San Leo is a tiny medieval town at the edge of the Appenines with something for everyone. Don't let San Leo's star attraction at the top of the hill overshadow its other charms. Within the little town is a liquor distillery run by a really...More

We visited the fortres and the small village, San Leo. The village is small, but very pretty and has a friendly atmosphere. The view is breathtaking, mostly from the fortress. The entry is 9 euro and it is very interesting exhibition.

It’s a must see! You learn a lot about history of the region! Rooms, cells, torture tools,... and architecture of the place!
