Let’s discover the hinterland

…in which you’ll fall in love!

Let’s discover the hinterland

Romagna is a precious land that offers its most curious guests picturesque landscapes, ancient villages, castles, and natural landscapes by which Giovanni Pascoli was inspired at his time.

These places can be easily reached by car, not far from Bellaria Igea Marina. During the summer season, day and night trips are organized. But our advice is to go and discover them independently. If you do not own a car, do not worry: we will show you where to rent a car so that you can fully enjoy your holiday.
Our suggestions? Let’s find out together the itineraries you shouldn’t miss out on!

A gateway to the past, a special place, a pearl in the Valmarecchia, the “valley of the poets": this is Santarcangelo! The poets of the "Circal de giudeizi" meet here, together with their movement’s founder, Tonino Guerra. Don’t miss the Rocca Malatestiana, the Capuchin convent, the nineteenth-century fish hatchery, the Arch and Square dedicated to Pope Ganganelli, the mysterious tuff-stone caves and the wrought-iron and canvas rust-printing crafts shops.

Thanks to its strategic position, it dominates the stunning view of the Valmarecchia. Don’t miss, apart from the Rocca, the Collegiate Church of Saints Martin and Francis of Assisi, and the Civic Museum of Archaeology.

Distance from Hotel Eliseo: 22 km 
San Leo, the historic capital of the Montefeltro family, is located in the heart of Valmarecchia, on a 600 m. hill. Together with its fortress, the Pieve, and the Duomo, San Leo is also famous for the mysterious and fascinating personage, Count "alchemist" Cagliostro, who was imprisoned in the fortress and died there in 1795.

Distance from Hotel Eliseo: 39 km 
The village is located in the castle with an evocative drawbridge and an elegant semi-circular square. A film set and a location for thrilling historical re-enactments. The Galanti brothers’ accordion factory is located here. For food lovers, do not miss a visit to the Mill of Porta di Sotto, an enchanting place to discover the secrets of Formaggio di Fossa (Fossa cheese).
