Spending a few days in Rimini does not only mean relaxing on the beach, but also having an area rich in history, nature and one of the most renowned gastronomy in Italy. To tell you all about this and to deepen the beauty of this area, besides the classic places of seaside tourism, we thought to recommend some different itineraries: from the sea to the mountains, through the peculiarities and unique experiences that only the province of Rimini can give you.
Casteldelci occupies the last edge north of the province of Rimini, at the crossroads of three regions: Emilia Romagna, Marche and Tuscany. Destination of tourism are the Ponte Vecchio, of medieval origin, the towers that in the past served as lookouts and the house museum located in the historic center which collects finds from the local prehistory and protohistory as well as from the Roman and early medieval ages. For lovers of excursions, the territory of Casteldelci is full of paths that can be traveled on foot and on horseback, an intact natural environment in which excellent cheeses and cold cuts are produced which you can taste in trattorias, restaurants and farms.
Novafeltria is stretched out in a wide bend of the Marecchia river and due to its convenient position it was chosen, in the modern age, as a privileged venue for meetings for exchange and commerce. Destination of interest is the church of S. Pietro in Culto, built with other parishes of our valley, during the evangelization process of Montefeltro. Another ancient building located in Piazza Vittorio Emanuele, the center of the town, is the oratory of Santa Marina with the fountain in the center of the main square, designed by the architect Giuseppe Santi Botticelli. Novafeltria was a fiefdom of the Malatesta family first and then of the Conti Segni of Bologna who, in 1660, built a sumptuous villa, today the Palazzo Comunale.
San Leo, formerly known as Montefeltro, is located at 583 meters above sea level, 32 km from Rimini, in the Val Marecchia, on an enormous impassable rocky boulder; it is accessed by a single road cut into the rock. At the highest point of the spur rises the impregnable strong. The ancient city assumed the title of capital of Italy in 962. The city hosted Dante and S. Francesco d’Assisi, who received Monte della Verna as a gift from Count Orlando di Chiusi in the Casentino. The room where the conversation between the two men took place is still preserved. The architectural heritage preserved is remarkable: the pre-Romanesque parish church, the Lombard Romanesque Cathedral of the century. Xll, the fort; the museum of sacred art recently set up in the Medici palace, scattered over the municipal area, the ruins of several castles. The panorama from San Leo is one of the most beautiful and characteristic of the region: the view sweeps over the surrounding mountains and along the Marecchia valley to the sea. From the rocks of Mount San Severino it is possible to take off with a paraglider.
Located on the border between Marche and Romagna, S. Agata has very ancient origins. Already inhabited by the Umbri Sarsinati, in the following centuries it belonged to various fiefdoms, among which the Malatesta, the Montefeltro and then to the Fregoso family who gave the name to the fortress built around the tenth century. In addition to the aforementioned Rocca, now home to a permanent museum , S. Agata preserves a wonderful and well-maintained historical center and several complexes of considerable historical value, including the convent and church of San Girolamo and above all the Angelo Mariani theater which, with its entirely wooden structure, is the oldest theater in the Marche and one of the oldest in ltaly. All dominated from the top of Mont ’Ercole by an imposing chestnut forest. During the summer the surrounding natural environment invites to hiking and horseback riding. Of particular importance is the “Fair of the prized white truffle and agro-forestry-pastoral products”, a national event held annually on Sundays in October.
SANTARCANGELO DI ROMAGNA

San Marino is one of the oldest republics in the world and is “the only city-state that exists. “San Marino and Mount Titano are an exceptional testimony to the institution of a representative democracy based on civic autonomy and self-government. The historic center of San Marino on Monte Titano includes all the elements that illustrated its identity at the time of its foundation and during the medieval period of the Italian city-states. Numerous elements of the historic center that have been preserved or that have been restored, are part of a long tradition.
