inside castle, but interesting gun collection from 1st and 2nd world war.
