SAVE UP TO 40% ON SAN MARINO TOURS
San Marino has a great story to its beginnings, where Saint Marinua founded a village and republic back in 301AD on Mount Titano… there independence would come after Italian unification back in 1861. Some say this is all due to Guiseppe Garibaldi being sheltered here during the Risergimento.
At only 61 sq km, the views over this small country from Cesta Tower are not to be missed. The stunning old town clings to the hillside, as the Sammarinese territory is made up on 9 ancient citadels, with San Marino as the capital.
Although small, this country has a fascinating history, great museums and great architecutre. With great ties to Italy, it still has its own government, and distinct local culture. Everyone speaks Italian, but there is also a local dialect.
After dining on local speacialties like rabbit stew and black risotto, don’t forget before you leave to get a stamp in your passport at the post office.
