Monte Colombo is a comune (municipality) in the Province of Rimini in the Italian region Emilia-Romagna, located about 120 kilometres (75 mi) southeast of Bologna and about 15 kilometres (9 mi) south of Rimini.
Although the area housed some residences and scattered settlements in the Roman and Byzantine Ages, the current town originated in the Middle Ages from a castle built here by the Malatesta family. After the latter's fall and a short period under Cesare Borgia, Monte Colombo was acquired by the Republic of Venice, which however ceded it to the Papal States in 1509–10.
- Malatesta castle, with the annexed burg (14th century)
