Some great trivia about San Marino:


1)     It’s official name is the ‘Most Serene Republic of San Marino’

2)     It claims to be the oldest Republic in the world

3)     It was founded by a stonemason in 301 A.D.

4)     The capital of San Marino is erm…, San Marino

The locals probably wouldn’t wanna hear me say this but San Marino feels very Italian. They eat Italian food, they speak the Italian language but they are very proud of their independence.

San Marino probably has enough things to see and do to keep you occupied for the afternoon, making it a perfect day trip from nearby Rimini or, if you’re feeling motivated, Florence. I left Florence early, around 8am, and arrived in San Marino around 1.30, stayed until about 5pm and then was back in Florence around 9.30pm, What a day!

During my time in San Marino I really enjoyed walking around the old town, kicking back with gelato, eating ravioli and exploring what the city had to offer. After asking a few locals, I’d say there are three things you have to see and do when you’re in San Marino:

1)    Explore the UNESCO Old Town:

Since 2008, San Marino old town can proudly boats of its UNESCO world heritage status, and I think they deserve it. The old streets weave unpredictably throughout the city, there are no right angles in sight. Grab a coffee and watch the world go by.


2)    Passport Stamp time:

Just like Liechtenstein, you can get a stamp in your passport to prove you came to one of the smallest countries in the world. You have to part with 5 euros ($7) for the privilege though, I baulked at the price and made a quick escape!


3)    The Towers of San Marino:

There are 3 towers, but you can only access two. It’s 3 euro to enter each tower, or a combo ticket for 4.50 euro. The towers are the pride and joy of the city, then ever sit on San Marino’s flag. Views from the towers are second to none too so make sure you make the effort and climb them.


After that folks, you’re free to go! Time to make the arduous journey back to Florence, I’m off to Milan next. Happy travels!

    1. I travelled from Florence to Rimini in about 4 hours. Rimini is a really underrated place with about 10km of beach and a great strip of top-notch bars, clubs and restaurants. Rimini is very popular with Italian tourists but it hasn’t received much international attention. I loved it there and stayed in a decent hostel (Jammin’ Hostel) for just €25 a night.

      It’s worth staying in Rimini for 2-3 nights and taking the 30 minute bus journey to San Marino’s old town for a morning or afternoon train. It’s a great mix. You have the modern party town of Rimini mixed with the old world charm of San Marino City.
