San Marino

Being so close, we decided a days outing to visit the small country of San Marino was on the cards. Having a hire car in areas like this is a blessing as there is much to see along the way from Bologna and return.

San Marino is a mountainous microstate surrounded by north-central Italy and is among the world’s oldest republics, it retains much of its historic architecture. Situated on the slopes of Monte Titano is the capital, also called San Marino. A wonderful city known for its medieval walled old town and narrow cobblestone streets. The Three Towers, castle like citadels dating to the 11th century, sit on the neighbouring peaks.

It is one of the three towers depicted on both the national flag and coat of arms. It was registered as one of the World Heritage Sites in 2008.
