“There’s only one interesting thing in San Marino: the view. Thanks to its geographic location, this tiny country can look out at (and look down on) the surrounding Italian countryside. The panoramic view from Monte Titano is not beautiful because of San Marino, but because of the Adriatic, which lies just a few kilometers away.

A twenty-minute walk up moderately winding and moderately uninteresting streets is more than enough, and we can only stay and enjoy the view if we buy a coffee.

On the plus side, the citizens of San Marino hardly charge more than the Italians down on the plains, though it’s a feature of mini states that they’re usually expensive. A negative point is the fact that the view is practically the same from many neighboring, only slightly smaller hills, and there the parking doesn’t cost €2 per hour.



San Marino does not have its own airport.
