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.

Monte Colombo borders the following municipalities: Coriano, Gemmano, Montescudo, San Clemente.


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 150910.
