(Romagna and San Marino)

Walking in a territory, visiting the historic villages and discovering step by step what the land offers, is the best way to know its traditions; cooking these products together is a double pleasure for the soul and the body!
From Romagna we will cross the border of the Ancient Land of Freedom (Republic of San Marino) where we will stay overnight after an interesting visit; from one of the best viewpoints we will see the Rocca di San Leo, arrival point the following day.

The routes and the description of the tour

Morciano - Vallecchio
16 km 463 mt
Vallecchio - Montecolombo - San Marino
10 km 688 mt
San Marino - San Leo
15 km 728 mt

On day one, we shall take a short trip by bus from Riccione to the town of Morciano di Romagna from where we will depart on foot to Montecolombo along an uphill path through woods and countryside. We will visit the picturesque and panoramic village of Albereto with its scenic view of Mount Titano, where the ancient Republic of San Marino is located. We will then reach Montescudo where we will stay overnight in a farmhouse. During the day we will have the opportunity to prepare piadina Romagnola, the typical and famous bread of our region and then enjoy dinner based on traditional products.
The second day will be perhaps the most demanding, but well worth the effort. After a long climb and after enjoying lunch in the woods, we reach San Marino, where whoever so wishes can visit the old-city centre with a local guide. Dinner and overnight stay in the city centre.
On day three, the last day, we will go walking in the Tausani mountains, in the places where the painter Piero della Francesca depicted his Renaissance views, before reaching San Leo, a charming medieval town with an imposing castle perched on a massive rocky crag.
The trip back to Riccione from San Leo will be by bus.
During the three days of this tour we will always have packed lunches along the way so we are never distracted from the beauty of our surroundings.
