The tiny town of San Leo, perched up on a hill, with the castle towering over it and the country for miles around, is well worth the effort to visit. There isn't exactly a huge amount to see in the town, but it is pretty, and there are plenty of watering/eating holes. Once you're refreshed, climb (or drive) the hill up to the castle. Not too much to see inside, but the thing here is the view - from the castle, and of the castle from below. Makes a nice day out from Urbino- a fairly long drive, but scenic every inch of the way.

Dramatic setting with a medieval fortress hanging off a sheer cliff. Driving access and parking are good for a small medieval hill town. Nice town square with good restaurants, helpful town visitors center, and two unbelievable early medieval churches -- two of the best in Italy.

San Leo is a cosy town on a mountain in the province of Rimini. Historically it was part of the duchy of Montefeltro. It has two perfectly preserved romanesque churches. By a short and pleasant walk you can reach in 20 minutes the wonderful fortress. Inside there is a very interesting and accurate exposition on the mysterious Cagliostro, alchemy, the Italian inquisition.

A castle modelled on top of a huge rocky crag, a masterpiece of Renaissance military architecture by Francesco di Giorgio Martini. Under it, a small walled village, perfectly preserved. Two of the most beautiful early Romanesque churches in Italy - local stone with simple sculptural ornaments. One hour from the equally fantastic Urbino.

Without a car, it took me three buses and a train to get to San Leo from my base in Urbino but it was worth it.

The fortress is obviously the highlight given its spectacular setting and also its interesting history. But the Romanesque churches are charming, there are all those little streets to explore, a lovely main square to sit and have a drink,some interesting artisinal shops and of course the wonderful views from almost any angle in the town and on the way up.
