Second leg: from Villa Verucchio to San Leo

-> next leg: from San Leo to Sant'Agata Feltria

<- previous leg: from Rimini to Villa Verucchio



We point out that in the locality of Torello the route is affected by the construction site of the new pipeline. In the first part you need to make a detour and then there is still a short but passable stretch of construction site.

We therefore suggest the variant.

At the entrance to Torello, instead of arriving at the provincial Marecchiese, at the crossroads, turn left onto via Torello, then via Grandone, which runs parallel to the Marecchiese and flows into it at the entrance to the town of Pietracuta. Cross it (be careful !!), to take the road in front of you, entering the town and passing the whole center on Viale Umberto I. Immediately after the Post Office, which is on the left, turn right into Via Don Luigi Sturzo , then immediately left into Via Pablo Neruda which runs all the way up to a clearing with a footbridge over the Mazzocco stream where it rejoins the main routeDownload GPS deviation of the pedestrian path to Torello





Leaving behind the more anthropized part of the route, this stage leads to San Leo, the place that inspired the Way and one of the most visited villages in the Montefeltro area.

From the Monastery of Santa Croce, we reach the beautiful historic town of Verucchio, which stands on a rocky promontory overlooking the Marecchia Valley and is dominated by the Malatesta fortress. A secondary road leads downhill to the Marecchia River and follows it for several kilometres along a dirt track. In summer, having reached the cliff of Madonna di Saiano, it is worth taking advantage of the small mobile bridge to ford the river, and making a short diversion to climb to the small hermitage before returning.

From Ponte Santa Maria Maddalena, we leave the valley floor again and climb along country lanes, surrounded by the landscape of the middle and upper valley. We reach the ancient Monastery of Sant’Igne, built on the site where Francis and Brother Leo bivouacked the night before entering San Leo, and thus an obligatory stop for pilgrims.

Another couple of kilometres and we reach San Leo, with spectacular views of the cliff and the mighty fortress.
