Gradara

Art, history and medieval atmosphere... Gradara is undoubtedly one of the most beautiful villages in Italy, but also the most romantic. It is here that Paolo and Francesca, as narrated by Dante, lived their overwhelming love story that led them to their death. If you want to relive this great passion and immerse yourself in the history of the Malatesta family, in this borderland between Romagna and Marche, don't miss the route that winds through the narrow streets of the town and reaches the ancient Rocca, still perfectly preserved today.

San Marino

"Reliquo vos liberos ab utroque homine"... it is with this phrase of the legendary stonemason Marino that in 257 AD the long history of the Land of Freedom begins. Retrace it by reaching the top of Mount Titano, where men, free from pope and emperor, gave life to the Serenissima Republic of San Marino. Discover the beauty, history and culture of this independent state overlooking the Rimini Riviera and reach its summit by cable car to enjoy a fantastic view of the coast.
