The municipality borders with Apecchio, Belforte all'Isauro, Carpegna, Mercatello sul Metauro, Peglio, Piandimeleto, Urbania and Urbino. It borders also on Monte Ruperto, a frazione and small enclave of Umbria in the Marche belonging to the municipality of Città di Castello, Province of Perugia.
Around 450 a bishopric was established as Diocese of Sant’Angelo in Vado, Latin Tifernum Metaurense In 590 it was suppressed, its territory being partioned, to establish the Diocese of Urbino and a part to the pre-existent Diocese of Città di Castello. No Ancient incumbents recorded.
On 1635.02.08 it was restored as Diocese of Sant’Angelo in Vado (Latin Tifernum Metaurense), regaining territory from the Abbacy nullius of San Cristoforo di Castel Durante, but was immediately and invariably held in personal union (United aeque principaliter) with the Diocese of Urbania (1635.02.08–1986.09.30). On 1636.10.20 it gained further territory from the meanwhile Metropolitan Archdiocese of Urbino.
On 1986.09.30 it was suppressed, its territory being merged into the accordingly renamed Metropolitan Archdiocese of Urbino–Urbania–Sant’Angelo in Vado (which thus absorbed and preserved its title), without having had a single proper bishop other then the incumbents of the Urbania see.
