San Leo and orange flags
San Leo still retains its inaccessible character, high on a huge limestone boulder in perpetual balance of nature, with the two human footprints, the village and fortress, occupying the space of the cliff. The fortress stands on the precipice and looks like a ship stranded on the rock; He was kept in the dark his secret locked up until his death the Count of Cagliostro (according to legend, creator of the famous liqueur). The village grew around a square with the civic tower, the noble palaces, the church of San Leo, with a splendid marble tabernacle in the sanctuary, and the Duomo (XII - XIII), close to the cliff and devoid of a true facade. Interesting art gallery, with works by Guercino and Caravaggio.

San Leo boasts the "Orange Flag" from 2004, distinguished by high quality tourist offer, a land management respectful of local specialties, the scrupulous attention to the environment and innovative experiences of territorial development.
The Lighthouse and The Port
On the wide Boscovich promises the eighteenth-century lighthouse, a symbol of the Navy, which oversees the port-channel, a time stretch of the mouth of the river Marecchia. It was erected on the foundations of the old lighthouse built in 1754 and destroyed during the second world war, diverted to the north in 1972. And 'more than 27 meters high and has a light range of 15 miles.
The "shovel" of the port is a favorite destination of local people for a walk; it is from here that the sail fishermen with fishing boats of the "poveracce" (clams).
On the opposite side of the port channel develops San Giuliano Mare and Marina di Rimini, the new dock opened in 2002.
The extension of the piers, which began in the eighteenth century, has contributed to the expansion of the beach. The seafront towards Riccione constitutes the main axis of the seaside settlements, which have filled any remaining space between Rimini and Riccione.
Left to the port are located closely linked to fishing activities: from shipyards to machine shops, the wholesale fish market to the shops for boating.

We are in the Adamello - Presanella, more precisely in the eastern sector of the Presanella Group.
The proposed route of just above Madonna di Campiglio, home to lots of beautiful alpine lakes in some places, especially around Lake Gelato, very reminiscent of certain landscapes of Norway. The climb to Monte Serodoli is tiring and without any path or track, but in fine weather and good visibility definitely worth it for the great panorama, very interesting the stony "lunar" of the east side, where you can easily meet chamois. We propose a fairly long loop trail, approximately 14 km in length and with a total height difference, considering the climb to Mount Serodoli (the hardest part), about 1100 meters. It returns along the southern slope Pancugolo.
In the inner basin of the marina, it is home to the marina, while in the outer basin (the "dog", for the old sailors) there are the tourist ferries, a part of the fishing fleet, construction sites and maintenance services, and a modern airport tow.
The tourist port of Cesenatico, excellent compromise between tradition and innovation, is to be considered among the most beautiful marinas and characteristic of the Mediterranean.
To access the marina go up the canal harbor "Leonardo da Vinci" for about 500 mt. from the entrance and then veers to the right; particularly sheltered, the nautical base of Cesenatico is notoriously among the safest in the Adriatic.
The structure offers the possibility to easily moor boats up to 30 mt., Providing them all sorts of comforts, including a constant assistance by trained personnel, both during the day and at night throughout the year.
MADONNA DI CAMPIGLIO
The first written documents mentioning Madonna di Campiglio make up the foundation year 1190. When such Raimondo, in atonement for his sins, he decided to found a monastery-turned hospice care of the traveler. The monastery-hospice grew quickly, and at the head there was a priest prior.
The monastery was well known in the region and, thanks to the heritage of the faithful, reached considerable wealth. "No ghe mond, the Madona de Campei no gabia fond" he recited an old adage. After its suppression, in 1515, for Campiglio he began a long period of decline until 1868, when Giambattista Righi Strembo bought for 40,000 florins the entire former monastery substance.
And he built the first hotel and taken at their own expense the construction of the road connecting the centers of the Alta Val Rendena Madonna di Campiglio. The entrepreneurial adventure by Giambattista Righi was carried out by Franz Joseph Oesterreicher, who took over the di Campiglio property in 1882 and turned it into a refined holiday area for nobles and the rich Austrian and Central European bourgeoisie.
The family remained in Oesterreicher Campiglio until 1955, when its properties were gradually purchased. In 1948 he opened the first ski resort.
