The city of San Leo is reached, rising from the Adriatic coast, along the Strada Statale Marecchiese 258 which from Rimini, along the river Marecchia, leads to Tuscany. After about 20 km, near Pietracuta, the most populous village of San Leo, the road turns from the Marecchiese to the hills that lead to the Masso Leontino.
The traveler who arrives instead at St. Leo from the geographical heart of Montefeltro, takes the provincial road that from the summit of the Passo San Marco (986 m asl), slips for about 10 km through Villagrande Montecopiolo up to St. Leo, in a striking panorama crowned by the majestic backdrop formed by the Monte Titano (Republic of San Marino).
